Last week I had the door speakers replaced, and now the door chime doesn't work (the one that goes off when you leave the headlights on or the keys in the ignition when you open the door). I've checked the fuse, and it's fine. I just don't know where the chime is to see if they possibly knocked a wire off while running new speaker cables to my stereo.
I have the same year and I completely removed mine. It is of course under the dash in the middle of the truck. Behind the power point. It is not deep in the dash, about where the carpet stops and meets the dash. The harness is gray and about an inch plus wide, it plugs into the chim box which is black and about 3" X 2" X 1/2". just approx.

the chime actually is done with the radio. the front drivers door speaker. so if the radio works and the front left speaker works. then more then likely you have a defective door switch. located in the door jam that controls the dome light
Is the door chime working and you want to disable it or is there no chime at all?First off the door chime comes through the radio speaker,if you need to disable it you will need to cut the wire from the speaker to the chime.If is annoying you can spray foam on it and muffle it .I believe that it uses data bits from the head unit (radio) to function so another way to get rid of it is sort of drastic but change out your head unit.Sorry your question only asked about where the fuse is and to the best of my knowledge is that is is none.
I have a 2008 Silverado and noticed my chime was not working. They work off the front door speakers. Found out GM put the cheapest speakers on the market in them. Bought a new pair of Kenwood speakers from Crutchfield and installed them last week. They sound great. I will probably install Kenwood's in the rear doors since it's only a matter of time before they die too.
I had to cut the retracting wire for opening the door as it got jammed could not close door without chime going all of the time . I removed the fuse which solved the noise problem except now my radio and clock will not work . I know the chime goes through the speakers . How can I disconnect the wire from the door and put the fuse back in the get my radio and clock working . I do not plan to replace the retraction wire for the automatic door
You have to pull the door panel off. Then there are a couple of plugs that go to the door latch mounted on the jam. One of the plugs is for the chime. Pull it, but you might have to put a jumper wire in the plug. I work on a lot of different cars and seen them work both ways. So I am not entirely sure how yours works. Unplug it and if it goes off your done. if it doesn't, use a jumper wire in the plug.
First you did not mention trim level or what radio you have asuming you have a RDS radio system since you mentioned your radio did in fact work that gives me the impression you do nt have a WT or base model. If in fact you have a RDS radio the chime only chimes on the one driverside speaker (large one in door not the tweeter) See if that speaker is opperational. If it is opperational and you have the controlls on the steering wheel locate your owners manual and see how to enable the chimes or disable the chime. You or someone may have disabled the chime. Try these two posibilities if they dont work resubmit and I will look into problem farther, it may be in the radio itself.
The door chime is played over the speaker. I had the same issue the speaker was junk. The circuit resistance was correct but no tunes. Replaced the speaker with one from the junk yard and sounds great all the time.
Well, time, patience, and past knowledge... allowed me to determine that the voice coil of the woofer was bad. I wasalmost able to blob solder at the coi, to get it fixed. But, it never got reliable. So, I shall replace both sides with better speakers.... I was able to hear the car's 'chime' in the tweeter, though barely. That led me on to disassemble the door, and learn more, like that the door is wired by a bi-amp situation....
