Sounds like the radio is going bad, there should not be any warning tones from the radio unless it is going bad.

Is there a way to fix the the turn signal chime and other various chimes on a 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt LS, there is no sound from them as well as front speakers?


The audible warnings alert the driver of a system concern or a critical vehicle condition. The radio generates the audible warnings through the speaker. The radio receives audible warning requests via the serial data circuit. If the radio receives multiple audible warning requests, the warning with the highest priority sounds first. The following lists the audible warning priority and the pulse rate:
?€¢
Fast rate chime (200 pulses per minute)


?€¢
Medium rate chime (150 pulses per minute)


?€¢
Slow rate chime (50 pulses per minute)


?€¢


Single chime

Where is my door chime located impala 2002


It comes through the radio an left front speaker .
The audible warnings alert the driver of a system concern or a critical vehicle condition. The radio generates the audible warnings through the left front speaker. The radio receives audible warning requests via the class 2 serial data line. If the radio receives multiple audible warning requests, the warning with the highest priority sounds first. The Multifunction Alarm generates the audible warnings on vehicles with RPO UL5 -- Radio Delete Option. The following lists the audible warning priority and the pulse rate:
The radio activates the door ajar audible warning as requested by the body control module (BCM). The BCM sends a class 2 message to the radio indicating the chime frequency of a medium rate and at a continuous duration. The door ajar warning sounds and the door ajar indicator illuminates when the following occurs:
  1. The body control module (BCM) determines that the driver's door is open and the signal circuit low. The IPC receives a message via class 2 from the BCM requesting illumination of the door ajar indicator.
  2. The vehicle is not in park. The BCM receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating the gear position.
Class 2 Serial Data Link
The class 2 serial data link allows the following modules to communicate and share data with each other:
?€¢
Auxiliary Power Drop Connector


?€¢
Body Control Module (BCM)


?€¢
Driver Information Center (DIC)


?€¢
Electronic Brake Control Module (EBCM)


?€¢
Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC)


?€¢
Powertrain Control Module (PCM)


?€¢
Radio


?€¢
Remote Playback Device-CD Player (if equipped with UQ3)


?€¢
Inflatable Restraint Sensing and Diagnostic Module (SDM)


?€¢
Vehicle Interface Unit (VIU) (if equipped)

The class 2 serial data link allows a scan tool to communicate with the above modules for diagnostic and testing purposes.

7 dings and a beep when starting 2000 ford explorer? what does that mean


NOTE: The generic electronic module/central timer module (GEM/CTM) is connected to the ISO link and is diagnosed through the data link connector (DLC) with a scan tool.
There are five warning chimes and lamps the GEM/CTM controls: headlamps operating without the ignition on (chime only), door ajar (chime and lamp), key-in-ignition (chime only), driver seat belt warning (chime and lamp), and message center.


Audible Warnings Warning Condition Lamp Duration Audible Duration Audible Output Safety Belt 60 Seconds 6 Seconds Chime, 60/Min. 740 Hz Key In Ignition - Continuous Chime, 120/Min. 740 Hz Headlamps On - Continuous Chime, 240/Min. 740 Hz Door Ajar Continuous 1 Second Single Tone, 1000 Hz Message Center (Tone Request) - 1 Second Single Tone, 1000 Hz
When the is turned to RUN or START from OFF or ACC, the chime will sound for six seconds or until the safety belt is buckled.
The will turn on for 60 seconds or until the driver safety belt is fastened. Both the chime and the lamp turn on at the same time.
If the safety belt is buckled before the ignition switch is turned to RUN or START, from OFF or ACC, neither the chime nor lamp will be activated.
Anytime the is changed to RUN from START while the safety belt warning indicator is activated, the safety belt warning indicator will remain activated until either the timing sequence has been executed or the safety belt is buckled.
When at least one door is ajar and the key is in the RUN position, the door ajar cluster lamp is activated and remains on until all doors are closed. A warning tone will sound once any time the key is in the ignition switch and any door is open.
The key-in-ignition warning will sound when the driver side is opened with the key in the and the in OFF or ACC. It will continue to sound until the key is removed, the is closed, or the is in RUN or START.
The headlamp-on reminder chime will be activated if the headlamps or parking lamps are on, the key is not in the ignition switch, and the driver door is opened.
A single tone will be provided each time a ground signal is received from the message center. A one-second tone will sound for warning indications from the message center. A 100 milli-second tone will sound for each message center button depressed.

Short in electrical system?


when the radio is OFF sound comes out of the rear speakers when the blinkers are used ! There isn't a turn signal flasher on your vehicle ,( like most all newer vehicles ) It's done electroniclly by a control module . In the case of your vehicle , the BCM - body control module . It doesn't matter if the radio is off . All the Audible warnings come out of the radio speakers . Headlamps left on , key in ignition etc... You have no idea of the complexity of your vehicle , it's a rolling computer , with a serial data network for the modules to talk to each other , share info.
When the turn signal switch is placed in either the left or right position, a ground signal is completed from the turn signal switch to the BCM. When the hazard flasher switch is activated, a ground signal is completed from the turn signal/hazard switch to the BCM. The BCM then sends an ON-OFF voltage signal through the fuses to the appropriate turn signal and side repeater (export only) lamps or to all of the turn signal fuses for hazard operation.
Really don't think you have electrical short . Computer glitch maybe , radio problem . How ever , these system's are not for the untrained to mess with . Your best bet , the GMC dealer !

2005 jeep wrangler when i turn lights on beeping starts


did you RTM read the operators guide yet,
it tells you why all beeps beep and what lamps flash, (warning) and why. did you?
you turn on, the head lights, (what about 1st click , parking lights"?)
and does the dash cluster, show warnings of any kind?

if a door is ajar the system will think, you are exiting veh. with lights on and tell you, buy beeping ,etc.
but on my jeep it says on the dash DOOR, or on EVICs, (not yours)
the newer car even tells what door IS AJAR.
mine on shows , "DOOR"
the operator guide will say, check all doors for ajar, and get warning clear before driving....etc.

The audible warnings alert the driver of a system concern or a critical vehicle condition. The radio generates the audible warnings through the left front speaker. The radio receives audible warning requests via the class 2 serial data line from the IPC or body control module (BCM). If the radio receives multiple audible warning requests, the warning with the highest priority sounds first. The following lists the audible warning priority and the pulse rate:
Fast rate chime--200 pulses per minute
Medium rate chime--150 pulses per minute
Slow rate chime--50 pulses per minute
Single chime

Is the sound heard different from typical Audible Warnings ?

Fasten Safety Belt Warning
The radio activates the fasten safety belt audible warning as requested by the IPC. The IPC sends a class 2 message to the radio indicating the chime frequency, slow rate and duration (5 pulses). The fasten safety belt warning sounds and the fasten safety belt indicator illuminates when the following occurs:
• The ignition switch transitions to ON.
• The inflatable restraint sensing and diagnostic module (SDM) detects that the driver's seat belt is not buckled, signal is low. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the SDM indicating the driver's seat belt status.
If the seat belt is buckled when the ignition is turned on, the chime does not sound. If the seat belt is buckled while the chime is sounding, the chime stops. If the seat belt is unbuckled after the initial transition to ON, the chime does not sound.
Headlamps On Warning
The radio activates the headlamps on warning as requested by the body control module (BCM). The BCM sends a class 2 message to the radio indicating the chime frequency, fast rate and duration, continuous. The headlamps on warning sounds when the following occurs:
• The ignition is OFF.
• The BCM determines that the driver's door is open, signal is low.
• The BCM determines that the headlamp switch is in the park or head position.
Key-In-Ignition Warning
The radio activates the key-in-ignition audible warning as requested by the BCM. The BCM sends a class 2 message to the radio indicating the chime frequency, medium rate and duration, continuous. The key-in-ignition warning sounds when the following occurs:
• The ignition switch is OFF.
• The body control module (BCM) determines that the driver's door is open, signal is low.
• The BCM determines that the key-in-ignition switch is closed, signal is low.
Turn Signal Reminder
The radio activates the turn signal warning as requested by the IPC. The IPC sends a class 2 message to the radio indicating the chime frequency, medium rate and duration, continuous. The turn signal warning sounds when the following occurs:
• The ignition switch is in the RUN position.
• The turn signal switch is in either turn position, sensing, within 1 second, an open to B+ transition in the turn signal control circuit, left or right turn.
• The vehicle has traveled a distance of 1.2 km (¾ mi) by counting pulses on the vehicle speed input circuit.
The IPC turns OFF the turn signal reminder when either the ignition switch is turned to the OFF position, or the turn signal switch returns to the OFF position, sensing, within 1 second, no transitions from open to B+ in either of the turn signal control circuits, left turn or right turn.
Additional Chimes
The following chimes will turn ON when an associated indicator/message turns ON in the IPC/DIC:
• ABS indicator
• AWD Disable indicator
• Battery/Charge indicator
• Brake indicator
• Change Engine Oil indicator
• Door Ajar indicator
• Hot Coolant Temp indicator
• Low Brake Fluid indicator
• Low Fuel indicator
• Low Oil Level indicator
• Low Oil Pressure indicator
• Low Tire Pressure indicator/reset
• Low Washer Fluid indicator
• MIL (Service Engine Soon) indicator
• Oil Life Reset
• Park Lamp Out indicator
• Rear Hatch Ajar indicator
• Service Traction System indicator
• Service Vehicle Soon indicator
• TRAC OFF indicator
For a description of an indicator refer to Indicator/Warning Message Description and Operation .
For diagnosis of an indicator refer to Symptoms - Instrument Panel, Gages and Console .

Did the Mechanic check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes in the BCM or insturment cluster ? Did you try a Buick dealer ?

Headlight left on warning not working, what should I look at?


Headlight on warning works through the radio and the Body Control Module (BCM). The BCM has an input from the lighting circuit and when it decides that the warning should turn on, it sends a class 2 serial data communications to the radio. The radio then sends a cime tone to the driver's front door speaker.

If by chance, you replaced the OEM radio with and aftermarket radio and did not install an interface module, you will be missing not only the headlight warning but many other warnings as well ( low oil / hot engine, etc.)
