Question about 2001 Ford F350 Super Duty SuperCab
Also door chime does not remain on with door open and headlights on &keys out
SOURCE: Door Chime Not Working
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.
Hope this helped

This is a common problem with the older saturns. The issue is in the key cylinder for the ignition. The way to fix it involves replacing the key cylinder, which in those cars is a total pain. It requires dismantling the steering column, drilling our the old lock, and replacing it with a new one. Problem is, it has to come from Saturn. There used to be a kit available from the dealer for about $120. I don't think it's available anymore. My wife's car has the same problem.

The two most likely causes of this are either a door catch switch faulty, or the buzzer itself is faulty. If its the door catch switch that is faulty (I am assuming its the drivers door in question), then the control unit will never know that you have opened the door, and therefor the buzzer stays quiet. I would have thought that your car will have a red light that lights up on the dash when you open any door, so check if this operates when opening the door (try it with both doors to see if the light does exist). If this light only works on one of the doors then clearly there is a door catch switch fault. this can be down to the switch itself, located within the door catch or the wiring to it which can sometimes break inside the rubber boot from car to the door near the door hinges. Constant opening and closing the door causes this area to flex back and fourth, and wires sometimes break here.
If the fault is not related to the door, then it is likely to be the buzzer. They do occasionaly fail. Unfortunately they are integral with the dash panael insert (The part with the speedo and rev counter).
