2001 Oldsmobile Alero Door Chime fuse

I recently blew like 4 fuses installing a new stereo. I checked them all and replaced the blown ones i could find. I looked in all 3 fuse boxes. However, the door chime still doesn't sound when I have the door open and the keys are in. Anyone know which fuse it's associated with in the case that i missed one?

    if i was installing that stereo i would do as follows to avoid any more SMOKEY problems, if it was a sony deck i would go to car audio shop request a dedicated Sony to Oldsmobile harness plug in to deck then plug straight in to factory harness it is worth the $15-20 bucks to do it right,if you have already butchered the harness good luck and discard my request.John

It is probably the body control module. It thinks you left the lights on or door open with key in ignition.

Reset low tire indicator on a 2001 olds alero

Open the drivers side door, you need to remove a panel door that will allow you to access the fuse box.
Locate the the red button to the left side and press it a couple of times until you see your tire light flash, after it starts to flash hold it in for a couple of seconds and you will hear a chime 4 times and your light will be reset.
You need to have your key turned on but not running to be able to do this.

Where is use for radio on a 2000 alero

Turn off the car before pulling out a fuse. Find the two fuse boxes in the passenger compartment of your Oldsmobile Alero. One is on the driver's side and the other is on the passenger's side of the instrument panel.
Consult your owner's manual to find the location of the fuse you need to change. You can also find this information on the inside of the fuse box cover.

Locate the blown fuse. If it's a radio fuse in a 2000 Oldsmobile Alero, you'd find it in the slot marked "Radio Batt" in the fuse box on the passenger's side. Use the fuse puller inside of the fuse box to remove the fuse.

Check the inside wire of the fuse. A blown fuse has a burned or broken wire.

Put in a new fuse with the same rating. Verify the fuse rating against what's listed on the fuse box or owner's manual for the particular model and year in question. Click it into place and close the fuse cover. Restart you car and verify you've corrected the problem.

If the radio calls for a code: If you bought the car new then there should be writen in the manual the code for the theft lock system on the radio. Pre-owned then it might ,might not be in there. or if you don't have one at all. 
Go to your nearest GM dealer and have them fix it by finding the code using the Vin #. Make sure to have them write it down for you in case this happens again. 

Good luck and hope this helps
