SOURCE: Chevy Equinox, 2005 - When door opens..radio does not go off

the button (its like a little plunger switch) that actuates the dome light also triggers the keys in ignition while door is open alarm. also the radio etc. try finding that button...(usually inside the doorframe ) and press it really fast and release repeatedly to loosen up some possible rust...if that doesn't work. then replacing that simple switch may be needed...it should be easy to replace as it has a simple connector after you pull it out and disconnect it. Ask the dealership for a replacement if its out of warranty. hope this helps.

SOURCE: Remote Door Lock/Unlock will not work.

At first look, I would have guessed that your battery in the door opener was dead, but that is not the case. I suggest driving to a nearby Chevy dealer and ask one of the salesman if he/she can help. They have always been helpful to me. If not try another one as they are in business to sell not only cars, but service also. They will be your best bet to fixing it. :D

SOURCE: 03 Chevy Suburban says right rear door ajar when closed

Replace the rear door pin-switch if needed after testing proper operation.
It is telling the alarm the door is open all the time.
Most likely corroded terminals or wire.

My 2000 ford explorer is having issues with the door alarm and interior lights remaining on even though the door is shut.Any advice is great.Cheers.


Go sit in your truck and close all the doors. Light stays on right? Put your key in the ignition. Does the chime start going off when you put the key in? If so, door switch or the GEM thinks a door is open.

To find out which door... Leave the key in the ingntion. Turn to the on position. Even with doors closed, chime sounds once after a few seconds and door ajar light comes on and stays on right? Open each door one by one. The chime should sound each time you open a door. When you find the door that doesn't make the chime sound when you open it, that is the problem. (Don't forget to try the rear hatch and the hatch glass also!) To determine if the switch is bad or if the GEM is having a problem thinking the door is open, just unplug the suspected switch, close all the doors, and see if the problem stops. (don't forget to wait a second to give the lights time to go off) If unplugging the switch solves it, the replace it. If it doesn't, Ford can check your GEM to see if it is the problem.

I hope this helps

I bought a Chevy Trailblazer, used, had keyless remote access Viper Alarm after manufacturer. Had trouble with transmission and alarm....took to Chevy dealer they replaced transmission. Now the remote...


You need to find the black push button called the valet button. That is the overide. Get in the car turn the key to IGN as the alarm is going off and then you have either 5 or 10 seconds to push that button once and then 2-5 seconds later the alarm is shut off. To put the car into valet mode which means no alarm at all you put the key to IGN push that button once then pull key out at which point the blue light should turn solid blue.

Or option two is you open a door and hit the lock, then unlock, then lock button again on the remote and the blue led will be solid which means no crazy alarm.

those are your daytime running lamps on your headlight switch there is a setting for them to be turned off if you turn your car off and just leave the key in accessary they should shut off if not able to do it this way turn key to accessary and open the door they should go out.

Alarm sounds everytime key removed from ignition?


There is a switch either in or on the driver door that turns on the interior lights and tells the module the door is open and the key is still in the ignition, this sounds the alarm, check all the doors and make sure they turn the interior lights on and off when the doors are opened and closed.
