Chime goes off on my car . I think it is the door sensor in my passenger door. The chime also goes off when I go uphill(sometimes). The car isn't registering that the door is closed. The chime always goes off ,then stops after I turn on the car. Then the car just sometimes chimes when I'm driving , the sometimes when I go uphill. Can I de-activate the sensor and is it in the locking mechanism? It is not my seatbelt, I always buckle up.

Re: chime goes off
Open the drivers door and look at the hindge area and you will see a black rubber accordian tube between the door and the pillar.This is the protective cover for the wiring harness. Now take a screw driver and stick it into the latch that latches when u close the door and trip the latch. Now start up the vehicle and wiggle the black tube and see if you can duplicate the concern. If so then pull the cover back and inspect the wires for a broken wire. these models are bad for this happening.

Door ajar sensors on explorers get disconnected, sometimes the magnets get stuck. Spray WD40 or a lubricant on all four door jamb mechanisms (or two). Sometimes only one fails, and it is usually the tail gate one. Do a google.com search for the location of the sensors and see if they need replacement.
Check all your seat belt attachments! This seem to be a leading oroblem with all vehicles that has a few miles on them. All it takes is wasting coffie or soda's into one of those locking mechanisms and it thinks the seat belt is not locked. All these vehicles have seat sensors too! If you sat anything more than 3 to 5 lbs on the seat, it thinks someone is sitting on the seat and the chime will continually go off and drive you nuts. Hope this helps you with your problem Sir
1. Turn off the overhead over-ride switch. Drive again. Do the chimes stop? If yes, the door is not closing properly due to the door contacts. Clean them yourself or have them serviced.
2. If the chimes did not stop in step 1. above, it's not likely the door but rather something else.
3. Chimes occur for many reasons. Suggest checking - a. are the rear back-up warning sensors blocked/dirty? b. any other lights on the dash like oil, abs, airbag, etc? c. passenger side airbag disabled - something heavy placed in passenger seat?
In my experience, it's the automatic door contacts. We have a long history of problems with these auto doors, that are still not resolved. problems all throughout the warranty period, and now into the extended warranty period. We must unite and get GM to resolve the quality of these doors. My next step (next incident) is going to be to have the dealership inspect the entire wiring system.
ON Ford cars and Suv's,
Some times the sound chime after the seat belt buklet.
Is like a open door.
The problem on this car is that the the DOOR AJAR SWITCH. come danaged. and the Body cumputer don't recievethe door close signal.
But is intermitent.
The door ajar switch is on the door lacth.
You only can get front the dealer.
OK. I hope this information can be useful for you.
