the chime actually is done with the radio. the front drivers door speaker. so if the radio works and the front left speaker works. then more then likely you have a defective door switch. located in the door jam that controls the dome light
Never rely on the door switch to shut off the lights. That is always an extremely unreliable system on any car. Whenever you shut a car off, turn off everything. That includes radio, AC, fan, etc. Otherwise you are putting a great strain on your battery when you next try to start it.
This problem is caused by a defective door ajar switch, this is what most call a "Dome light switch" Your vehicle has a function called "delayed exit", this means the accessories stay powered up until one of the doors is opened and the Body Control Module senses it and turns off the power to all the accessories like the radio, windows etc. To verify this open the passenger door, the system should shut off.
Next to the round exterior light switch is a switch that controls the brightness of the interior dome lights. You can push (detent) that button in and it will pop out to make it easier to brighten/dim those lights. The tricky part is that the switch for making the dome lights illuminate when you enter/exit the vehicle is actually the top half of the backplate of the dome brightness switch. It says "dome off" on the upper portion of the backplate. That one inch area - that barely depresses - is actually the switch to make the dome lights work with the door operation. Try pressing it and then opening your door. It should work. Good Luck!
U have a driver door defective courtesy light switch, this sytem has what is called delyed exit, it keeps all the accessories on until one of the door is opened, driver or passenger front will turn it off, so if the passenger front door shuts the radio off u need to replace the switch.
My wife showed me that one- the doom lite in center of roof is 3 postision, slide it to passanger side then back to center. Its a poorly made switch but once set in middle the lites will come on/off with door openning/closing. Be aware it dims delays when going off, not immediate.
I have the same truck. The thing is designed so that the radio and dome light and even the windows will operate for a time which should expire immediately when you open the door. Try turning on the radio with engine running and then turn off the engine and just sit there and the radio should still play. Try the power windows - they too should go up and down. Finally open the drivers door and that should immediately kill the radio, windows and dome light. If it does not - you will need to report that problem to your dealer since the problem is in that timer feature which is part of the vehicles "brain". Sorry I can't be more helpful.
