    On the other side of the cover you pull off to get to your fuses, there should be a diagram showing what fuse goes to what.

I have a 2001 jetta every time I have my doors shut and put on my headlights it makes a beeping sound but stays constant like ehhhhhhhhhh it won't stop until 5 min into driving how can I turn it off??...


Sounds like the car thinks its off or the door is open and your leaving your lights on thats usally a warning once you turn car off or open the door to let you know that you forgot to turn em off so you do not kill the battery.

it could be the igitnition switch but from hwat i read its likely driver side front door lock microswitch stuck open.
if you have little expe....you can replace it your self and that will solve your
isue.one more thing..microswich is part of the door lock unit.good luck.
see how to for passat below the jetta is very simialar and in comments the differences are explained:

Program remote


The horn chirp can be disable by pressing the lock and unlock buttons simultaneously until the hazard lights flash, and no enable press the lock and unlock until the horn chirp.
To reprogram (enter new ID) key fob (keyless remote controller) follow the steps.
1. Close all doors and lock all doors
2. Insert and remove the key from the ignition key cylinder more than six times within 10 seconds. (The hazard warning lamp will then flash.) NOTE: Key should be withdrawn from ignition key cylinder completely each time.
NOTE: Do not rush the insertion/removal key cycling process. The side marker/tail/license lamps and interior illumination will flash twice when this step is accurately completed.
3. Insert key on ignition key cylinder and turn ignition key switch to "AAC" position At this time, the new ID code is entered and original (previous) ID codes are erase.
4. Press any button on the new remote controller once. (The hazard warning lamp will then flash)
NOTE: Do not press the button more than one time in the above step. If the button is pressed more than one time, the programming procedure will not be successful. The side marker/tail/license lamps and interior illumination will flash twice when this step is accurately completed and programming is successful.
If there is only one remote controller skip step 5.
5. Additional ID code entry Release the door lock, then lock again with door lock/unlock switch (In power window main switch)
6. Remove key from ignition
7. Unlock driver side door, open driver side door and then close the door. (END)

Where is the door chime on a1995 mercury grand marquis


It's the same as the lights left on and the key in door open its called the generic eletronic module and it's in the dash to the right of the steering collum. Why do you want to know as all kinds of things are run by this device and it costs plenty. If it keeps chimbing and you want to stop it all kinds of things don't work with it unplugged ( interior light's cruise control, air conditioner and heat,Radio,Automatic headlights. Daytime running lights) If its saying the doors open, it is! Just because it looks closed doesn't mean that they are the most likly is the driver door and the switch is in the door latch that holds the door closed. The switches rust break fall off or get disconnected. worset problem is the wire from the switch breaks in the door hinge area and the wire will need to be found and replaced or repaired. The modules seldom fail unless submererised in water or the battery hooked up backwards or jumped off wrong battery cable removed while the engine in running but alot of this other stuff will work wrong too.

Where is the relay / speaker that the audible warning comes from?


go into the fuse box and remove the interior light fuse.there is a dome over ride so the interior lights do not come on when the door is open on most cars ,it is usually with the dash attenuator switch that controls the instrument cluster.the other option is to remove the door switch and short the two wires together

there is a switch that is activated when u open the door, it is called the courtesy light switch or the door ajar switch, u will need to test it for continuity, most likely it is defective.
