Question about 1999 Chevrolet Malibu

1 Answer

Remove door chime for 99 malibu, or replace with light/flasher

I hate the noise of the door dinger and I want to destroy it. I am trying to learn where it is and if it will cause any computer problems by removing it. (I hate how car manufactures try to install stupid things and prevent reluctant buyers from removing them.) I figured out how to kill the automatic headlights. Now if I can figure out how to kill that stupid door dinger, I can live with this car for a few more years.

The radio in my 99 silverado seems to be shorting out somewhere I think. It drains the battery and sometimes does not work while the pickup is running.

Some radios are not compatible with some cars unless they are wired independently or the car wiring suitably modified.

I once had to investigate a discharging battery fitted to a customer's car and traced the problem to the radio. When I removed the radio I discovered it quite warm to the touch in spite of it having been switched off for hours.
The Sony website told me that radio should never have been fitted to that car. The owners thought it would be ok because it just plugged in...

Not sure about dingers or chimes but a buzzer will create enough spurious interference to stop a radio working.

Door dinger disconnect sound

Year/make/model didn't post. You can disconnect the door chime module by unplugging it. Follow the noise under the dash and disconnect the module

Chev Malibu 2003 does a sequence of beeps one then two then three then four and does that over and over again in park and reverse til you drive but no lights on dash

It sounds like to me that the emergency brake is ingaged meaning it's pushed down one or two notches. ..and that will shut off the lights and make the warning dinger sound off

Why is my 2001 buick century custom dash lights, tail lights, cruise control not working and dinger is sounding don't know if it is ignition or head light dinger but stops when you close door

dinger is obviously your door open warning, problem 1 solved, dash and tail lights are often on the same circuit in many cars, this will need a new fuse, if this failed when replaced then you have a short, this normally happens in your tail lights

The flasher is located in the hazard warning switch and the hazard warning switch is located on the trim plate. Replace the flasher by unplugging the old one, removing it from the panel, and plugging in the new one.
