Chime will also sound when key is left in ignition... perhaps the sensor in the ignition is stuck?... Hope this helps...;-)

2005 jeep wrangler when i turn lights on beeping starts


did you RTM read the operators guide yet,
it tells you why all beeps beep and what lamps flash, (warning) and why. did you?
you turn on, the head lights, (what about 1st click , parking lights"?)
and does the dash cluster, show warnings of any kind?

if a door is ajar the system will think, you are exiting veh. with lights on and tell you, buy beeping ,etc.
but on my jeep it says on the dash DOOR, or on EVICs, (not yours)
the newer car even tells what door IS AJAR.
mine on shows , "DOOR"
the operator guide will say, check all doors for ajar, and get warning clear before driving....etc.

if you lost the guide here it is for free

click the 05 link
ignore beeps, there are just too many .. i look at the cluster and learn to read it..
my newer jeep 08 can produce 1000s of errors,,,,, possible.
in fact the intent it to beep to tell the driver to look at the cluster
for in depth, causes.
see chapter starting on page 136'

once sound it makes is Check gauges chime. so check them.
and headlamps left on
and door ajar.

page 63
NOTE: If the driver's door is left open, and the headlights
or parking lights are left on, the "High Beam
Indicator Light" will flash and a chime will sound.
Lights-On Reminder
If the headlights or parking lights are on after the ignition
is turned off, a chime will sound when the driver's door

its a crude system, and evolved to complex in 2007.
"DOOR" or RF-door , on mine.
or

NOTE: A tone will chime if the turn signals are left on
for more than 1 mile (2 km).

Headlight chime


do you lock the car with a key or fob-do not get out of the car before you check the position of the light switch-make it a habit-like making sure your smart phone is in your hand-infact you could use your smart phone to trigger checking the light switch-i e -do not pick up your phone until you are sure the light switch is off- cheers Denny

My warning signal does not go on when i leave my headlights on... is that a fuse?


I would check your door pins and make sure they are not sticking or rusted for some reason. If the door pins do not pop out when the door is opened your computer will not sense your door being open and will not set off the warning chimes. Do your dome lights work at this time? If they do it is not the fuse at fault for your warning chimes not coming on.

I am in the Army and away from home attending a course and my wife calls me to inform me that a steady warning chime is going off inside the truck. When I asked to hear the chime it sounds to me like it...


The headlight switch turns on the courtesy light when twisted. Tell her to make sure that the headlight switch is twisted off the indent. If this isn't it, it may be the body control module.

My rearview mirror lights and dome light in my 2004 Grand Am will not turn off even when buttons/switch are in correct positions.


This could be related to the switch located on the door jam of your car. As you know, normally when you open your cars' door, the courtesy lights in your car will illuminate to help facilitate your exit. However, if the switch is broken or malfunctioning it will 'think' your door is ajar even if it is not. A good way to test this theory is to turn your headlights on and listen for the chime that reminds you that you've left them on if you should try to exit the car.
However, if you've installed an aftermarket stereo in your vehicle, due to the chimes being routed through the factory stereo(in post-2003 models), if the correct equipment wasn't installed, these chimes will not sound.

Warning bell won't stop sounding


Section 13-09: Gauges, Warning Devices — Chime System 1996 Windstar Workshop Manual
DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION Warning Chime Systems Three distinct sounds are used to indicate the area of concern. Seat belt warning generates 1 chime per second
key-in-ignition generates 2 chimes per second
headlight on generates 4 chimes per second.
Key-In-Ignition Warning The key-in-ignition warning will sound when the driver's front door (20125) is opened with the key in the ignition switch. It will continue to sound until the key is removed, the front door is closed, the ignition switch is turned to START or the vehicle speed is over 24 kmh (15 mph).

Safety Belt Warning When the ignition switch is turned to RUN or START from OFF or ACC, the chime will sound for six seconds or until the safety belt is buckled.
  • The safety belt warning indicator lamp (10C859) will activate for 60 seconds or until the driver's safety belt is fastened. Both the chime and lamp activate at the same time.
Anytime the ignition switch is released from START and returns to RUN while the safety belt lamp or chime is activated, the safety belt warning lamp or chime will remain activated until either the timing sequence has been executed, or the safety belt is buckled.

Headlamp Switch On Warning The chime will be activated if the headlamps or parking lamps are ON, the key is not in the ignition and the driver's door is opened. The chime will sound at a rate of four per second.

2005 Honda CRV Headlight Chime


I just found an answer at an auto forum site on the web. The problem is the door switch in the door. It thinks the door is "closed" when it is in fact open. So fix the door sensor switch in the driver's door
