'97 Pontiac Transport-instrument panel lights out, dinging sound

My instument panel lights and tail lights went out this week and I have a "ding ding ding" sound repeating over and over everytime I turn off the car until I shut the door. It is loud and fast. I know it is trying to tell me something - but what??

    I have checked all the fuses on theside door panel. None are blown and the one I think is specifically related to this circuit is called IGN-1. It was not blown, but replaced it anyways.

    I then looked for fuses and relays under the hood. The box had one blown fuse, which when replace make the instrument panel light up for a short while then it all went black again and the fuse (#37) is blown again.

This shouldn't effect the tail lights but the dimmer switch on my vehicle was defective and made the panel lights work intermittently. No further problems after the switch was replaced.

My brake light is on and it keeps ding ding dinging and its very anoying because the E-brake is off. my problem is i lost the cover for my fuse box under the dash, so i dont know what one to pull to stop...


under the dash at the E brake there will be a single wire should be TAN with a WHITE tracer (stripe) and a black connector disconnect that and the dinging should stop then you can replace that switch that you just disconnected
hope this helps

94 bonneville with dinging noise


Which light is on ? The ABS light or regular Brake light?
If ABS light is on, your ABS is currently not working and it might be an electrical problem.
If the regular brake light is on something is wrong with the hydralics in the brake system. Either way bring it in ASAP. Good luck
