Question about 1998 Saab 900

1998 Saab Bell will not stop dinging, even when key is removed.

1998 Saab 900s convertible, the bell will not stop dinging. As soon as you open the driver's side door the bell starts dinging even with the key out.
How do I disconnect the bell?
Also, check tail light/stop light displays every time I start the car and there are no lights out.

The lights are most likely the third brake light on the decklid... small line of led brake lights small unit.. i would clean the ignition switch with some quick start and cycle the key in and out to clean up the contact on the bottom some times soda or coffe gets in there and makes the car think that the cars key is in the ignition

Changed battery terminals and now dinging wont stop unless warning light fuse removed


It sounds like it thinks the key is still in it all the time. Try turning the key forward to the on position, but not running, so the dinging stops. disconnect the battery. Remove the key completely and reconnect the battery.

Seriously annoying and hazardous malfunctions from out of the blu


You need a door pin switch in the drivers door. It must have gone bad, and this is very common. Usually it is hard to find out what door it is that is causing it, but in your case with the dinging bell- it thinks the drivers door is open- thast why the dome light stays on. The door pin switch is a little sensor that is installed on the latch assembly with a wire going to it and it is supposed to sence if the door is open or closed and turn the dome light on/off. you have to remove the door pannel and reach back to the latch. They are VERY tricky to get out without taking the whole latch assembly out. The part shouldnt be that expensive though.

Hi! I have a 2002 Cadillac Deville and yesterday I unlock the door with key pad and opened it and when I did I heard the chiming sound that it makes when you have the keys in the ignition with the door...


It may be trying to get your attention for an open door, trunk lid or other item requiring attention. Check your owner's manual for items that can cause it to chime.

Low coolant bell continues to ding


U will need to replace the low coolant sensor or try cleaning the one that is there now, they get coolant deposits on them and cause a false low coolant light/warning
