These can be annoying and hard to find, Since it's a 2 door , check the buttons that the door hits when closing. Snap them in and out several times and if you have it, soak them with something like WD40. Is a dashboard light on to give you a clue ? The ding might also be related to the seat belts. Make sure ALL are snapped into their sockets to test that. Last resort is cut or disconnect the wire that goes into the "ding" module. I would recommend a mechanic with a tester who can pin down the problem and it should not take more than a hour labor or around a hundred bucks.

SOURCE: My Spare Key Won't Start My Car

ok well here's the thing. This key has not been used before. The keys are cut to the specs of the ignition so they may be undercut so to speak. I know on my car i can turn it upside down it will work. But on the other hand it could just possibly be a back up for when you lock your keys in your car (not likely but it's still possible). You can keep putting your key in and out a bunch of times and **** the steering wheel back and forth as you turn the key to get it used to the ignition switch. See if that works and if not i will see what i can come up with in the meantime for this exact car.

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

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.

Ignition alarm


I would say the switch is what you talking about
replacing,not the key cylinder

Never a simple solution to finding any problem, unless
the person working on the car gets lucky or has a sense
for certain problems on a some vehicles

"1999 Buick Century" unknown dinging draining


It's probably your ignition not being exactly disconnected when you remove the key.Until you get a new ignition (keyswitch),just jiggle the switch with your fingers after you remove the ke7y and see if the dinging stops. my Aerostar has that problem right now. don-ohio

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.

You are probably unaware that your jeep has an aftermarket keyless entry system....Try this....roll down the drivers window....push the power door lock......get out/close the door...and attempt to open the door as u normally would.......it should be locked...... use your key to unlock the door....get in.....insert the key into the ignition and turn it to on...((((DON"T TRY 2 START IT UN TILL THE WARNING BELL STOPS DINGING & ALL THE DASH WARNING LIGHTS ARE OUT)))...........usually 5 dinging sounds.......at any rate just wait untill the sounds stops and fire up your jeep.....i hope this works for ya.....good luck

Need to reset the key fob


Sit in the driver's seat
Close all vehicle doors; ignition key should NOT be in the ignition, and ignition should be OFF.
Press and hold UNLOCK on your driver's door lock switch, insert and remove your ignition key TWICE, and insert the key in the ignition; this time LEAVE IT. DO NOT TURN THE KEY!!
LET GO OF THE DOOR SWITCH; listen for 3 dings after which, with the key still in the ignition, you will press and hold both LOCK and UNLOCK AT THE SAME TIME on your transmitter for 12 seconds. or until you hear 2 DINGS which indicate a newly programmed transmitter.

If you wish to use more the one transmitter (4 MAX), press and hold lock and unlock just as the first transmitter.

PULLING OUT THE IGNITION KEY ends this procedure :-) !

Key on engine running trouble code 55


Warning Chime Systems The generic electronic module (GEM) will sound the following warnings:
  • key-in-ignition warning
  • safety belt warning
  • headlamp switch ON warning
  • door ajar warning
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Headlamp Switch On Warning The generic electronic module (GEM) sounds when the driver door is opened while the headlamp switch (11654) is in the PARK or HEAD position, and continues to sound at a rate of 4 chimes per second until the headlamp switch is turned off or the driver door is closed.
  • When the headlamp switch is in the PARK or HEAD position, power is supplied through Circuit 293 (O/R) to the GEM.
  • When the driver door is open, the driver door open warning lamp switch (10B997)is closed and ground is supplied to the generic electronic module (GEM).
A delayed headlamps on repetitive chime will sound for a period of three seconds beginning twenty seconds after the key is turned to OFF, LOCK or ACC, the headlamp switch is in the PARK or HEAD position, and the driver door is closed. Delayed headlamps on is terminated by opening and closing the driver door again.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Door/Liftgate Ajar Warning The door/liftgate ajar warning functions as follows:
  • The generic electronic module (GEM) sounds a warning tone for one second when any vehicle door, liftgate window or the liftgate is ajar without any other door already open and the ignition switch is in the RUN position.
  • Power is then supplied through Circuit 627 (BK/O) to the door ajar warning indicator lamp which remains illuminated until all doors are closed or the ignition switch is no longer in the RUN position.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Key-in-Ignition Warning The generic electronic module (GEM) sounds when the LH front door is opened with the key in the ignition switch and continues to sound until the key is removed or the door is closed.
  • When the key is in the ignition switch, the ignition key warning switch terminal and wire (11A128) is closed and ground is supplied through Circuit 158 (BK/PK) to the generic electronic module (GEM).
  • When the LH front door is open, the LH front door open warning lamp switch (10B997) closes and ground is supplied through Circuit 57 (BK) to the generic electronic module (GEM).
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Safety Belt Warning When the ignition switch is turned to RUN or START from the OFF or ACC position and remains in RUN or START, the chime will sound for six seconds or until the safety belt is buckled. The safety belt warning indicator lamp (10C859) will turn on for 60 seconds, or until the LH front safety belt is fastened. Both the chime and lamp activate at the same time. If the safety belt is buckled when the ignition key is turned to RUN or START from OFF or ACC, the lamp will prove out for two seconds, but chime will not be activated. Any time the key is changed to RUN from START while the safety belt warning indicator is activated, the safety belt warning indicator will remain activated until either the timing sequence has been executed, or the safety belt is buckled.
