Question about 2001 Volkswagen Beetle
Most every time I start my '01 Beetle, I get 6 chimes while starting the car. It also will chime other numbers of times, like 3 then 2 chimes, other times it has chimed 5 times. It varies seemingly at different temps or if it's the first time starting or if I'm making trips and the car engine is warmed up. Any tips would help, Thanks.
These chimes are in fact warning codes, these chimes are telling you there is a problem, It may be a connection problem in your seat belt warning system to a serious engine problem, your dealer will know just by the tune it plays but check your seat belt first and then the dash warning lights

Your door lock module is bad. There are two ways to fix it. #1 is to replace the module. Various places online sell new ones for $160, while you can get them used for around $50. #2 is to replace the switch, which costs around $3-9, but then you have to remove the door lock module, remove the old switch, and mount/solder the new one in. You can also pull the door lock module and cut the wires going to the switch which will tell the door that it's always shut, and it will stop your dinging. That one's free, assuming you can get to the DLM.

Door left open chime is operated by your interior light switch. It is located in a few places on different vehicles. Often in the door jam at the front or low down on the pillar at the rear of the door. You will notice a little black rubber boot and when you push it it goes in and out. That is your interior light switch.
