    Thanks Fusster


     All chime warnings are not working, lights on, seat belt, etc. What could cause a complete failure? We can live with it but it would be nice to know if you left your lights on.


     Cheers

Have you checked the fuse box, it may be on an obscure circuit. check each and every fuse closely.

My aftermarket radio is not working in my 2005 Chevy equinox. Do anyone know why? It's a new radio and all of the wires are connected properly. The chimes stopped working as well. Fuse are new as well


The chimes work through the factory radio , come out driver door speaker . There is a interface module you need to hook up on GM vehicles so aftermarket radios will work . With these newer vehicles your better off taking to someone or place that does this on a daily basis . Does it start an run ? If it does i'm surprised , factory radio is also hooked to the vehicle serial data network , class 2 . Suggest you google that .

Battery positive voltage is provided to the radio from the Radio (15A) fuse in the fuse block. The radio is grounded through a braided cable case ground. The radio is enabled/disabled by Class 2 messages from the body control module (BCM). The entertainment system on this vehicle is configured with a base and uplevel system. The base and uplevel systems contain a radio, antenna, speakers, and on some vehicles an audio amplifier.

The audible warnings alert the driver of a system concern or a critical vehicle condition. The radio generates the audible warnings. The BCM receives audible warning requests via the class 2 serial data line or the controller area network (CAN) data line. If the BCM receives multiple audible warning requests, the warning with the highest priority sounds first. The following lists the audible warning priority and the pulse rate:
Fast rate chime--200 pulses per minute
Medium rate chime--150 pulses per minute
Slow rate chime--50 pulses per minute
Single chime

How do i disconnect fuse to seat belt alarm tried three time method didnt work


The seat belt warning chime is controlled by the central timer module ! You can't just disconnect fuses , other things may stop working !
Safety Belt Warning Indicator Lamp and Chime
The safety belt indicator and chime feature is controlled by the CTM. The driver safety belt switch is hardwired to the CTM. If at any time during the first 60 seconds after the ignition switch is placed in position II, if the driver safety belt is sensed as being unfastened, the CTM will process the input, and in turn, output a signal to the CTM through a hardwired circuit. In turn the CTM will output a visual warning to the instrument cluster. If at any time during the first six seconds after the ignition switch is place in position II and the safety belt is not fastened, the safety belt warning chime will sound.
When the seat belt is connected the warning still chimes ? Could have code stored in the CTM .

Why won't my My 98 or 99 (sic)Ford Escort chime to indicate I left my lights on?


The warning chime sounds if the parking lamps (13200) or the headlamps (13008) are left on after the key has been removed from the ignition switch lock cylinder and either front door (20124) is opened. There is a chime module that controls this .
The safety belt warning chime (10D840) (also called the central processing unit or CPU) is an audible warning system and timing circuit. The system components include:
  • Timing circuit safety belt switch.
  • Dome lamp switches.
  • Safety belt warning indicator switch which is an integral part of the front safety belt buckle end (61203).
  • Ignition switch (11572).
  • Headlamp switch.
The warning chime sounds and the safety belt warning indicator illuminates when the ignition switch is placed in the ON position and the LH front safety belt is not buckled.
Key In Ignition Warning
The warning sounds if the key is left in the ignition switch lock cylinder when either door is opened and the ignition switch is in the LOCK or OFF position.
Don't any of chimes work ?
  • The Headlamp on Reminder Chime Is Inoperative/Does Not Operate Properly
  • Circuits.
  • Fuse junction panel.
  • Warning chime module.
  • GO to Pinpoint Test D .
Let me know ,mite work this out !

6 chimes when starting


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

THERE IS A BEEPING NOISE THAT STARTS AFTER DRIVING IN MY 2000


Here are the warnings:

The generic electronic module (GEM) controls the following warnings and chimes:
  • Driver safety belt not fastened (warning lamp and repetitive chime).
  • Key-in-ignition (repetitive chime).
  • Headlamp-on warning (repetitive chime).
  • Door ajar (warning lamp and single tone).
The following four distinct chime rates are used to indicate warning:
  • Seat belt warning chime is one chime per second.
  • Key-in-ignition warning is two chimes per second.
  • Headlamp-on warning is four chimes per second.
  • Door ajar warning is a single chime.
please rate as solved if this is what you needed.

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.
