Door chime won't stop

Hi..The door chime won't stop after you take out the key and open the door, in fact it chimes faster. It does stop when you close the door. I also have no rear lights & the auto lights on stopped working. Any ideas?

SOURCE: door ajar light and chime come on while driving -

WD 40 or CRC WHITE LITHIUM GREASE SPRAY in each latch for the truck/car and open and close doors. Repeat and this should solve it.

SOURCE: "Headlights on" warning chime not sounding when I open car door.

I had the same problem as this...

When you open or close your door there is lever that sits just below the the door latch that is attached to the frame of your car by a single screw.

It is a black plastic L shaped bit of plastics that slides on its own guide. It has obviously started to malfunction over time.

To double check this:

Turn the car lights on
Open your door
Locate the black L shaped plastic level.
Wriggle it around sliding back and forth - if it starts to work when you are applying pressure onto it it looks like it has broken.

Go to your local wreckers and ask them for a replacement part (it cost me $2.00 AUD to get mine)

To take the part off all you need to do is push the level back as far as it will go and you will see a phillips heads screw holding it in place.

Undo the screw and detach the part (there will be a wire attached to the back of the metal guide)

Unplug the wire and throw the part into the bin.

Attach the wire to the back of the new part and screw the new one into place.

All should be working fine now.

Good Luck

SOURCE: 2007 HHR Radio and chimes not working

Check the radio fuse. As unusual as it seems, GM has started having the radio (even though not turned on) generate the chimes and turn signal sounds. If the radio fails, all the chimes fail too.

This applies to other vehicles besides the HHR. My 2003 Silverado had the door chimes fade down so I could barely hear them. The fix was to replace the radio (under warranty, fortunately...).

How can I disable the door chime which is triggered every time I open the Drivers door of of my 1996 Lincoln Continental?


Its sensing that there is a key in the ignition. You have to replace the switch in the ignition cylinder that senses a key is inserted. Or alternatively access a wiring diagram and cut the wire from the key sensor to eliminate it.

The door chime on my 2003 oldsmobile alero won't stop chiming even though the car is off and the doors are all closed.


It is probably the body control module. It thinks you left the lights on or door open with key in ignition.

My door chime wont stop ringing when the driver side door is open and the keys are out of the ignition. how can i fix this?


I just found out that the problem on our 1998 windstar was the chime switch attached to the ignition switch. This chime switch when dislodged will short and act as if the keys are still on when the door is open ( thus sounding off the alarm). I had a hunch that the problem was close to the steering wheel because the alarm would stop if I change the angle of the steering wheel a couple of notches up or down. I guess when i did that the chime switch that i'm pertaining to get reset to the right position and stops the alarm. when i opened up the steering wheel housing around the ignition , the chime switch fell, it had a blk wire I think, and I saw that the clips on it were kind of melted thus not sticking to its right position. I just had to remove the ignition switch for a while and replaced the chime switch with the help of a zip tie wrapped around it. then I placed every part back together and no chimes... also I did this all while the battery was disconnected because i needed the ignition switch to be in the on position to get it off the steering wheel. Good luck guys!

How to stop the key alarm that beeps constantly when the driver's door is open and keys in the ignition? I wish to diable.


This alarm was placed in the vehicle for the purpose of not leaving your keys in the ignition while getting out and locking the door.
If in fact you wish to disable this safety function (and possibly one day lock your keys in the vehicle) Look under the dash, drivers side, while the chime is activated. You should be able to locate where the beeping sound is coming from and unplug the chime.

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.

Ignition alarm will not stop 97 ford f150


The key switch usually breaks or wears out and makes contact. It is on the lock cylinder. This would cause the chime to not come on, or stay on. Sounds like the switch is bad.

1997 F-150/250 Warning Chime, Key-In-Ignition The key-in-ignition chime warns that the key is still in the ignition when the driver's door is ajar. The key-in-ignition warning chime will sound when:
  • GEM: Driver door is ajar, the ignition switch is in the OFF/LOCK or ACC position and the keys are in the ignition.
  • CTM: Driver door is ajar, the ignition switch is in the OFF/LOCK, ACC or RUN position and the keys are in the ignition.
The key-in-ignition warning chime will stop sounding when:
  • Driver door is closed.
  • Key is removed from the ignition.
  • GEM: Ignition switch is switched to the RUN position.
The key-in-ignition warning chime inputs are:
  • Ignition switch RUN position (battery potential on both RUN and RUN/ACC inputs).
  • Ignition switch ACC position (battery potential on RUN/ACC input only).
  • Key-in-ignition switch (grounded with key-in-ignition, open circuit with key-out).
  • LH door ajar switch (open circuit with door closed, grounded with door ajar).
This is a pic for a 98, could not find one for 97 which may be the older style which is more prone to break.
