The alternator might be bad or the belt tensioner. This will cause the lights to go on & the ringing is probably the tensioner.

I own a 2006 trailblazer LT the electrical controls on the driver's side are dead and the door bell does not ring and the interior lights do not come on. I can not control nothing by my door controls. ...

It is possible that the connections got loose or was disconnected. Inspect also the fuses for the nonworking items. If none of the fuses are blown you will have to inspect the controls on the driver side. You would need screw drivers including a flat one to pry open the panel. Cover the flathead scew driver with a rag to avoid scratches.

Below is a link for an 07 trailblazer. The 06 and the 07 share the same wiring system.

My2000 VW bug makes a high pitched noise when i try to start it. All my lights and radio still come on, but I cannot get the engine to start.

This could be a bad starter solenoid just spinning and not retracting forward or backward. A solenoid is similar to an electric door bell. When electricity is applied through a coil of copper wire it becomes an electro-magnet pushing an arm to hit a bell.
The solenoid engages a small spinning starter gear forward onto the flywheel ring gear so it would crank and start the engine. When that stage is complete, the starter gear should retract back to it's default position via spring tension as soon as you release the key from the start position, away from the spinning flywheel. It could be that it's just spinning in place and not hooking up with the flywheel causing a no start scenario.

Idiot oil light is ringing its bell non stop.... driving me crazy

The oil light is an indicator of oil pressure, not oil level. If it is chiming all the time now, it means that your engine likely has an oiling issue, such as a failing oil pump.

Get the vehicle checked out immediately before you cause irreversible damage that requires a replacement engine or an entirely new car.

Warning bell does not turn off

Probable bad switch, whether it's the ignition switch or light switch or other I'm not sure. I'd start by checking TSB's (Technical Service Bulletins) through Saturn; they shouldn't charge you to check their database for this problem. I know GM had the same problem. May also be the control module that interfaces all of these various warning systems with the main computer. Referred to a "body control module" or something similar.
