    Most likely cause is a faulty ignition switch. Does the chime sound similar to when you just have the key in the ignition when you have a door open?

SOURCE: dead battery---key chime---no horn on lock

Thanks for your help Gerred.
I ended up taking the car into the dealer last week and they found a "broken switch" in the drivers door. This was causing a very slight drain on the battery that over time would drain it, it also made the car think the drivers door was open, this explains the constant chime as well as the horn not honking when using the remote to lock the doors.
The total bill was about $110.00 including the labor and switch. Not to painfull I thought.

There is not a Fuse for this. Look at the Panel under the Dash on the Drivers Side. At the top there are 2 Boxes or Cicles. The one on the Left should be the Buzzer Relay Box.

SOURCE: Chime does not work when opening the door after the car is shut off and also when the running lights are left on after the car is shut off. Chime does work however for a brief second when turning on

There is a switch in the latch of your door which is broken. They used to use easily replaceable plunger switches now they have incorporated the switch into the door lock latch mechanism making it more expensive than necessary. I had same problem. You probably also set off your alarm quite frequently as well. If you shut off your car and try to start it after 30 seconds the alarm sounds, it did in my case. Luckily, I had purchased one of those extended warranties as my car was used. I still had to pay $100 but I think the switch is just over $120 this for me covered labor as well.

7 dings and a beep when starting 2000 ford explorer? what does that mean


NOTE: The generic electronic module/central timer module (GEM/CTM) is connected to the ISO link and is diagnosed through the data link connector (DLC) with a scan tool.
There are five warning chimes and lamps the GEM/CTM controls: headlamps operating without the ignition on (chime only), door ajar (chime and lamp), key-in-ignition (chime only), driver seat belt warning (chime and lamp), and message center.


Audible Warnings Warning Condition Lamp Duration Audible Duration Audible Output Safety Belt 60 Seconds 6 Seconds Chime, 60/Min. 740 Hz Key In Ignition - Continuous Chime, 120/Min. 740 Hz Headlamps On - Continuous Chime, 240/Min. 740 Hz Door Ajar Continuous 1 Second Single Tone, 1000 Hz Message Center (Tone Request) - 1 Second Single Tone, 1000 Hz
When the 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 will turn on for 60 seconds or until the driver safety belt is fastened. Both the chime and the lamp turn on at the same time.
If the safety belt is buckled before the ignition switch is turned to RUN or START, from OFF or ACC, neither the chime nor lamp will be activated.
Anytime the 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.
When at least one door is ajar and the key is in the RUN position, the door ajar cluster lamp is activated and remains on until all doors are closed. A warning tone will sound once any time the key is in the ignition switch and any door is open.
The key-in-ignition warning will sound when the driver side is opened with the key in the and the in OFF or ACC. It will continue to sound until the key is removed, the is closed, or the is in RUN or START.
The headlamp-on reminder chime will be activated if the headlamps or parking lamps are on, the key is not in the ignition switch, and the driver door is opened.
A single tone will be provided each time a ground signal is received from the message center. A one-second tone will sound for warning indications from the message center. A 100 milli-second tone will sound for each message center button depressed.

Chimes whenever the drivers door is open, even if the key is out. It is also really loud, want to turn the chime down also


My van chimes also with the key out. I think it is a reminder to lock the car as you leave. I don't see any way to reduce the volume.

Well if the ABS light is still on when you turn the car off you might want to check the brakes especially if you have drums in the back. check the oil level too. also the oil pressure guage might be bad along with the abs sensor.

The headlight switch turns on the courtesy light when twisted. Tell her to make sure that the headlight switch is twisted off the indent. If this isn't it, it may be the body control module.

Is there any way I can turn off the low fuel warning chime on my 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee? The dealer wants $100 to do this.


This chime is also the same chime used for the doors. To remove this you will also be losing the ignition chime when the keys are in the ignition or when the doors open.
It can be removed simply by unplugging it. Just open the door with the keys in the ignition, look under the dash on the driver or passenger side. using you good hearing locate the chime and simply disconnect the plug from the back.

If You Are Talking About The Door Chime There Are Two Ways To Do It One Is To Simply Unplug the Chime Two Is To Remove The Steering Columm cover and Unplug the black wire that is going to the side of the key switch I would Recommend This Method Because Unpluging The Chime Its Self Will Disable the Headlight on Switch off Warning As Well Removing The wire From Switch on column will disable key in switch door open only

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.
