    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.

Worn out key cylinder or ignition switch. Cant tell when key is off. There is a wire which as you put in the key it makes contact as the the key pushes this metal contact up. You can unplug it. It should be a blue wire you should be able to see once you remove the covers of the colomn.

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.

How do I disconnect the warning chime?


Key in ignition chime ?
Saturn L-Series ?????? L what ? L100 ,L200 , L300
Audible Warnings
The body control module (BCM) will provide an audible warning for various events relating to the vehicle. The functions that provide an audible warning are the key in ignition, the lights on, the occupant restraint (seat belt) and the park brake.
Key in the Ignition Audible Chime
The BCM will provide an audible chime if the key is left in the ignition in either OFF or the accessory position with the driver's door open. The chime rate for this is 150 chimes per minute. The key in the ignition chime has a higher priority than the lights on chime.
Lights on Audible Chime
The BCM will provide an audible chime if the park lights are on and the driver's door is open. In addition, 1 or 2 other conditions exist. The key is out of the ignition, or the key is in the ignition in the OFF position, and has not been turned. The BCM will chime at a rate of 200 chimes per minute until the conditions are removed.
Occupant Restraint Audible Chime
The BCM will provide an audible chime based on the class II message received from the SDM if the driver's seat belt is not buckled when the ignition is turned to run or crank. The chime rate for this feature is 50 chimes per minute.
Park Brake Audible Chime
The BCM will provide an audible chime for park brake when the park brake is applied and the vehicle speed is higher that 3 mph. The chime rate for this feature is 200 chimes per minute.

You can't disconnect anything . The problem has to be fixed .

Telltale Chimes
The body control module (BCM) will provide 4 chimes for each telltale activation per ignition cycle, at a rate of 150 or 200 chimes per minute. The chimes are limited to 1 chime event per telltale for each ignition cycle. The power up telltale function will not activate the telltale chime function. If the telltale becomes active during a cycle then the chime will sound.
The following telltales will activate the chime function:
• Low Washer Fluid
• Change Oil Soon Indicator
• Brake Fluid Low
• Oil Pressure Low
• Coolant Temperature Hot
• Low Coolant Level
• Low Fuel Level
• Antilock Brake System
• Volts Light (Generator)
• Supplemental Inflatable Restraint System (Air Bag)
• Trunk or Hatch Ajar

Having the vehicle checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's in the BCM would be the first step in the diagnostic procedure .
DTC B2965
When the ignition key is seated in the ignition switch, the key-in-ignition switch contacts the close, grounding circuit 80. The body control module (BCM) monitors the state of the key-in-ignition switch, the state of the ignition switch (OFF, ACC, or RUN) and the driver's door to control the key-in-ignition chime.

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
