Sounds like the ignition switch is shorting out or it has an ignition ground problem. try wiggling the key when it does next time and see what happens.

I have a 99 cavalier and the "dinger" ,that sounds when the seat belt light comes on, is constantly going off. Sometimes it is steady with a few seconds between. Other times the "dings" come one right...


Does it ding with the seat belt latched ? if so you probably need a Multifunction Alarm Module or have a shorted wire . Was the vehicle in an accident ?

Ignition switch. This will cause all those problems. Turn it off, the gauges go blank/dead. Leave the lights on and remove the key, what happens..

Key dinger


This is what just ran through my mind. You are tricked into thinking that the brakes lights didn't have a fuse, because they wasn't working. That fuse your replaced was for your chime, which is probably bad, so someone removed the fuse for it. The reason that your brakes lights dont' work could be 1 of 2 things. You do have a bad fuse, you just have to find it. If your brakes used to work, the fuse is not just going to fall out. Check all your fuses, but don't get them mixed up. The second most common this to cause this, is the small switch that sits behind your dash, up on the top of your brake pedal lever. You can see it from looking up from the floorboard area. Hope this helps!

My brake light is on and it keeps ding ding dinging and its very anoying because the E-brake is off. my problem is i lost the cover for my fuse box under the dash, so i dont know what one to pull to stop...


First, do not attempt to bypass a safety related issue by pulling a fuse. The brake light and alarm signal is performing it's designed function by indicating a fault that needs to be corrected.

Check the brake system completely. The Brake fluid level sensor could be low. Now rather than just add fluid, keep in mind that the level may be low because the brakes are worn. Worn pads & shoes cause the calipers to extend which requires additional fluid, causing a "low" fluid level.

Also check to ensure the ABS sensors are OK.

under the dash at the E brake there will be a single wire should be TAN with a WHITE tracer (stripe) and a black connector disconnect that and the dinging should stop then you can replace that switch that you just disconnected
hope this helps

01 Cavalier no lights


The ding noise is getting your attention the daytime running light flashing is saying no daytime running light are working.
Check engine means no headlights.
Check fuses
check to see if the headlights are plugged in.
