I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee. warning chime comes on at odd times while driving. Interior lights stay on when doors closed, console reports passenger door oper or hood oper when they are closed


scaN IT?
SEE what doors are failing.

if cant do that
you have to test each switch,
each door switch goes to the BCM brain
only scanning it finds the bad one, unless its fut to remove all switches 1 by one and expect them all, not.

see WJ here,
click wiring thieft,
see 8w-39 pg 4-7 bingo.

be not fun to short each sensor 1 by 1 to find the bad one
my guess is JEEPS scanner can do this.
my jeep WK
does B1801 codes. in sequence
to B1851 (huge list) all switches even sun ROOF.

How do I eliminate the beeping noise that occurs even when I'm driving?


Is there a door ajar light on? How about a seatbelt light on? These will cause the chime to sound. Possible door switch causing issue. You can unplug the chime module from under the dash. Listen for the noise to locate it and unplug it.

Camry door chime stays on, door ajar light goes off as normal


Could be the sensor in the key switch telling you the key is still in the lock.

1998 escort zx2 dome light stays on when switch is set for door; all other indicators, chime for key in ignition etc seem OK. Light works normally in switch on and off positions.


It should stay on for about 30 seconds and go off. Otherwise, the car is 11 years old, so find a switch position which does not drain the battery.

THERE IS A BEEPING NOISE THAT STARTS AFTER DRIVING IN MY 2000


Here are the warnings:

The generic electronic module (GEM) controls the following warnings and chimes:
  • Driver safety belt not fastened (warning lamp and repetitive chime).
  • Key-in-ignition (repetitive chime).
  • Headlamp-on warning (repetitive chime).
  • Door ajar (warning lamp and single tone).
The following four distinct chime rates are used to indicate warning:
  • Seat belt warning chime is one chime per second.
  • Key-in-ignition warning is two chimes per second.
  • Headlamp-on warning is four chimes per second.
  • Door ajar warning is a single chime.
please rate as solved if this is what you needed.

91 toyota camry door ajar light stays on along with the chime


Probably a faulty door switch. Are you familiar with what I'm talking about. Little push like switches that the doors push on as they close, usually on door post by latch end, or sometimes in jamb of door at hinge end.

Warning chime continues to chime as I drive


My guess is a faulty switch at door for turning off interior lights/door closed, which is giving chime that door is still open
