The door chime won't stop after you take out the key and open the door, in fact it chimes faster. I also have no rear lights & the auto lights on stopped working. I have replaced the main light switch.

SOURCE: location of door chimes module

one of the doors is not closed completely or...... the button is stuck in the depressed position. try each door one at a time, shut each firmly and check the result or................ look inside the door frame when the door is open to see if the button is popped out(there is a button that looks like a stem in the door jam towards the hinge end of the door). if you find one that is stuck (pushed in as if the door was closed) then pop it out with your finger or small screw driver and then lubricate it with a few drops of oil.

SOURCE: 2007 HHR Radio and chimes not working

Check the radio fuse. As unusual as it seems, GM has started having the radio (even though not turned on) generate the chimes and turn signal sounds. If the radio fails, all the chimes fail too.

This applies to other vehicles besides the HHR. My 2003 Silverado had the door chimes fade down so I could barely hear them. The fix was to replace the radio (under warranty, fortunately...).

The problem is likely a bad switch in said door. If you can't fix it now, crawl under the dash, find the chime (should be easy..ding..ding), and unplug it. Please rate me. Thanks

The door chime on my 2003 oldsmobile alero won't stop chiming even though the car is off and the doors are all closed.


It is probably the body control module. It thinks you left the lights on or door open with key in ignition.

The chime stopped working if I leave my key in or the lights on. The radio works. I wonder which fuse might control this. That sounds like the first place to look. What else should I look for?


First you did not mention trim level or what radio you have asuming you have a RDS radio system since you mentioned your radio did in fact work that gives me the impression you do nt have a WT or base model. If in fact you have a RDS radio the chime only chimes on the one driverside speaker (large one in door not the tweeter) See if that speaker is opperational. If it is opperational and you have the controlls on the steering wheel locate your owners manual and see how to enable the chimes or disable the chime. You or someone may have disabled the chime. Try these two posibilities if they dont work resubmit and I will look into problem farther, it may be in the radio itself.

Open door chimes and keys left in in car chimes plus left on chimes not working question what operates chimes door lock ?


Door left open chime is operated by your interior light switch. It is located in a few places on different vehicles. Often in the door jam at the front or low down on the pillar at the rear of the door. You will notice a little black rubber boot and when you push it it goes in and out. That is your interior light switch.

My 2000 ford explorer is having issues with the door alarm and interior lights remaining on even though the door is shut.Any advice is great.Cheers.


Go sit in your truck and close all the doors. Light stays on right? Put your key in the ignition. Does the chime start going off when you put the key in? If so, door switch or the GEM thinks a door is open.

To find out which door... Leave the key in the ingntion. Turn to the on position. Even with doors closed, chime sounds once after a few seconds and door ajar light comes on and stays on right? Open each door one by one. The chime should sound each time you open a door. When you find the door that doesn't make the chime sound when you open it, that is the problem. (Don't forget to try the rear hatch and the hatch glass also!) To determine if the switch is bad or if the GEM is having a problem thinking the door is open, just unplug the suspected switch, close all the doors, and see if the problem stops. (don't forget to wait a second to give the lights time to go off) If unplugging the switch solves it, the replace it. If it doesn't, Ford can check your GEM to see if it is the problem.

I hope this helps

Door chime will not go off..chimes all the time............


You probably need to remove the door pin switch, clean the rust or paint off of the area where it has to make contact & reinstall. This is a ground (-) switch that completes the circuit to the chime once grounded. (door closed) Make a quick check of all doors & be sure one of these hasn't been broken.

When you close the door does the dome light turn off? You may have 2 pins, one controls the dome & one the door signal/alarm, or they may be combined. (even similar models at times have small differences) A visual inspection should reveal the answer to this. If you're not familiar, the pins are located under a small rubber button & normally are held in with 1 screw once the rubber part is carefully removed. Once you've removed this & cleaned the area for contact, use dielectric grease, or some lubricant to seal the area once connected again. You should be able to leave the door open, push in on the button with the key in the ignition & the chime should stop. The chime can't complete the circuit if the soor switch is working properly with the door closed & if it is working then would be defective.
Good luck

Possible ignition switch problem? 99 Explorer


key chime sounds if the little tab is grounded where the key contacts it. The theft light is supposed to blink when the system is armed to let you know it is armed. That's normal.

What do you mean by auto door locks won't unlock? The remote doesn't work? the door lock/unlock button on the door trim panel? Do they lock ok? Or, just unlock doesn't work?

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 New Generation STAR (NGS) Tester.
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.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
  1. NOTE: The generic electronic module (GEM)/central timer module (CTM) must be reconfigured upon replacement. Refer to the New Generation STAR (NGS) Tester help screen on the configuration card to program the Tire Size, Axle Ratio.
    The power windows system and rear window defroster system are (GEM) controlled systems.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  • All Windows Operate With the Ignition in the OFF Position
  • Circuitry.
  • Accessory delay relay.
  • CHECK the accessory delay relay; REFER to Component Test. If OK, REPAIR circuit 400 (LB/BK). If not OK, REPLACE the accessory delay relay. TEST the system for normal operation.

Section 13-09: Gauges, Warning Devices — Chime System 1996 Windstar Workshop Manual
DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION Warning Chime Systems Three distinct sounds are used to indicate the area of concern. Seat belt warning generates 1 chime per second
key-in-ignition generates 2 chimes per second
headlight on generates 4 chimes per second.
Key-In-Ignition Warning The key-in-ignition warning will sound when the driver's front door (20125) is opened with the key in the ignition switch. 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).
