Question about 1993 Volvo 240

The power lock drivers side is stuck in the locked position on my 1993 Volvo 240. When pulled up or depressed the chime sounds. Help, I am too old to be crawling across seats or in and out of windows!

    After following every troubleshooting tip I could find without success, I found a swift kick to the driver's side door did the trick. Still love my wagon!!

The warning chime on my 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee continues chiming when the door is closed and the key is in the first position from off. I tow this unit behind a motor home and need to leave the key in...


The chime is active because the sensor on one of the doors keeps reporting it as open - this is a defect in the sensor, located inside the actual lock. You cannot disable the chime, it's an integral part of the Body Control Module. To fix that the door will have to be dismantled and the sensor replaced, a job for a repair shop.
Until you reach one you can disconnect the battery and lock the doors manually.

Location of door chimes module chimes wont stop and the aut door locks lock it back when i unlock it


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.

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.

Driver's side door power locks are stuck; door stuck shut.


sounds like the rods are disconnected the clips hold the rods in place the latching mechanism holds the handle in place as well did you replace the speakers or did a shop? if a shop did then they caused this if you did then you may have caused this either way untill you reattach the rods none of it will work. you will have to manually open the door at the latch from inside teh door behind the panel.
