The bell will sound whenever a door switch is broken or its wiring is disconnected. Sometimes the door switches (which are located in the front of the door jamb, near the hinges) can fall inside because the plastic tab physically breaks off and then the system "thinks" the doors are open.

If the switches look secure, remove them from the doors, and with a voltmeter, check for a state change when pushing in on the switch with the wiring disconnected. No change, bad switch. If all four check OK, then the wiring to the door switches should be checked. The two primary connectors are underneath the driver's side bolster and passenger side kick panel. The lines terminate and connect here.

Assuming the warning is for the key in the ignition, the problem could be the sensor inside the steering lock cylinder.

While driving a bell ringing happens when i make a right turn. sometimes the bell rings continually while i'm driving. what the problem?


Sounds silly but this is how i fixed my bell ringing. !st the ringing is the alarm when you open the door and the key is in the ignition or the car is running. I found the push switches that are on the side of the car and are operated when the door is shut have become loose. All you need to do is tighten them up a bit and the bell ringing will stop. When you make your right turn you probably push a bit on the door and that helps open the switch more. The switches are the contact switches that turn on the light as well as the warning sensors for open door. See if your dome lights flicker a bit as well.

Warning bell is on when doors are opened, goes off when shut or ignition on, all lights off, doors shut, normal. open doors with ign. off and bell sounds


I'm assuming that the key is removed from the ignition and it's still chiming..
Take some lock lube spray and spray a bit in your ignition key slot. Then take the key and insert it in and out a few times. This may release a stuck contact in the ign. switch.
The chime will also sound if the lights are left on...worth a check too.
These are cheap fix/checks...hope they help.

Bell sound will not stop.


Hey Wizz,
Have you checked the "closed door" plungers?
My neighbor had the same problem. I found it to be the drivers side plunger. The plastic retaining ring had broken, leaving the curcuit open. Being two months later, I hope you have found it.
I drove it a half mile...... It was like Chinese water torture. AHHHHHHHHHHH!

Hope this helps.

Engine cut out while driving. Would turn over, no start.


If it were mine, I would check to see that there is fuel to the engine and the ignition system is working.
