1. Turn off the overhead over-ride switch. Drive again. Do the chimes stop? If yes, the door is not closing properly due to the door contacts. Clean them yourself or have them serviced.
2. If the chimes did not stop in step 1. above, it's not likely the door but rather something else.
3. Chimes occur for many reasons. Suggest checking - a. are the rear back-up warning sensors blocked/dirty? b. any other lights on the dash like oil, abs, airbag, etc? c. passenger side airbag disabled - something heavy placed in passenger seat?

In my experience, it's the automatic door contacts. We have a long history of problems with these auto doors, that are still not resolved. problems all throughout the warranty period, and now into the extended warranty period. We must unite and get GM to resolve the quality of these doors. My next step (next incident) is going to be to have the dealership inspect the entire wiring system.

Take your father down to the local pub and leave him there then take the car to an accredited auto electrician to have it fixed NO honestly this is the best idea as it will cost less eventually to have it fixed professionally

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 dash light indicates I have a door opened and a chime dings when I hit a bump. All the doors are closed.


Check the 2 contacts on the passenger sliding door. If the door is out of adjustment they will have poor contact and a bump will jar it and turn on the light and chime. Make sure the side door closes securely.

It may be trying to get your attention for an open door, trunk lid or other item requiring attention. Check your owner's manual for items that can cause it to chime.

The passenger side auto sliding door will not shut... it almost closes then opens a little. Dinger dings indicating that the door is open even when it is manually shut and override switch is on. No message...


this is a common issue with these. The door for some reason goes out of alignment and you will have to either adjust the striker or the door track or take it somewhere and have them do it.Its better to have someone else do it so they have to fix it right if they want paid..

I bought a 2005 Montana with only one remote


Posting the entire procedure if someone else doesnt have it.
The BCM Fuse you are looking for is actually the door lock fuse, or #1 fuse in the instrument panel fusebox. This fusebox can be found on the passenger side when you open up the door. Where the door and the dash meet, there is a panel that comes off and underneath is the fuse box. So pull that #1 fuse out.


Keep the windows open as a safety measure, then,
Remove the ignition key from the ignition lock cylinder.
Remove the BCM PRGRM fuse from the fuse panel. Refer to Fuse Block in Wiring Systems.
Close all of the doors.
Close the liftgate.
Turn the ignition lock cylinder to ACC.
Turn the ignition lock cylinder to OFF, and then back to ACC within 1 second.
Open and close any vehicle door. A chime will be heard when the system enters the BCM programming/diagnostic mode.
Important
After 7 seconds, a chime may be heard confirming successful synchronization. It is necessary to wait approximately
14 seconds for a second chime that will confirm successful programming.

Press and hold the transmitter LOCK and UNLOCK buttons simultaneously for 14 seconds.
Repeat the previous step on each additional transmitter to be programmed.
Remove the ignition key from the ignition lock cylinder.
Install the BCM PRGRM fuse back into the fuse panel. Refer to Fuse Block in Wiring Systems.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The confusion in this procedure when working with a Montana SV6 is that there is no fuse called the BCM PRGRM fuse. In the SV6, it is actually the door lock fuse, or #1 fuse in the instrument panel fusebox. This fusebox can be found on the passenger side when you open up the door. Where the door and the dash meet, there is a panel that comes off and underneath is the fuse box. So pull that #1 fuse out. Then I did the ACC steps after closing all doors, but I never heard a chime signaling the start of the reprogramming step. Since I didnt hear a chime, I just held down the two lock buttons on the remote keychain for at least 14 seconds, and when that was done, I could push the lock buttons and see that the parking lights would flash. So then I held down the two lock keys on my other keychain and programmed
that one too. That's it! Turn the car off put the fuse back in, and roll up the windows.

Ok, so there is the procedure I used and everything works great! Hope it helps someone
