Tail lights All lights except for the tail lights will work. Also bell that warns of keys in ignition is weak sounding. Could the two be connected in some way? I am at my wits end trying to figure this out.

Engine takes a long time to start, 3 or 4 attempts. When switching on ignition warning lights turn off after a few seconds except oil and battery lights. Is this indicating a fault?


Maybe not.
Your warning lights go thru a test when you turn the key on so most would go off after a few seconds.
The delay to start could be a weak fuel pump which is allowing fuel pressure to drain back into the tank.

Tail lights not working, bell for lights left on or key in ignition sounds when exiting vehicle.


You have a problem with the loom ( the vehicle wiring system)

Why is my 2001 buick century custom dash lights, tail lights, cruise control not working and dinger is sounding don't know if it is ignition or head light dinger but stops when you close door


dinger is obviously your door open warning, problem 1 solved, dash and tail lights are often on the same circuit in many cars, this will need a new fuse, if this failed when replaced then you have a short, this normally happens in your tail lights

Head lights, door locks & inside lights quit working. brake lights & turn signals work. checked all fuses in box, all getting fire except tail lamp & accessories fuse. wat can i do


Sound to me like the ignition switch on the steering column, theres a rod from the key switch to the ignition switch which has four sections for various key positions, your sounds like the section that keeps power with the switch off lost connection or is burnt out, change the switch, they are cheap.

Ingition key will not turn


I had this problem and the fix was some type of trigger in the ingnition module was bent or out of place. This trigger is only to make a bell ring when doors are open and the key is in the ignition. What happens is the key doesnt fully engage with this trigger bent in the ignition module, therefore it will not turn. I had a locksmith come fish the trigger out and everything worked fine, except the warning bells. I've learned to live without them.

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.

Warning bell won't stop sounding


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).

Safety Belt Warning When the ignition switch 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 safety belt warning indicator lamp (10C859) will activate for 60 seconds or until the driver's safety belt is fastened. Both the chime and lamp activate at the same time.
Anytime the ignition switch is released from START and returns to RUN while the safety belt lamp or chime is activated, the safety belt warning lamp or chime will remain activated until either the timing sequence has been executed, or the safety belt is buckled.

Headlamp Switch On Warning The chime will be activated if the headlamps or parking lamps are ON, the key is not in the ignition and the driver's door is opened. The chime will sound at a rate of four per second.

Warning bell does not turn off


Probable bad switch, whether it's the ignition switch or light switch or other I'm not sure. I'd start by checking TSB's (Technical Service Bulletins) through Saturn; they shouldn't charge you to check their database for this problem. I know GM had the same problem. May also be the control module that interfaces all of these various warning systems with the main computer. Referred to a "body control module" or something similar.
