  1. disconnect your negative battery connection
  2. open the left forward side of console(drivers side) right were it meets the firewall and pull its forward edge out. Behind there is the chime module and turn signal flasher.
  3. there is a latch on the bottom of the Chime module that you will release gently with a screw driver while pulling out on the orange module to release it from its electrical connection.
  4. replace the malfunctioning chime module with a good one. You will hear a click as it seats back in place.

Where is chime module located on 2005 ford taurus


There is no chime module ,there is a speaker inside the instrument cluster.
Door Ajar Chime
The door ajar chime feature is controlled by the smart junction box (SJB). The driver and passenger door ajar switches, and the liftgate are hardwired to the SJB. If any door or liftgate is sensed as being open, and the ignition switch is in RUN/START position, the SJB will process the input and sends a chime request to the instrument cluster over the controller area network (CAN).
Safety Belt Warning Chime
The safety belt chime feature is controlled by the restraints control module (RCM). The driver safety belt switch is hardwired to the RCM. The RCM communicates with the instrument cluster over a hardwire connection. If at any time during the first 6 seconds after the ignition switch is placed in RUN the driver safety belt is sensed as being unfastened, the RCM will process the input, and in turn, sends a chime request to the instrument cluster.
Have the vehicle checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes ,not OBD 2 codes , the check engine light has nothing to do with this .
Instrument Cluster Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index DTC Description Source Action B1342 Instrument Cluster is Defective Instrument Cluster INSTALL a new instrument cluster. REFER to Section 413-01 . B1352 Ignition Key-In Circuit Failure Instrument Cluster Go To Pinpoint Test B . B2477 Module Configuration Failure Instrument Cluster REFER to Section 413-01 .

How to Eliminate annoying Intermittent Warning Chimes from a 1994 Continental Instrument Cluster?


This is the simplest & easiest fix, to make your '94 Cont. drivable, without having to listen to incessant CHIMES beeping every five minutes, due to faulty sensors and electrical glitches from the junk message system. Go under the dash, on the right side of the steering column and remove the plug (10 wires) from the 'warning chime module.' There is a tan/yellow wire in that plug on pin #7--that is the "tone generator" wire. CUT IT.!!! Now, when all of those faulty inputs try to get to the warning chime module--they CAN'T! Problem solved--no more beeping. This does not disrupt the chime from sounding if you open the door with your keys in the ignition, or with the lights still on--it continues to protects you from THAT. Remember to watch your OWN coolant & oil levels--to make sure no REAL problems exist--and you're good to go!

Courtesy Chime Chime Chime will not shut off. What do I have to do to troubleshoot the GEM Module and whatever is connected to/through it?


If the chime includes the cab light staying on as well:
There is a door switch in both the driver and passenger side doors that needs attention. I too had this problem. Solution: squirt wd40 onto the switch located near the door latch on both driver and passenger side.

HOW DO YOU SILENCE A CHIME WORNING BELL?


There is a BLACK/PINK thin wire going up into steering column. Cut that to silence the chime when your key is in the ignition. Or before doing that locate the chime module under your dash (just follow the sound) and unplug the module from the connector and that will do it.

Does the bcm control the alarm in a 2006 monte Carlo? I can't seem to get the alarm to go off. I've also noticed that I have no chime and turn signal sounds. I just recently purchased this car and...


The no chime and turn signal has nothing to do with the alarm. You have a issue with power supply to turn flasher and door chime. The alarm consist of The door ajar switch,body control module,front door lock switch,power door lock switch. You need to check your fuse for turn signal and the door chime

  • Headlamp-on warning is four chimes per second.
  • Door ajar warning is a single chime.

1994 devilles flasher location


Turn signal flasher module is behind dash left of steering column near chime module. I have a 94 Seville and I had that same problem you need a Turn Signal Flasher Moduel, I forgot the proper term for it but I had to get mine replaced too. When I hit the signals to turn the side light would come on but the signal light wouldn't. Its a little box you get from Cadillac it only cost like $20 - $25 and you get it installed and trust. It'll work again. I just got mine done this week and my car now has turn signals again.
