    you need to remove the BCM ( body control module ) it is in the trunk on the electronic control panel at the frount of the trunk on the right side, find the B plug in ( it will be marked on the plug ) find termanal # B11 ( black wire ) and termanal # B12 ( purpal/white wire ) cut both wires and wire togather this should turn off the chime.

It's called 'The seven year itch', just a year late. You just don't ring your car's chimes anymore.

Why does vehicle ding five times with no warning lights showing?


If you have bad impact detection sensors (under the seats...little yellow bulbs) then you get the chimes.Those 'little impact sensors' are about $135 for both, and normally go bad after a collision impact. Body shops that cut corners don't replace them...but if not, then you end up with the airbag on light, and the chime. If you take out the air bag on light in the instrument cluster, you still get the chimer thingy...and every 20-minutes of driving, it will cycle through again. Please rate my answer so I get points for it.

You weren't low on gas - your fuel tank sending unit is failing and needs replacement. It's inside the tank and usually can be replaced without replacing the fuel pump as well - don't get suckered into that.
