It could be the selector switch assm, or the main board is out, it happens when the power fluctuates or someone playing with the buttons while the unit is in operating mode.LG's are very very sensitive. if you have a multi meter check if you have the correct voltage feeding the unit. either 110 or 220.............

try and find out the part number for the selector board and the main board assm.

How can I get my seat belt chime to work? The light on the dash works. Should I be looking fr a fuse?

The chime is normally a small looking relay in the fuse panel assembly under the dash. Is your light coming off when you insert your buckle? If it does, your chime is bad and needs replaced if you want to hear it. Sorry I couldnt be more help, try buying a junkyard chime to test or if you have a volt tester check for power and ground circuits at the chime junction location. The chime like I said looks like a relay but has a tiny plastic speaker inside it.

Audible Warnings
The body control module (BCM) will provide an audible warning for various events relating to the vehicle. The functions that provide an audible warning are the key in ignition, the lights on, the occupant restraint (seat belt) and the park brake.
Key in the Ignition Audible Chime
The BCM will provide an audible chime if the key is left in the ignition in either OFF or the accessory position with the driver's door open. The chime rate for this is 150 chimes per minute. The key in the ignition chime has a higher priority than the lights on chime.
Lights on Audible Chime
The BCM will provide an audible chime if the park lights are on and the driver's door is open. In addition, 1 or 2 other conditions exist. The key is out of the ignition, or the key is in the ignition in the OFF position, and has not been turned. The BCM will chime at a rate of 200 chimes per minute until the conditions are removed.
Occupant Restraint Audible Chime
The BCM will provide an audible chime based on the class II message received from the SDM if the driver's seat belt is not buckled when the ignition is turned to run or crank. The chime rate for this feature is 50 chimes per minute.
Park Brake Audible Chime
The BCM will provide an audible chime for park brake when the park brake is applied and the vehicle speed is higher that 3 mph. The chime rate for this feature is 200 chimes per minute.

You can't disconnect anything . The problem has to be fixed .

Content Theft Pre-Alarm Audible Chime
Telltale Chimes
The body control module (BCM) will provide 4 chimes for each telltale activation per ignition cycle, at a rate of 150 or 200 chimes per minute. The chimes are limited to 1 chime event per telltale for each ignition cycle. The power up telltale function will not activate the telltale chime function. If the telltale becomes active during a cycle then the chime will sound.
The following telltales will activate the chime function:
• Low Washer Fluid
• Change Oil Soon Indicator
• Brake Fluid Low
• Oil Pressure Low
• Coolant Temperature Hot
• Low Coolant Level
• Low Fuel Level
• Antilock Brake System
• Volts Light (Generator)
• Supplemental Inflatable Restraint System (Air Bag)
• Trunk or Hatch Ajar

Having the vehicle checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's in the BCM would be the first step in the diagnostic procedure .
DTC B2965
When the ignition key is seated in the ignition switch, the key-in-ignition switch contacts the close, grounding circuit 80. The body control module (BCM) monitors the state of the key-in-ignition switch, the state of the ignition switch (OFF, ACC, or RUN) and the driver's door to control the key-in-ignition chime.

The chime stopped working if I leave my key in or the lights on. The radio works. I wonder which fuse might control this. That sounds like the first place to look. What else should I look for?

First you did not mention trim level or what radio you have asuming you have a RDS radio system since you mentioned your radio did in fact work that gives me the impression you do nt have a WT or base model. If in fact you have a RDS radio the chime only chimes on the one driverside speaker (large one in door not the tweeter) See if that speaker is opperational. If it is opperational and you have the controlls on the steering wheel locate your owners manual and see how to enable the chimes or disable the chime. You or someone may have disabled the chime. Try these two posibilities if they dont work resubmit and I will look into problem farther, it may be in the radio itself.

Have had major snow storms in the past few weeks. Installed, prior to storms, new door chimes that worked. Since the storms, neither the front nor side bells function. The bell button has a light on...

Most times, doorbell problems are button, especially since indicator light shows you have power.
Take off front doorbell button and see two wires.
These wires are low voltage and safe to touch.
Use screwdriver and touch both screws together, or remove wires from button and then touch two wires together.
If doorbell rings, then replace button.

If bell still doesn't work then scratch two wires together and look for static-type spark that says wires have power.
If wires have power, and you crossed both wires and bell didn't work, then new door chime is suspect.

If wires do not have power, then transformer is suspect.
Open following link to see example transformer:
Transformers are located in basement or attic.
Scratch a wire across both screws on transformer and look for static-like spark.
If no power, then check circuit breaker.
Home centers sell transformers in the doorbell section. They are 12 and 24 volt. Check markings on old transformer.

If transformer has power, then new door chime is suspect.

Also take advantage of fixya phone service.

Unplug the unit to reset the computer.  Wait 5 minutes.  If the problem still occurs, you will need to have the control board replaced.
