Changed battery terminals and now dinging wont stop unless warning light fuse removed

It sounds like it thinks the key is still in it all the time. Try turning the key forward to the on position, but not running, so the dinging stops. disconnect the battery. Remove the key completely and reconnect the battery.

There is a dinging noise when i open my door after removing the key

The key chime in ignition cylinder is shorting out against the steering column. Turn key on, take a very thin long pin and at the underside of the steering column cover there's a small hole, push pin until you feel a metal tab pushing up,pull out the cylinder. You will see a little metal tab pushed up against the ignition cylinder wall.the plastic piece that keeps it in place is probably broken. You can put a piece of electrical tape on it and be done with it, but chime won't work at all, the down side of this....the only eay to replace that key chime id to buy the clockspring, around $250 plus labor, steering wheel has to be removed. ..

My radio wont shut off and the door keeps dinging after key is removed

This is usually a case of a broken wire in the driver's side door sill, on the New Body Style 2004 ( not a lightning or Heritage ).

Pop the door sill cover up, and you are looking for a purple or blue w/ white stripe wire where 3 wires are spliced. The splice tape looks like hockey tape, so water can still get in.

Here are 2 pictures of the broken wire locations

The tape carrage wont load the tapes but it will go into the load position without.

I have a sony cam myself. If the cam is empty, you open the outer door(swings out), and the load/unload mechanism rises up and pops open allowing tape insertion. When a cassette is placed into the mechanism, you press where it says "push" and then the drive pulls the tape down and into the unit. Then the outer door is closed and you're ready to tape. IF YOU PUSH DOWN ON THE TAPE WHILE IT'S BEING PULLED INTO THE UNIT IT WILL STRIP GEARS INSIDE. The gears are made of nylon to prevent serious damage to motors and other circuitry. This transport setup cannot be forced at all. If any type of mis-alignment occurs, the mechanism is supposed to stop and back up--allowing the problem to be corrected. If it is damaged, the cam must be repaired. There is critical timing involved in replacing the tape carriage.---Rick
