    Door chime

    This is kinda odd. My door chime seems to be stuck on as of 2 days ago. IE, the car thinks the keys are still in ign. I've inserted, wiggled, removed and all combination of the above, it's still on. That's as far as I've gone with it.

    I guess I'll dig through my FSM this weekend. Anyone have any expierience with an issue like this? I've done ignition cyls (not on this car) before, but iirc, there isn't much there to fail. It's probably a stuck switch in there.

    It's not my fault, blame the radiation.

    Funny story!
    I had a few minutes to fiddle with it today. After jostling the cylinder by hand, and gently wiggling the key in/out and rotating it back and forth slowly and deliberately from extent to extent for a while with the door open chiming away, it fixed itself.

    So that pretty much confirms it's that switch wearing out. I guess I'll add that to the list of things I might fix, if it gets annoying enough.

    The chime module is in the center under the radio. Its a green box ( if i remember correctly). Not much to it. Its either good or its shit.

    I'll lube first (as one does), and see if that takes care of it.

    Chime module seems ok? It's functioning right, unless the occasional short is in the module I guess.

    Mine does this all the time, I banged on the cylinder earlier and got it to shut up for a few seconds, but then it came back on.

    Although now I have a bigger problem, I started the car earlier, it fired right up and ran fine but died after a few seconds and wouldn't restart. Now I have absolutely no ignition power, but I can hear the relay close when I turn the key to start. I'm not sure if I messed up the ignition switch by beating on the column, or if I tripped the security system somehow

    On the bright side, the damn chime shut up.

    That sounds like a passlock issue.

    That's what I thought, but I tried the whole turn the key to run, then off for 15min thing outlined in the manual twice. Also tried leaving the key on for like an hour, as well as disconnecting the battery.

    I've still got no power. Although my dog managed to break the plunger off the door switch earlier, have no clue where that went or if the fact that the car thinks the door is closed constantly has anything to do with it.

    Sorry, didn't know you have a 98...so my previous advise does not apply.
    Please refer to the thread you had started.
    Glad you found the blown fuse. Most people don't check those first and it can lead to a lot of wasted time.

    The sad thing is that I checked the fuses first yesterday, but completely forgot about the underhood fuse block. Only reason I thought of it today was because I opened the hood to disconnect the battery overnight.
