Door Chime Always

2004 v6. First mustang bought 1 week ago.
The door chimes whenever I open the door. Is that normal behavior.
I'm ok with chimes for leaving lights on or keys in ignition but this doesn't seem right.

It is just the standard ford key anti-theft system. suspicious that ignition lock cylinder may have been changed since ignition key doesn't work in trunk or driver door but that could also be corosion.

Re: Door Chime Always

hmm you may be on to something since the key doesnt work in the trunk key (but it could also be that the trunk is different or has been replaced as well)

It shouldnt ding with the key out of the ignition. If you turn your headlights on and open the door with the key in the ignition its a normal ding if I remember right but when you pull the key out it gets faster, see if that still works... at least I think thats how its supposed to work.

Re: Door Chime Always

spectorv is right.

with door open and no key in the ignition- no chime.

with door open with key in ignition- chime.

with lights on, car turned off, door open, key in ignition-chime

with lights on, car turned off, door open, key out of ignition- faster chime.

as per the behavior of my own 04 V6.

Re: Door Chime Always

It looks like the door being open in all those situations results in a fast chime independent of lights and key.
I get a slow chime when I turn the ignition to on but do not start the car with the door either open or closed.
