Door Chime Won't Shut Off
Just got my 97 Sc300 N/A... and I noticed the dome light was out along with the personal lights, and anti-theft deterrent system. I checked my fuse box and saw Fuse 22 was completely missing. I went and bought the correct 10 Amp Fuse (ATC) to match the original, installed it, and everything was working again (I love cheap fixes).
However, I got home and went to shut my car door and when I did the door chime kept going off even when locked. So I tested to make sure I wasn't just being an idiot and it just kept chiming even when the theft deterrent system was set and all doors locked, hood, trunk, etc. I then went and replaced Fuse 21 for "DOOR" (Type A 30 Amp fuse) and it made no difference. I checked the other fuses and everything is operable and not blown or anything.
So the previous owner just took the fuse out when the short became apparent and said F*** it. Cheap Bastard.
I have never worked on cars before, as much as I would love to quit my job and do so I can't, so damn tempting sometimes. I never go beyond my knowledge and experience because that's when I become a dangerous *******. lol.
Any Ideas on whether this is a wiring problem or has anyone had this similar issue?
