Okay, so I replace the "courtesy sensor" in my door (which was a *****) and the damn chime is STILL CHIMING!!!!!! I think it has something to do with the sunroof sensor now (the switch that opens and closes the roof). I drove the car the other day and went through the touch free car wash and as I pulled out, a whole bunch of water came from the area where the switch/lights are on the roof. So i'm HOPING that by replacing this switch, it will solve the problem of THE CHIME. . .

It's interesting that you, the OP, and I all have 97 SC300s in FL with the same problem. Anywho... Isn't the sunroof chime just 4 chimes and then it stops. Also, I thought only earlier model SCs had a sunroof chime?

I pulled the dome fuse as a temporary fix but i'm without power locks and other conveniences.

I just fixed this today. It was the "relay integration" box that is attached to the fuse block in the driver's side footwell. The link above has more info on how to find it.

I just pulled out the box but I dont see anything wrong with it. Is there anyway to test these things?

SOLID300 I still have my relay integration box I bought BRAND NEW from Lexus for some unGodly amount of money (I think it was $250)...Anyway, I sold my SC before I had a chance to install it but if you wanna buy it, you're welcome to it. Ive been meaning to throw it up in the for sale section for a few months now. Anyway, PM me if you're interested.

I still have this integration box brand new. I've been through 4 more SC's since this one (all 99's and 2000's) and none have had this issue. Even one SC I bought from VA that had 234K miles on it w/ no chime. I couldn't figure that out. My original car (the '97) has been bought and sold 3 or 4 times over since I sold it and I don't know that that problem was ever sorted out.
