I am having trouble with my overhead console and my chime module and not sure if the two issues are related. First, my chime module will continuously tone after the four intermittent beeps during starting. Sometimes I have found that by wiggling a few groups of wires it will stop. Also if I wiggle some wires in the overhead console it stops. The console also doesnt always display the temp/and direction after starting. Sometimes the tone stops and the console comes back on after a few minutes of driving I have tried to do some investigative work on my own. I have tried checking wires under the dash to see if they are cut or disconnected some how and cant find any evidence of that. I have also unhooked the overhead console to check for wiring issues there and can't find any. Also, everything else electrically seems to be working ( no door lock, window, instrument, temperature control, etc troubles at this time). I have not been able to disconnect the chime module to check for problems there, as I need to find a long enough screw driver to hold down the tab securing it in place so that I can unplug it.
The motor does need a rebuild as I have low compression in two pistons which is causing a misfiring issue. This causes the car to vibrate of iourse, so I initially thought that maybe a wire has come loose somehwere.
Does my overhead console not coming on right away have anything to do with the chime module having a constant tone? Would it be the module itself? A wiring issue? Faulty body control module?
have the same problem?
