'93 Saturn Door Issues

The other day I was doing repair to my Saturn. Since then, anytime the driver-side door is open, it makes the beeping noise. It used to do this when the keys were left in the ignition or the lights left on, but since the repair, it has done it regardless, anytime the door is open. Is there anyway to make the beeping stop? I tried disconnecting the wiring to the door, but it disables the power seat belts. So is there anyway to make the constant beeping stop without disabling the seat belts?
Do you
have the same problem?

I will ask what repair you did to the door. It would seem that the two (repair and beeping) should be related. It could also simply be coincidence.

The chime module goes off when two inputs happen. The key is left in the ignition and the door is open. Because it only happens when the door is open I suspect the other. You can silence it several ways.
1 Replace keyminder switch in the lock cylinder.
2 Cut and tape keyminder switch wire coming from ignition switch harness.
3 Remove chime module altogehter (Only on 94 or older models).

Good luck and let us know. :)

:oops: Forgot to mention there is an odd chance that is is a fault in the chime module itself. That is possible to repair or can be replaced. Does not happen too often tho.

I also have a '93 saturn that does the same thing. My problem is with the keyminder switch. I know this because, in addition to the continuous chime, when I withdrew the key after turning off the engine, my seatbelt used to automatically retract even though I hadn't opened the door. I now have to stick my finger against the ignition switch and wiggle it to get it to retract or stop beeping. Don't know if this really helps, just maybe something else you can look for to help diagnose your problem so you'll know what to replace. Good luck.
