Hi,

Have you checked the charge of the battery? A lot of times when they start to get drained a lot of odd things start to happen that don't seem to have a lot to do with each other.

Let me know if this all just happened one day or if you just purchased this vehicle. If you just purchased it then it may not be the battery but should still be checked.

Let me know and we can go from there. Also, if you can try to identify what chime it is that will help. Are there any lights associated with it or just a chime?

Thanks

I just bought the car.
The chime is like the door ajar chime.
The rear interior dome light comes on.
It is only during the turn. Once the wheels straighten out it stops. Doesn't do it during a right hand turn. Only left.
