Exclamation Dang dinger won't quit dingin.....

Not sure if this is the norm with these trucks, but when I open the driver's side door with NO key in the ignition switch, the audible chimer sounds off and continues to chime until I close the door. All lights are off on the vehicle, and all other doors are closed. Is this normal with our trucks? If not, where can I start to fix this????

Thanks

Way too much work for that fix. Turn your key to the on position, stick a small screwdriver or alan in the whole under the ignition, pull the ignition switch out. You'll see a little metal tab. Bend it back, break it off, just get it to stop hitting the edge and your dinging will stop. My truck doesn't ding with the key in it because I bent that piece, like others here have. Still dings if I leave the lights on though.
