Random Chime

This is on a 2000 model truck. Always happens a few seconds after start up or key on and will also do it randomly while driving etc. It is the same chime that plays when a door is opened. I get 5 chimes in a set and get 5 sets each time this happens, so in total 25 chimes. No indicator lights on dash when this occurs. Any ideas? Its starting to become quite annoying!

If you reach under the seat there is a conection and if you undo it it will shut off the seatbelt chime. See if that helps.

Hopefully it is that simple. I will feel like quite the dumbass if it is!

I have driven Ford trucks at work for years now and I always got that seatbelt chime to shut up, funny how a burned out bulb will totally make you forget that possibility

Well guys apparently it is not the seat belt chime, unplugged those wires and still have the chime. Talked to a buddy who is a Ford mechanic and he has never heard such a thing.

First off I have to get this out of my system. Maby it is just the voices in your head messing with you. (I know bad J/K). Ok now that's out of my system. One other thought, I wounder if it is not the ignition chime. It might have a short or maby it is wore out to where it vibrates enough to where it sets the chime off. Just some random ideas. Hopefully they help.

In the owners manual there are directions for disabling the seatbelt minder. I would go that route because if you unplug the connector the seatbelt pretensioner will not work if you are ever in a wreck and the airbag deploys. Hope that never happens but they are tied in together.
