Dinging noise

My truck dings like the keys are left in the ignition every time I open the door. Anyone know a fix for this?

Take the cover off of the bottom of the steering column there is a wire going to the ignition I think its black but its the only wire going to the ignition from the bottom its connected by a clip to the ignition I just disconnected the wire and taped it up now there is no ding unless my lights are on when the truck is off and door open.

Question Same here, but now worse

Our 02 F350 is doing the same thing, use to be we could just nudge the key ignition and it would go off, but not anymore.

About a week ago it didn't want to turn over, it would eventually start but not after several tries at turning over. Now it won't start at all.

The codes that have come up are:
p1670 EF Feedback Signal Not Detected
p1247 Turbo Boost Pressure Low

Do you think that the dinging of the ignition has damaged something else? We are in the process of checking batteries, and relays, etc. I hope it is something simple, but our track record usually leans toward the most expensive repairs.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Batteries are fine, we're thinking it is probably the starter, that will be next. But does the excessive dinging have anything at all to do with this, if it is actually the starter?

on the bottom of the column you will see a small hole directly below the ignition cylinder. turn the key to the run position. using a ice pick depress the lock pin on the cylinder (this takes practice) be patient you will find it. while probing for the pin gently pull out on the cylinder. once you get the cylinder out remove the metal tab (shiny tab) on the side of the cylinder then re install the cylinder and turn the key to the off position. no more key in ignition bell.

You can remove the tab without taking out the ignition cylinder. Remove the three screws that hold on the bottom half of the column cover and you will see the metal tab on the ignition cylinder.

Thank you for your replies. I will definitely "kill" the dinger, BUT, do you think that the dinging could possibly be the cause of the starter problem. Could it be related in any way?

If its cranking when you turn the key then its probably something else the dinging shouldn't have any effect on starting. Did you check your gpr?
