I wish I knew, my 1996 Plymouth Voyager began experiencing the same problem. The low fuel alarm goes off, and the fuel guage drops to about half, then rises back to full, it only does this with the tank about 2 gallons under full, if the tank is completely full it shows empty, and when it gets near empty it shows full. I replaced the fuel pickup unit in the tank, but it still acts the same. I think it is a funky message for something else wrong. My van has 126000 miles on it. The check engine light started coming on today along with the other problem, it flashes 3 times then 2 times in a pattern.

HEY HERE IS WHAT WE FOUND OUT:::

WE HAVE A 1998 PLYMOUTH GRAND VOYAGER SE WITH THE 3.3 ENGINE. AT ABOUT 100K IT STARTED DOING THE LOW FUEL LIGHT AND CHIME ROUTINE AS DISCUSSED ABOVE..THE FUEL GAUGE WOULD GO DOWN A BIT AND IT WOULD CHIME...AT FIRST IT ONLY DID IT RANDOMLY AND SOMETIMES IT WOULD QUIT FOR A FEW MONTHS THEN START IN AGAIN...AS TIME PASSED IT INCREASED AND WE DID FIND THAT FOR A SHORT SPELL NOT FILLING UP THE TANK ALL THE WAY WOULD HELP KEEP IT FROM DOING IT AS OFTEN...BUT MORE TIME PASSED AND SOON IT WAS CHIMING NO MATTER WHAT WE DID..IT CHIMED EVERY FEW SECONDS NON STOP UNTIL I THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO LOOSE MY MIND...WE ENDED UP FINALLY TAKING IT TO THE Dodge DEALERSHIP THIS PAST WEEKEND AND THEY REPLACED THE FUEL TANK SENDING UNIT. THE COST OF THE PART WAS 96.03 AND LABOR WAS 198.00 AND IT WAS WORTH EVERY PENNY LOL!!! NO MORE DINGING EVERY SECOND THAT I DRIVE! WE DID A LOT OF RESEARCH ONLINE AND SEEN THAT MANY PEOPLE WITH THE SAME VAN WE HAVE WERE ALSO HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM WITH THE LOW FUEL CHIMING AND SO WE HAD AN IDEA THIS IS WHAT IT WAS, BUT WE PUT IT OFF UNTIL IT JUST WOULDNT QUIT LOL....SO, WE WANTED TO POST THIS TO HELP OTHERS WHO MAY BE GOING NUTS OVER THIS STUPID CHIMING...OH AND BY THE WAY THE CHIME SOUND CAN NOT BE DISABLED, IT IS CONTROLLED BY THE BODY CONTROL MODULE...HOW CONVIENENT HUH LOL GOOD LUCK!!!
