You replaced the ignition on your 1994 4.6 Tbird now the chime sounds every time you open the door without the key in the ignition What would cause this It started after I changed the ignition switch?
It might be a fault with the anti-theft feature. Ford has had several recalls due to this. Web search for safety recall on faulty key-in-ignition chime. I had the same problem with my 1998 Ford Explorer Sport although it started chiming all by itself. On my Exlorer there is a set of 5 wires in a yellow sheath running from the ignition module to a brown connection point/harness in a very uncomfortable position directly under the steering column above the pedals. I unplugged the connection at this point. The pinging, or ringing chime comes from the multifunction computer located under the dash behind the radio. Hope this help.

the ignition actuator is broken, you can turn off the "battery power" by the the ignition actuator rod that leads to the ignition switch, it runs along the top of the steering column under the dash, locate it and pull it towards the steering wheel, this should shut off the power. or you can unhook you battery, but either way you will have to replace the actuator.
I had a problem with my 98 cranking but without spark. I traced and tested all of the sensors and harnesses until I realized the obvious. The ignition system will not operate unless it sees a minimum of 8 volts while cranking. I hooked up a simple voltmeter and tesed during cranking and had a reading of only 7.65. I confirmed the problem by cleaning the terminals and used a jumperbox. The voltage read an…
What is the easiest way to change a pick up coil out of a 1976 Chevy truck 350 without changing out the entire distributer?
If your insurance offers a discount for having an ignition immobilizer does a 1996 Monte Carlo Z34 require one or does it have a secure ignition lock?
96 Monte Carlos are equipped with GM PassKey 2 (the little chip you see in your key. Without that key, the car cannot be started. If someone tries to hot-wire the vehicle, not only will the computer not start the car but will also disable the starter and fuel injectors for thrre minutes before the car can be started again. To make a long answer short: Yes - this qualifies as an ignition immobilizer.
