Does anyone know why when I remove the key from the ignition and open the door the chime starts beeping faster than normal. It shuts off after I shut the door and it doesn't make any sense. I tried looking at the owner's manual and cannot find anything on this issue. Any help would be welcome. Thank you!

I am having this same issue with my 2008 Equinox. If the interior lights come on before opening any doors as I take the key out of the ignition, it doesn't chime. But if they don't come on, it chimes fast when the door is opened. There is a certain clunk noise when turning it off too when it's okay. I keep turning the key back and forth, sometimes restarting the car until it finally makes the clunk sound & the interior lights come on. Only then does the door chime not go off as I open the door. Dealer said it had to do with the ignition assembly & it'd be $600+ to fix. I'll keep listening for the clunk!!

Mine continues to chime at intervals even when seat belt is on. Anyone have a clue why? I visually see no reason.

I don't know about it chiming while driving. Mine does a fast chime when I've turned the ignition off and pulled out the key and open the door. A dealer told me it has to do with the ignition part not seating correctly. Fix is to replace at $600 or more. It sometimes seats okay and doesn't chime. Guess I'll keep my $600 and sing to the chimes!
