Door alarm chimes - with key out of ignition

Hey there.

2000 Hyundai Sonata ... when you have your lights on and open your door to leave the car, the alarm chimes to remind you to turn off your lights. As of a few days ago the alarm started chiming even when the lights aren't on and the key is out of the ignition. If the door is open the alarm chimes. this has never hapenned before. Is this correct. What makes me nervous is that this morning after a huge ice storm the car wouldn't start. We jumped it and it has been working fine today, but it's almost like there is something turned on and draining the battery. No lights are on.. HELP!

Put the key back in the ignition and make sure it is turned all the way to the left. My Sonata does this to me occasionally, where when I turn the car off I don't get it all the way to th left before I pull the key out, and it chimes when I open the door.

Check your interior light fuse, in the driver's footwell.
