Question about Oldsmobile Silhouette

1 Answer

Tail lights not working, bell for lights left on or key in ignition sounds when exiting vehicle.

My van does not have tailights, the dashboard lights do not work and when exiting the vehicle the warning bell for lights/key in ignition sound. As well intermittently the dashboard lights will flash when the left signal light is turned on. I have replaced the dimmer switch and this did not solve the problem. I have replaced all the bulbs as well.

You have a problem with the loom ( the vehicle wiring system)
Frankly it sounds really costly- flip it!

Changed battery terminals and now dinging wont stop unless warning light fuse removed


It sounds like it thinks the key is still in it all the time. Try turning the key forward to the on position, but not running, so the dinging stops. disconnect the battery. Remove the key completely and reconnect the battery.

Stereo quits, interior lights quit and I cant lock with fob - is this to do with the BCM


The dashboard module can also cause this, but it is a good possibility that the bcm is bad. Check for water intrusion around the bcm and under the passenger side of the dash. The drain tube for the a/c can get clogged with debris and cause the water runoff to come back into vehicle and create many problems.

1998 Ford Escort dashboard warning lights and gauges not working.


Sounds like possibly the ignition switch is going out. Try jiggling the key in the ignition in the on position and see if your lights come back on.

ignition switch may be bad not cutting electricity to car when shut off. the way the ignition switch works, is that when car is shut off, there should be no electricity going through it. if in doubt or ya need help, go to any auto parts store and buy a haynes manual, they are based on a complete teardown of car for about 20.00, make sure you buy one for your make and model and year vehicle.also check main ignition fuse in fuse box.

Constant beeping when opening door to exit van


Good news. After letting the van sit for a few hours, when I went to get in it again, I opened the van with the key (ie. not the remote fob) and there was no beeping. I don't know if checking all the fuses (I fulled and checked each one), or disconnecting the battery, using the key, or just letting it sit did the trick, but it is now fixed.

Warning bell is on when doors are opened, goes off when shut or ignition on, all lights off, doors shut, normal. open doors with ign. off and bell sounds


I'm assuming that the key is removed from the ignition and it's still chiming..
Take some lock lube spray and spray a bit in your ignition key slot. Then take the key and insert it in and out a few times. This may release a stuck contact in the ign. switch.
The chime will also sound if the lights are left on...worth a check too.
These are cheap fix/checks...hope they help.

Warning bell won't stop sounding


Section 13-09: Gauges, Warning Devices — Chime System 1996 Windstar Workshop Manual
DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION Warning Chime Systems Three distinct sounds are used to indicate the area of concern. Seat belt warning generates 1 chime per second
key-in-ignition generates 2 chimes per second
headlight on generates 4 chimes per second.
Key-In-Ignition Warning The key-in-ignition warning will sound when the driver's front door (20125) is opened with the key in the ignition switch. It will continue to sound until the key is removed, the front door is closed, the ignition switch is turned to START or the vehicle speed is over 24 kmh (15 mph).

Safety Belt Warning When the ignition switch is turned to RUN or START from OFF or ACC, the chime will sound for six seconds or until the safety belt is buckled.
  • The safety belt warning indicator lamp (10C859) will activate for 60 seconds or until the driver's safety belt is fastened. Both the chime and lamp activate at the same time.
Anytime the ignition switch is released from START and returns to RUN while the safety belt lamp or chime is activated, the safety belt warning lamp or chime will remain activated until either the timing sequence has been executed, or the safety belt is buckled.

Headlamp Switch On Warning The chime will be activated if the headlamps or parking lamps are ON, the key is not in the ignition and the driver's door is opened. The chime will sound at a rate of four per second.
