Q: Door ajar chime for 96 Dodge Stratus will not stop when all doors are firmly closed, what can I do to stop it?

asked by on

The door ajar warning chime will not stop. I have tried removing the fuses connected to the door but have had no success either one that I tried. The sound goes off about 20 times or more a minute and it is driving me insane. Is this a common issue? Is there anything that can be done to disable this mechanism?
