What does the chime mean?

A: Some of your vehicle’s warning are audible....

Some of your vehicle’s warning are audible. When this is the case, a chime will sound. There are four things that will cause a charm, and no other audible noise, to sound: 1. One of the front occupants does not have their seat belt secured. 2. The parking brake is engaged while the vehicle is moving. 3. The key is still in the ignition, and the driver’s door has been opened. 4. The exterior lights are still on, and the driver’s door has been opened.
