Default Door Chime 2002 Ford Ranger

I just purchased a 2002 Ford Ranger a couple of days ago. Today, the door chime starts dinging as soon as I open the driver's door to get in (keys are not in the ignition). It stops as soon as the door closes. I've double checked to make sure everything inside is turned off. Any suggestions?

I've read through many of the posts on the forum and have seen others dealing with the chime staying on; however, I haven't seen my particular issue.

Also, is it normal to be able to turn on the radio without putting the key in the ignition?

Thanks!

Just fixed this on an 01 Ranger.

Take the plastic cover around the steering column off. On the side of the ignition lock cylinder, you'll find a wire attached to a metal contact and a bit of plastic. This is for the key in chime. The plastic breaks and it lets the contact touch the metal side of the lock cylinder.

You can fix it by gluing it back in place and it will chime only when the key is in and the door is open, or you can just tape up the contact and it won't chime at any time.
