"Dingy" truck. Any ideas?

My truck has gone dingy...

I'm driving down the road and "ding, ding, ding" Look to see if there's any lights. No CEL, no door ajar, no lamp out (which is usually what causes the ding ding) Pulled over and checked for codes. No codes.

Just driving down the road and every few seconds "ding, ding, ding" Sometimes it's a long ding, sometimes it's a short ding.

It didn't do it after I shut the truck off and checked for codes then started it back up.

Any ideas?

Lori, all I can think of is to disconnect the battery for a while and see if it comes back. That's a problem I haven't heard of before.

First thing I thought of was a lamp out. That's exactly the way it acts when the lamp out indicator comes on, and sometimes it doesn't stay on, it flashes right back off, but I see the flash out of the corner of my eye. I know I've got a socket on the tail lights that I have to clean the contacts on occasionally because it faults and causes the lamp out indicator to come on, but the lamp never is really burned out. I did check all the brake lights, turn signals etc, and they are all working.

I tell you what, it's pretty annoying. Ding, ding, ding.......... ding, ding, ding........

It may be your seat belt warning chime even though you have your seatbelt on the switch that senses your seatbelt is buckled may be defective. I turned my chime off it tells you how in the owners manual but if the sensor is defective it wont do you any good though.

Some cars and truck will do that when your turn signal does not reset after a turn,turn your turn signal on and drive with it on and see if is that.

Awe, Kay..... George is feeling mistreated today. I'm thinking he needs you to make him a special treat or give him a neckrub. (but the under the tires remark was priceless )
