I have a 1995 Chevy Tahoe and I accidentally kicked the side

Customer Question

Hey I have a 1995 Chevy Tahoe and I accidentally kicked the side of the car trying to press down on the parking brake on the left. Now, the door chime goes off whenever door is open but it wouldn't before. Is there a way to fix it? Would I have to remove the chime box?

I want to still hear the chime when key is left in ignition but just not for the door, since it just continues until closed

My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

Unfortunately the same chime operates the door open as it does the key in the ignition so if you removed it this would disable the key in the ignition chime as well.The decision is up to you but the chime is a rectanbular box under the dash on the drivers side behind the emergency brake pedal and looks similar to this below as you can see with the small round vent holes in it.

One thing you can do is the door chimes are controlled off of the small plungers on each side of the dash that the door presses against when closed.What you see below.You can tape these in or pry them out and unplug them.
