Hmmm, must be a lag in the system. Ok, well when you hear the chime/beep, do you happen to see if the door ajar light comes on briefly? I have seen something like this before and it was one of the door ajar switches on one of the sliding doors causing this problem. Adjusting the switch or replacing it took care of the problem.Chris

No doors are open at all. Its now even doing it when its stationary and in park :/

but not all the time
Expert:  Chris replied 7 months ago.

I realize that no doors are open, but one of the door switches may be acting up. Do you ever see any warning ligts on the dash flicker or come on when this happens?


Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Nope. nothing at all lights up. thats why im confused.
Customer: replied 7 months ago.

Sounds good!

Expert:  Chris replied 7 months ago.

Ok, the chime/beep will sound for various reasons like 1 a door ajar switch senses that a door is open, 2 a check engine light comrs on, 3 the key is left in the ignition and a door is opened, 4 the seatbelt is not fastened, or 5 if any other warning light on the instrument cluster comes on to alert you of a problem like high engine temp or low oil pressure. Do this: ask a garage or dealer you trust to do a basic fluid level check ( oil, coolant, brake fluid. etc.). If any are low, then top them up. If all is ok, then ask the garage to check the door ajar switches and seat belt buckle switch. If all good, then the BCM (Body computer Module) may be acting up. The BCM is responsible for the chime/beep system and may be randomly setting of the chime. If so, then it may need to be replaced.

Hopefully these things I have mentioned will assist a technician and help him/her find the cause.
