hello, your vehicle is equipped with a "chime module" that will send off a chime like the lights are on, door open etc even with no oli pressure, low oil pressure, low fuel, low coolant, no coolant, running hot etc. the chime may sound different for each. Are there ANY lights coming on dash or any guage that is not reading correct when this happens?
