Door Chime Location

Most people just follow the sound to locate the unit or wire.

I can find a component location diagram if you dont find it.

You dont mention what Camry you are working on but my guess is behind the panel under steering wheel or at above fuse block on left side kick panel.

:welcome:

The only chimer/buzzer I know about is in the seatbelt computer, located in the center console between the shifter and e-brake... you could start there.

Yep, that's where the door chime is located. I pulled it for a while on the All-Trac but put it back in because I locked my keys in it once (I was in a rush and wasn't thinking clearly.)

What symptoms are you having? I'm having issues with my door chime on a 91 as well. My chime keeps going even when the key is out of the ignition. The door ajar light is working fine and goes out when I shut the door so I've ruled that out.

Are you sure you're turning the car all the way off? There is a button above the ignition switch that you need to press and then you can turn the key back one last click into the "Lock" position. If you pull the key with it turned to ACC, it will make the door chime go off when the doors are opened.

Oh hey guys I forgot to update this. I found out that it wasn't this part that shorted, it was the fuse box that had corroded. I did end up modding this thing though, as I un-soldered the buzzer from the box.

Mine does this as well. The little mechanism inside the cylinder just gets stuck, I just tap mine after I pull the key out and it stops. Graphite lube would be the proper fix though.
