The body control module is in charge of the functions of the chimer. Could be an input problem to the BCM or the BCM itself. The circuits or inputs would have to be tested before condemning the BCM though.

Here is the technical description:


Quote
The Body Control Module (BCM) controls the following reminders:

Key-in-ignition reminder: An audible warning intended to remind the driver that the key is in the ignition cylinder. The BCM sounds the chime for this reminder at a rate of 135-165 chimes per minute.

Fasten-seat-belt reminder: An audible warning indented in order to remind the driver at the beginning of the driving cycle that the driver seat belt is unfastened. The BCM sounds the chime for this reminder at a rate of 45-55 chimes per minute.

Fasten-belts indicator control: A visual warning intended to reminded the driver that the driver seat belt is unfastened.

Turn-signal reminder: An audible warning intended to remind the driver that the turn signal has been left on while the vehicle has traveled over 1.2 km (3/4 mi). The BCM sounds the chime for this reminder at a variable rate (in unison with the turn lamps) of 50 chimes per minute.

Headlamps-ON reminder: An audible warning intended to remind the driver that the headlamps have been left on. The BCM sounds the chime for this reminder at a rate of 180-220 chimes per minute.

Last-door-closed locking confirmation: An audible warning intended to provide the driver feedback that the last-door-closed locking feature is active.

Feature customization and diagnostics feedback: An audible feedback used when changing feature customization modes. This feedback is also used by service technicians during BCM diagnostics. The BCM sounds the chime and turns on/off the fasten-belts indicator during feature customization, and also during diagnostics.
