Default Headlights Chime no longer working

I have had my saturn for about 10 years. The fusebox had to have work and is working but I no longer have the chimes for my headlights and keep leaving them on.

Anyone have a fix for this? The fusebox inside has been repaired a few times and its just old... Worn out. LOL

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Try replace the daytime running lights fuse. That controls the leaving the headlights on chime.

I know because when I did this mod, the chime stops working.

So by doing this mod you got your chime back? My problem is I keep leaving the headlights on and since no chime come out to a dead battery.

No, you LOSE the chime if you do this mod. So try replacing that fuse, it might fix your problem.

Dunno what year car Lionfish is navigating, but...

As the door hinges Wear, the door's aft section (which communicates with the Door Ajar switch) moves vertically in addition to swing fore-and-aft, hence eventually destroying the switch mechanism. Those switches are also subject to corrosive degradation of the contacts....

Later model years Moved the switch location from aft (down low) to forward/high (side of instrument panel) where the relative movement dictated by the angular swing fore/aft, is Minimized, and up-down is limited as well.
