Just picked up a 2005 Focus ZX4. Couple questions.



So i just bought my wife a 2005 focus. I know vertually nothing about them other than what i know about all vehicles. I have several questions. THe first one is one of the small issues it has. Their is a chime that continues to ding, ding, ding, after the car is started and your all buckled up. It stops after about 30seconds or so. Any idea what it might be? When its happening, there are no lights on cluster on. Lets start with that one and move on from there. Thanks!

I'll see about getting a video of it up and maybe that will help determine what it might be. In the mean time, does anyone happen to know where the chimer is so that i can remove/disable it?
