On my 2007 Ford Taurus, the door chime alert is sounding for no reason when driver door is opened after turning key off and removing it from the ignition. Headlights are off too.
Also, the driver's door will
automatically unlock itself if I attempt
to lock the car using the power door
lock switch. It's acting as if there is a
key left in the ignition but in both
cases the key has been removed.
Sounds like your ignition switch if faulty.
faulty from gunk, maybe spray it with a solvent cleaner and air pressure blast
Try a squirt of WD-40 in the keyhole. Then insert and remove the key several times to free it up. HTH. - Jim
