Why does my door chime go off every time I open the driver door (and only the driver door)?

Asked by May 23, 2014 at 08:12 PM about the 2005 Ford Focus ZX4 SES

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The key is out of the ignition, the car is in park, and the lights are off.  The door ajar light
isn't flashing either. I've also checked the trunk to make sure it's latched.  The dinging
stops as soon as I close the driver door.

Sounds like your ignition switch thinks the key is still in it.
