So I had an ignition switch issue which was reset and resolved and it starts and runs... after about two weeks, now it has the door chime going on even when the car is off and all doors are shut. also the rear view mirror lights stay on too but not the dome light. To save myself the battery I just unplugged the battery until i need to drive it tomorrow, and until i figure out what this is i suppose thats how i will live life because i gotta get to work and back. 

How do i stop the dinging, and make it realize it is in fact off and all doors are shut. Ive checked all the doors, none of the push in buttons are stuck so the doors are reading as closed. the lights are off, the only thing that makes sense is a fuse or wiring or maybe its just a piece of junk. 

would my previous ignition switch issues cause this as well? Is it safe to drive or will more go wrong? I have a 7 year old and i dont want it just shutting off or going crazy while she is with me. please help

Sorry to hear about your problem. I used to have an Alero a while back.

You mentioned that you checked the push buttons. I would recommend that you remove them from the door jamb and test them if they are working. You will need a digital multimeter. You can pick one up at Harbor Freight for about $10 or online. They are easy to use even if you never used one before. You may be able to test them by unplugging them or connecting shorting the wire to the body. If you remove one of the sensors, post a picture and I can tell you what you need to do for sure.

You can continue to drive. Nothing is going to happened. Except of the battery draining when you park the car. Which means you may have to keep disconnecting the battery, until you fix the problem.

It is very unlikly that the ignition switch is causing the problem. Unless a wire was left disconnected.

It could be a short in the wires. Have you made any progress yet?

Its at the shop right now. They put in a New ignition switch and it is still acting up. It's gotten to the point that when I drive it it will shut off and lock up the steering (scary)
