Crazy door chimes 98 Ford

I can't get the chimes to stop, except by getting over 15 MPH on this 98 Ford Winstar. Seems related to the ignition key. Had new dealer key cut, but no help. the chime is in what looks like the computer, so cutting it out. Any fixes to deactivate it? Thanks.

If there is a separate fuse for them, why not pull the fuse?

I did a little research on another site. As I thought, the problem is with door sensors. If they think a door is open, the chime will ding until you get to 15 mph. Check the side doors and rear door for contacts that look like chrome dots. Clean them really well and see if that cures the problem. If the problem ends up being the sensors on the front doors, the panel must be removed to get to the sensors, which are near the door latches. Hope this helps.
