93 Ford Escort chime

The chime goes off whenever I open any door on my 93 Escort wagon (1.9L 5-speed man trans) even without key in ignition and all items turned off (or so it seems). How do I find out what is making it do this?

If you remove the cover from around the steering column & have a close look, I think you'll find the contact for the "key in ignition" tab bent out of shape. You may have to remove the tumbler to see it (cant remember). Good Luck, Roger

Wow. This really makes sense, especially since I've noticed the key can be removed from the ignition in ON position. I'll be trying your suggestion soon.
