Car Beeping

Asked by MelodyDove Mar 27, 2019 at 12:18 PM about the 2006 Chevrolet Malibu

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I recently got a 2006 Chevy Malibu LT MAXX and when I
opened up the door to get out, it starts beeping at me (like
when I sometimes open up the door to make sure I'm inside
a parking spot without being in park)  today and I made
sure that my car was off, in park and to make sure that I
pushed the extra break down, but it doesn't beep when the
door is closed. I also had the keys clipped on one of my
jean loops with a carabiner. I'm not that big of a
"knowledgable car person," so I have no idea what's going
on.

Cars beep when you open a door to get out if the key is in the ignition. It's possible that added weight on the key ring dangling when the key's n the ignition damaged the key cylinder and the ignition switch is stuck; thinking the key is in when it isn't. You need a mechanic or locksmith to check this out.
