It might be waking up the hamsters. Any trouble lights? Seat belt warning?

no to all, i was informed that the chime was for the oil pump and that i should not start the engine until the chimming stops. this has been since i bought the car my husband says, im wrong, but he can't tell me what the chimming is for so i was hoping to get an answer here
