Would it be because the emergency brake is pushed, or the lever pulled up a little bit? Check that the emergency brakes are off.

Mine is doing it too. The E brake is off all the way and it still dings. Sometimes it stops but starts when I make a turn, and stops when I make a turn again. If the turn is too wide then it just keeps going and going and going.

It could many things. The common one is new brake pads are required. The handbrake sensor may be faulty also.

Has anyone came to a conclusion to this question? My Van has been doing this, my ABS light and brake light comes on and the bell starts to ring. Any help would be appreciated. Changed brakes.

My same problem. The brake light comes on and find. It too drives me crazy. It would ring for a couple days, then it would stop for a few days. It's not leaking. I have had 3 garages trying to figure it out.

Mine too on 2002 Kia Sedona. When the ABS & brake lights are flashing & screaming, it blows my head lights, all but parking, & broke transmission arm on windshield wipers bcz they sped off the window. Radio was also distorted until it blew too. It's like it's sucking the life out of my van. Ive already been through 3 batteries & 2 alternators. Dealership and diagnostic testing at several places doesn't show the problem. Have all new brakes, wheel bearings, cylinders, etc...

I have same problem I removed the panel in passager side footwell(behind ashtray) one screw located the ding speaker with driver door slightly open to make sure and removed the power took me two minutes no more ding . I know it's not the best advice but it spots that irritating noise. ;)
