Re: Warning Chimer and Driver's Door Switch

I also have a minor mystery with a faint to medium chime warning when the drivers door is opened. This is on a 1989 Audi 100. It occurs when the door is opened with no key in the ignition switch and neither the lights nor the radio is on and the pressure is relieved on the door switch.  The usual warnings from the radio being left on or the lights on are usually louder. I have replaced the switch ($5) in the door but that did not help. There is no chiming noise if I open the passenger door. Also the overhead lights do not come on when either front door is opened. The light comes on when the doors are shut and stays on for a timed interval. Is there a switch in the drivers seat to set off the seat belt warning when the seat is occupied? 
Not according to wiring diagram I have (Mitchell).  Driver door switch is
brown/blue wired to interior light delay control (on aux relay panel) and
brown/black wired to seat belt warning relay (have no clue as to location),
memory seat control and window control.

If so it might be sticking? Any suggestions on this problem will be

Interior light delay control on my 89 100 is flaky - won't turn lights off
if doors are closed but unlocked - will turn them off if a door is left
open long enough or I lock the doors. Could also be the reason for
intermittent fuse #4 blowout (which I thought was caused by rear cigarette
lighter short - but isn't).  Also, my antitheft doesn't work (yet another
box that the delay control is wired to).
Anyone else have any thoughts about Don or my gremlin(s).  Is the delay
control a high problem device?
