Fiche page 9-030, it's called a "Gong", relay position "4" (4th from the left
in that row).  You'll have to pull off the kick panel under the steering wheel
to access it.  Don't know what the "gong" controls, but here's a quick test:
turn on the radio, volume low, and open the driver's door.  No gong noise?  

The relay next to it (position "3") is for the time control unit for door
contact, interior light, footwell light.

The index at the back of the fiche is great; part numbers in numerical order,
with page numbers referenced.
