Default my "ding ding" is broke

My car doesnt seem to go "ding ding" anymore when its low on gas, or when you leave keys in ignition when doors open, or anything else where it suppose to. Where is this thing located, and where can i get a new one.

When I am low on gas it yells at me and dispays a scrolling marquee...

"Flill er up monkey"

Could it be a fuse??

Default ding ding

at the risk of sounding like a smartass(which i am), i was wondering if you checked your fuse box? kinda eliminate what you can/do check yourself. personally, i dont feel the need to have that annoying beep beep when my fuel is low. if i cant read a fuel gage then i need some serious help or join the "ricers anonymous" club,lol. yea, right, like thats ever gunna happen take care all!

Are you complaing? I know a lot of people (specially SSE owners) who HATE IT. I don't hate it, it helps me with my lights.. Just suprising for me to hear this here.

who are you referring to here? me? how does it help you with your lights? sensors are not always effective as the car ages. actually taking a physical look is better

Oh I know, my last car had NOTHING for dummy noises, unless the key was in the ignition. And it wasn't a Ding it was a WHINE. Damn 88 nova.... Anyways another side note i test drove a couple cars before the bonnie love, and i drove this 90 or so seville with a 4.4 V8. Well, it had computer everything, and the Ding Ding, was also the turn signal indicator! REALLY annoying car.

I know that if a turn signal is left on for more than 3/4 of a mile it starts dinging.
Check for a bad fuse first.
