Turn signal on a little too long?

Check your exterior lighting. It could be your emergency flashers which are inclusive of all of your turn signal lights. As i just had it happen to me, it was the left turn signal. First the chime would happen randomly (When in reality it was not random, it was actually every time I used the left turn signal). Also another way to determine if its one of the bulbs is to hit the lock button on your alarm if you have one. all of your lights should flash when you lock it. If not, there ya go. Also the only other random chime would be a low fuel indicator, but then you would have the low fuel light on - just a thought. If you still have all your lights working fine, I would recommend changing all of your exterior bulbs on your Jeep. its what we did and no more chime and all the exterior lights work.

Hope this helps you.

I get that too. Not related to braking. The Patriot just has a random electronic burp and it sounds like a chime, I guess.

2011 Jeep Patriot Random Chime

I have 2011 Jeep Patriot and I hear a random chime. My exterior lights appear to all be okay. Today I heard it twice after I had been driving for awhile. The firs time I heard it was making a left hand turn, turn signal was working correctly. The second time I heard I was making a right hand turn. I might have been applying some pressure to the brake but I am not 100% sure, I don't recall. Any ideas?

Possibly the wiring under the flashing on the driver's side door. I know this area has been an issue before and possibly one of the exterior light circuits is failing intermittently? Just a thought.

another possibility is low oil pressure
they light only comes on briefly during the chime, by the time you look at the dash when you hear the chime light is already out
check your oil level

When I first got mine, it had a front left signal bulb not working. I would get a chime sometimes, but not always when I used the signal. the blinker indicator inside acted like the signal was working fine, it blinked normally. On older cars the blinker would either blink faster than normal or just not blink at all if a bulb was out.
Finally, I got someone to watch the lights while I used the signals...and sure enough, the light was on, but just wouldn't blink when I used the turn signal.
Upon removing it, I found that the people who rebuilt it (rebuilt title) used a different P/N bulb and the computer recognized that and was dinging me that something wasn't right.
I changed out both front bulbs and it hasn't dinged since (almost 3 year ago).

You might want to get someone to look at your brake lights while you press the pedal...with and without the lights on.

Check that all of your lights on the exterior work.

A mysterious ding, with no warning lights or messages is pretty much always an indication that a light bulb is burned out. It would be awesome if they could tell you which one, but they leave you to figure it out on your own.
