Ignition problem

Need some thoughts on this. Had some issues with several electrical items turning off while driving down the road. Jiggle the key an sometimes they would come back on. So I replaced the ignition actuator pin assembly and ignition switch. Being it is getting a little old I also replaced the lock cylinder.

All the old issues are gone. New issue is that now when I open the door with the key out is beeps that the key is still in.
I did rule how head lights and other. When I unplug the small plug from the ignition switch no beeper.

Any thoughts?
Did I reinstall something wrong?

I had a similar problem. But only when opening the driver door. Popped the beeper off the back of the instrument panel when changing the panel lights to leds. Beep permanently disabled.

I believe a less permanent way to disable the beep is pull fuse 4.

I would do what the OP did by unplugging the connector to the key chime at the ignition than pulling fuse #4. Pulling that fuse would also disable your interior lights and if you have an alarm, it would also disable your door sensors.
OP, If you are periodically losing gauges while driving, I would recommend pulling your dash cluster and cleaning/rebending the contacts and applying some dielectric grease. It sounds like bad connections in the cluster and you can try pushing the dash next time it happens to see if the issues resolves.

Thanks for the info. I was hoping for some info on what may cause the problem. I did not have the problem until I replaced the parts?
