Whenever i have the headlights on on my 1987 GT, something weird happens. You know when you have the car off and the headlgihts are on, the car beeps? Well it does this even when the car is running now. It does it pretty much always, flicking on and off. If i hit the dash or turn on my subwoofer, it sometimes will end up stopping for a bit. It also doesnt as much after the car is extremely warmed up. Im pretty sure this is a result of my subwoofer, so im guessing some sensor somewhere is freaking out. Its not the door sensor because it only happens when the headlights are on, and the dome lights stay off when theyre supposed to. Any ideas which sensor this is then? (if it is a sensor)

Sounds like a bad connection in or near the chime unit (blue dingy thingy). I'm pretty sure it's got an "ignition sense" lead. Sounds like it's not making contact.
It's under the right side of the dash. Make sure it's plugged in tightly.

Cool! I get lucky and guess correctly, once in a while.

BTW, Welcome to the Forum. And welcome to our obsession.
