So I got this beetle pretty beat up and abused and I am almost done restoring it. I just put in an aftermarket radio and discovered fuse 37 was missing. When the fuse is put in the radio will turn on and function properly.
Now previous to adding the fuse 37 the lights and locks and key functions all worked normally.

Once fuse 37 is added I have these symptoms
1) ANYTIME the door is open i get chimes. Doesn't matter if the car is on/off or key/no key
2) The doors will not lock/unlock from the key buttons
3) The doors will lock/unlock by putting the key in the door
4) The radio will not turn off when the car is turned off and the key removed
5) When the key is removed and the door opened the interior lights do come on

I have ordered an ignition switch to try but other than that I have no idea :( Maybe the door jamb switch?

Thanks I did try removing the radio completely and still had the same issue as long as fuse 37 was in. Will check out those links and see what I can find tomorrow.

Thanks!
