Default "ignition beeping" wont stop...

my 1990 240 has this weird wiring problem- half the time when i turn the key to start it, the beeping wont stop and my radio wont come on. sometimes my radio comes on like normal, but halfway to work, it's just replaced by the beeping. it seems to get louder as time goes by and i can actually change the pitch of the beeping when i turn my lights off and on or roll down my driver's side window! had it looked at, but to no avail... any recommendations would be appreciated!

If you do not need the chimp, just remove the relay. Otherwise, you will need a new electrical side ignition switch.

I also vote ignition electrical switch. If you jiggle the key, does the chime stop?
