Problem Description and Possible Solution
Internal failure of the ignition switch may create a condition where the key reminder continues to chime even though the key is removed. In addition, the doors cannot be locked with the keyless entry system. Replacing the ignition switch with an updated switch is the typical repair.

If I take the key out fast, the ignition switch stays in a key inserted state. This results in door chime staying on and prevention of fob locking mechanism. Replacing, slightly rotating and removing the key corrects this.
Car constantly chimes thinking the key is still in ignition, now it has started to affect my starter, i have problems turning the key in the ignition. This was most recent and yesterday my steering wheel started making a clicking noise when I turn the steering wheel!
