What Is my problem on 2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser

My chime will start when I open the door and I dont have the key in the switch and the lights are off. My alarm light does not come on when I lock the doors.

Electrical issues like this can be caused by many things, but I would start by checking the ignition switch. There is a little switch inside the ignition switch that detects when the key is in the ignition, if that switch is bad it thinks you always have the key in the ignition.
