Wiring problems

I have a 96 Accent and have noticed that there are a lot of wiring problems... like the door bell not chiming all the time and one of the wires in the code reader circuit working half the time... Did anyone
else have a similar problem? And if so, what was the best way that you took care of it? The one that is the most annoying of all the wiring is the one to the code reader since I have my own and sometimes it takes 2 hours of moving wires around to actually get it long enough to get a code.

I'm guessing you've got a problem with the door switch and perhaps a poor connection at the DLC. Check for loose terminals there. If these are indeed wiring problems, when the problem is occurring, check using an ohmmeter to locate and repair the issue. In most cases, you should be able to do that in a little more than the 2 hours you spent moving wires around.

It was actually one of the wires underneath the steering wheel for the door chime, that it would be moved a certain way then the door would chime, I just wasn't sure if there was an easier way than tackling every single wire individually, and if there was an easier way just to replace it all.

You're not so much checking every wire as you are checking the individual wire which controls the feature in question. In the case of the door chime, you'd need to look at a schematic, check the circuit operation, and check the wire color and routing. I'm guessing you'll find the problem to be the insulation rubbed through on some metal component. When the metal touches the strands of the appropriate wire, it'll make the door chime sound.
