    When disconnecting batteries on these late model domestics, I have heard the alarm (horn) do similar things when it is turning on or sensing a voltage spike as the battery's being connected or disconnected. I'm betting your Ford has or had a keyless entry system. These were not some magical warning that your new battery was about to fail. It was actually a sign of the loose connection at one or both posts/terminal. If all else was ok, why would your new battery just poop out; because it didn't have a an adequate, secure connection on at least one pole. Take hold of each battery cable and try to wiggle or move it. This should have already been found to be your problem, yes? Hope you get it right. Thanks for your submission. TT

Get the battery situated, and your beeps should go away. Sounds like an errant security horn from a sloppy connection. Interested to see what happens. TT

A beeping noise came on and the air bag light does not come on


If you are hearing a series of 5 beeps, 5 beeps and then a pause and it repeats, the airbag light is burnt out, and there is an error that the LFC ( light Flash Code ) needs to report.

Pull the cluster, and replace the airbag light, and then pay attention to the LFC that will be given ( example, 1 flash short pause, 8 flashes, slightly longer pause, then repeat the 1-8 pattern again, jsut as an example ).

Reverse sensors work some days but then on some days I get 3 second audio alarm when I turn on ignition,


I find the sensors only activate when you are very close to an object behind you. At about 5 inches they beep constantly. Further then five inches they beep slower and slower until they stop at about 8 inches from something behind you. If you are very close to an object lest then 2 inches they will beep constantly. Also when you start your car and put it in reverse and you hear a beep the reverse sensors are not working. The best way to test them is to turn the key to the start position but do not start it. place the lever in R get out or have someone walk in back of the car, you should hear the sensor go off. Also, there might be a situation when one or two are not working. Follow the procedure above for test but have a stethoscope mechanic type, which most auto parts stores carry. and listen to each one individually. If one is not working it will have to be replaced. The control module for this system is in the trunk next to the spare tire. Some of these cars had a leaking trunk problem in 02 if the module is wet, get a new one. If it hasn't failed it will when they get wet. Finally the sensors should be heard inside and outside the car.

Jeep 2005 Liberty CRD diesel oil light and beep


I've never seen an oil pressure sensor that costs $750...Likely something else was done to justify that cost. If the light has not come on since the repair, I'd assume that problem has been corrected. If not, have the thing checked out again. If they charged you to repair it, then it should be fixed or, it's their problem!!! You should not be afraid to drive your vehicle. It's a machine, therefore it can and will break sometimes as do all cars. But being afraid to use it is not a solution.

Beeps while driving


My van did this aswell, you must have a power sliding door, when it is not latched properly this warning goes off but it won't say on your message center "door ajar". Stop and reopen the door and close it again no more bell. good luck.

Beeps coming from over by the glove box after turning engine off.


the beeps are an airbag trouble code, that code is for the following:
In most cases this problem is caused by the rotating ribbon circuit contact under the steering wheel having a broken filament, the part is known as a clock spring contact, u will need to properly disarm the airbag and remove the steering wheel to access the part. WARNING: Failure to follow factory Airbag disarming protocol can result in an unexpected Airbag deployment and possible serious personnel injury or death.
