There is a malfunction in the srs system.

the flashing airbag light is indicating a failurein the system and it is flashing a code.

the beeping is coming from the controll module, if the controller detects a malfunction in the airbag warning light than it will beep in place of flashing the light, this is to inform the driver of a air bag malfunction.

the light bulb may be bad or it may have a poor connection even if you saw the light on, the controller said there is a resistance issue in that circuit.

but you still need to have that system check to find out what started the malfunction and commanded the light on.

good luck

This is either going to be your anti theft system or your airbag system. If you have backed into anything hard or someone may have hit the truck in a parking lot it iwll be your Airbag. Your can deneergize the air bag system and if the beeping continues on next start up it is the antitheft.

Bring this vehicle into a shop as soon as possible. The beeping noise may be your oil pressure switch telling you there is a problem. Pretty soon the vehicle may not start. I'm not sure if this sensor is tied into ignition system.

ATTACK OF THE 25 BEEPS!!!!


The airbag malfunction indicator light on the instrument cluster might be the culprit. Turn on the ignition key check whether the airbag light if present. The airbag light shld be on for about 6 sec then turns off if there are no faults found. If the bulb is busted the beeping sound will warn the driver for five consecutive beeps. wear your seatbelts also.

Usually due to a poor connection in the YELLOW PLASTIC CONNECTOR underneath the passenger seat.


Just push it together properly and it should clear the AirBag fault

If the computer in the air bag diagnostic monitor detects an open in the air bag indicator circuit and if another system fault exists, then the air bag diagnostic monitor will turn on its internal tone generator (beeper). The beep pattern is five sets of five beeps. The pattern is repeated every 30 minutes while the ignition switch is in the ON position. The five beeps do not indicate a code five or any other code. The air bag indicator circuitry must be repaired before the diagnostic trouble code can be read.
