How do I eliminate constant beeping from parking sensor while driving?

What do you mean "parking sensor"?
Do you mean the parking brake is on, or is the seat belt not being used?
You should be able to tell where the sound is coming from.

Why is my subaru making a ticking noise and how do I fix it?

It needs a valve adjustment. I am guessing about $150.

A pain on the Subaru because you have two banks of cylinders and each has a set of valves. Also, access is kind of difficult as they push to each fender.

I have a 2005 nissan altima. Which I hate, we've had nothing but problems with this car and now it is making a ticking noise which seems to be coming from the right side of the engine. Also it seems to...

A lot of times a ticking sound is the valves, which usually means a valve job when it gets bad enough.

But if it is a gentler tick sound it could be what is know as a wrist pin knock, which in some cases is not a big deal and others a big deal.

If the sound gets louder and louder, you will have to do something about it. But if it stays pretty constant then you monitor it, and look for other indications such as losing power, excessise oil use, etc.

A ticking sound

You probably have a bad outer C\V (constant velocity) joint on either the left or right side. The typical fix is to replace the entire axle but you should not need both replaced, only the bad one.

2002 pontiac sunfire ticking sound in drum brakes

make sure that you have the springs in the right positions. look very closly. i had the same problem one time and it turned out that i had the sprng in backwars and it was striking the drum. the best thing to do i drive it for a while like 10 15 miles kilomerts and then take off the drums again. look around for springss that are worn shiny paint missing. it could also be a piece of rust caught in there somewhere

Ticking noise

It is part of the waste gate just above the gas tank. It periodically checks for leaks and pressurizes and releases. Gives a ticking noise when it does this. Not a problem and GM is aware of this and said its normal on our cars.
