1st here is a link you can follow to the Ford Fleet site for a free PDF owners manual.

You are not the only late model Ford owner hearing this beeping, if u don't see any warning lights staying on in the dash after starting then then this can be related to the SRS system, that is the Airbags in the car, the owners manual doesn't mention it, it could also be a glich in the system since so many owners have the exact same complaint, my advice is see if the SRS system has any fault codes stored, this test will need to be done by the Ford dealer, they may also be a factory service bulletin about the beeping, I have not heard or seen one but that doesn't mean there isn't one around. I will continue to check on this and see if I can find any more difinitive information, suggest you read the owners manual and make sure u understand the workings of the car.

2000 stratus beeps twice, flashes twice, repeats untill stopped, but it drives


This is usually a good situation to bring to alarm shop and have them take it out and see if you can just keep the remote start or it might need a new brain on the alarm system

2002 Tbird will not start


Try the connections on the starter. Probably corroded from sitting. Has happened to me many times. Take the large wire off, wirebrush the terminal & the cable eye.

I'm getting an audible alarm from my instrument cluster as the air bag light doesn't light up with the rest of my instrument lights when i turned the key to on the alarm is 5 beeps appox. 5 times is there...


Replace the airbag lamp in the cluster, and get the LFC ( Light Flash Code ) to figure out what the problem is with the SRS.
The 5x5 beeping is an indication that there is a SRS problem waiting and the airbag light cannot give the LFC. Page 105 in the owners manual.

Once you replace the airbag light, you will get a LFC that is a 2 digit number presented by the flashes.
Example is a LFC of 42, the airbag light would flash 4 times, pause flash 2 times pause and repeat.

Once you have the LFC, either start a new problem, or add a comment to this problem with the number for further diagnoses.

2002 ford f-150 xlt extended cab - there is a beeping sound after I start the truck and it is not the seat belt sound. It stops after it has warmed up for about 4 min and will not come on again unless I...


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.

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.
