2003 Ford escape has a series of 5 beeps 5x every 30 mins

The Ranger has the same problem. The light in your Passenger side air bag interlock is burned out. You can buy the new light for pennies but you have to solder it in.

I think what you are seeing is an airbag readiness light. Here is what the owners manual says about it:

Air bag readiness
Momentarily illuminates when the
ignition is turned to the RUN
position. If the light fails to
illuminate, continues to flash or
remains on, have the system
serviced immediately
Here is the link to download the owners manual for your car.

I have a 2007 Ford Escape that the airbag light is flashing 1 then 8. It does this a few times, and then stays on. What does this code mean?

I think you might have a bad air bag module or sensor that is usually a problem when the air bag light try checking that and see if it helps
