Default beeping sound

i dont know if im in the right spot but the problem is a beeping sound. i just bought a 96 ranger xlt and when i start it up you dont hear the beeping but after you go to move it beeps like 5 times then stops and beeps again and it will do that like 5 times in sets and then it will go away and 10 mins later it starts beeping again. is this a security system or is it the check engine. i do know the light doesnt work for the check engine but auto zone said it only need a o2 so i changed it and the beeping still there. im lost on wut it could be. help pls thanks

air bag light is burnt out. look for it to light up when you start the truck. if the bulb burns out, an audible series of beeps sounds in a 5-5 pattern.

thanks for the help now that you said that the sound does come from the passenger side air bag area. i would of never thought of that is it hard to get the gauge cluster out?

Instrument Cluster Bulb Replacement


not sure what size the bulb is, but i would just use a 4x4 one or another one from the cluster you don't use.
