Default Random interior beeping in 2003 ford ranger.

Hello. I have a 2003 ranger 3.0L flex non 4X4. Sometimes while im driving i randomly get this beeping sound that sounds like its coming from behind the dashboard. I get no check engine light or any other lights for the matter. And i know the lights work because i see them do the check when i turn the key to the on position. what could this be?

The beeping is the seat belt light on the dash usually. I had this problem. The bulb is burned out. Turn your key to the on position and see if the yellow seat belt light comes on if not that may be your problem.

If the airbag system is malfunctioning and the bulb is burnt out it will often beep 3 sets of 3 beeps sounding from behind the dash. My 97's been doing it for awhile now i really should change that bulb but I've been holding off until I figure out how to mod it for some LED's.

haha. no. Iv learned to live with it lmao. its not constant so thats why is so easy to live with .it happens like after driving for a while. 3 sessions back to back with 3 beeps each.

sometimes when im with some one in the truck and it starts beeping i pretend its the truck nagging at me for any random reason i could come up with and i start yelling back at it. right around the 3 session of beeps i start telling it to shut up and i pretend im gonna smack the dashboard and then it stops and im like....thought so #%^# and my passenger is looking at me like .WTF lmao
