Default What could be causing a continual dinging sound on my 03 Ranger truck?

I have a 2003 Ranger that upon starting gives 5 dings every few seconds for 5 times and then will repeat series approx. every half hour. No warning lights, seatbelt and all doors are secure. Would appreciate any help on this.

Could be a stuck door switch, or broken seat belt use switch in the seat belt.

its something to deal with the air bag system. Its kinda like a default alarm if say the bulb is burnt out or has been removed, its very annoying, both my rangers and the expedition do it

----------

someone told me once that there is a black and white wire in the pass. kickpanel, I could not find it, but said to cut the wire(s) to stop the alarm. Or if you could were the dinger is at, disassemble it!
