    so I have some mystery beeps.

    When I start the car and put it in gear (drive or reverse) it starts beeping. Its the same beep tone for low gas or any other messages center info beep.

    It beeps 5 times, 5 times such as:
    Beep beep beep beep beep....Beep beep beep beep beep.... Beep beep beep beep beep.... Beep beep beep beep beep.... Beep beep beep beep beep....

    then stops, there are no message errors or codes. Now the air bag light was on due to clock spring issue, but it went out. I believe it's burnt out as it does not come on with dashlights in accessory mode.

    Is this beeping to tell me the bulb is out or is it even related. Just randomly started and I didn't notice if it was just when the bulb went out or not. My guess is they are related.

    There are no other issues I can seem to find with drivability.

    Yes, it is. This is actually in the owner's manual.

    The Restraints control module (RCM) monitors its own internal circuits
    and the circuits for the air bag supplemental restraints, crash sensor(s),
    safety belt pretensioners, front safety belt buckle sensors, and driver seat
    position sensor. In addition, the RCM also monitors the restraints
    warning light in the instrument cluster. A difficulty with the system is
    indicated by one or more of the following.
    • The warning light will either flash or stay lit.
    • The warning light will not illuminate immediately after ignition is
    turned on.
    • A series of five beeps will be heard. The tone pattern will repeat
    periodically until the problem and warning light are repaired.


    So, you get the 55555 beep code if the SRS light has failed and there is an SRS fault.

    Thank you Joe, I didn't figure that would be in the owners manual. I need to get me a new one as I lost mine long ago. I know we have one on here, but to keep in the car as well.

    Seems reasonable, maybe even 0.7
