Beeping sound in first couple minutes of driving

Hi All,

I own a 2003 Ford Explorer XLS V6 RWD. I have this issue going on which I cannot figure out how to fix:

Right after I start driving there are several (I think 3) short beeps - they come in sets - 2 or 3 sets within one minute and then the beeping stops and does not come back until next time I start driving (start the engine and go).

It's kind of weird - I checked all seat belts and door locks - looks like all that is in check. Any ideas on what this may be?

Alternatively - where is that little beeper \ speaker located? Is it to the right of the steering wheel?

Thank you all so much for your help.

KK

Your air bag indicator lamp is burned out. Once you replace the bulb you will find there is some other issue with the SRS. Count the air bag indicator flashes and post here for help.

Thanks for your reply ncranchero! I will check that out.

However - when I turn the ignition key once all the light bulbs come on and the Air Bag light is coming up as well. Am I talking about a wrong light?

One more question - where is that beeping speaker located (the one that actualy makes the sound) - is it to the right of the steering wheel, right under the dashboard where the small grill (speaker grill??) is?

Once again - much appreciated.

Yes, the air bag light is the one I'm speaking of ...... strange. I'll look into the beeping being the same on the Explorer as on the F150 which I'm much more familiar with. I'm just getting into these Exploders...........

ncranchero - you were absolutely correct. I opened up the dashboard and the Air bag LED was actually physically broken off - who knows how that may have happened??

Anyhow - replaced it with a new 12V Amber LED - and it's working like a charm.

Thanks for your help, man.
