why is my radio beeping like a microwave on or off - 1994 ford mustang gt


Asked by dukegt Dec 21, 2010 at 12:01 AM about the 1994 Ford Mustang

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

my 1994 ford mustang gt just started beeping from the radio and the radio is off or on and it still does it. driving me crazy. when  the car is off it stops. it starts after i have been driving for about 10 mins and does it about every 10 mins after that. sounds just like a 3 beep microwave. beeps 3 times in sequence about 4 times in a row and than the same thing every 10 mins . im thinking its computer driven because they just hooked up the computer on my car to get the air bag yellow light off and i thing that has set something else off. im open to any other ideas. i pretty sure its not my seat belt not engaged but i will ck that again.  please help with any ideas !!!

your radio,if factory,has a anti theft system in it,unhook battery for 5 to 10 min,that should clear the code and stop the beeping.

your the best ! its been driving me crazy and i will take care of this tomorrow. thanks mark


The beeping has nothing to do with the radio. I have 2 mustangs that have problems with the airbag system and the airbag warning beeper is located by the radio. The guy who said its the radio is clueless.

Mine is doing that too. Coming from my left side dashboard. High pitch sound like a microwave going off. The first time I thought I forgot my seat belt. It goes off for a few seconds every 10 minutes or so. What the heck is it? Almost sounds like it’s coming from my driver side air conditioning/heater vent.
