Why do I get Random Beeps in my 2010 Lincoln MKX?


Asked by Jun 29, 2013 at 02:48 PM about the 2010 Lincoln MKX Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2010 Lincoln MKX has random beeps while driving.  It is very annoying and there is
no reason for this to happen.  I get no indicators that some thing is wrong.  I had it in the
dealership they didn't hear it.  grrrr...I posted and paid a website expert who gave my a lot
of mumbo jumbo, but no solution to the problem.  It is just a periodic random beep.  I
thought it was a beep that sounded when the compass changed directions, but that isn' it
either.  It is very annoying and irritating to a point that I am about to trade this car in at
40K miles...

Does your airbag light work at power-on? The airbag system uses a 5 x 5 warning beep, repeated every 30 minutes, as a backup warning indicator, when the airbag lamp is inoperative and there is an airbag fault. If the bulb is burned out, replace it.

@Tom well I had to look that up for myself. I did not know about that chime. Learn something new everyday.
