Random Beep part 2


Asked by Jul 07, 2013 at 10:21 PM about the 2010 Lincoln MKX FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2010 MKX  random beep sounds like the last beep after start up and all the lights go on
as the car starts ie seat belt, tire inflator, air bag etc.  I seems that the beep happens
most often when I am decelerating down to 20 mph and making a right turn.  Had it into
another dealer last week and they have no idea why it does that.  Any suggestions why it
beeps only once under the 20 mph situation.

if no telltale light comes on maybe it wants to and is corrected! like a tail bulb almost losing contact and the unit is about to display. If it has such! or an abs pickup failing at the wheel and tire!. TPM, tire pressure monitor remote signal a good possibility !


The 2009 models have the Forward Sensing System uses four hidden sensors mounted in the front fascia and audible beeps to help drivers determine how close they are to objects in front of their vehicle while parking. It operates only below 8 mph. Can't seem to find where the 2010 models have this. If yours does it might be malfunctioning. But this is just a thought.


This will sound crazy but my wife had the exact issue on her 2010 mkx. Turns out that when she was driving she would rest her are on the high section of the door and her elbow was pressing on the memory 2 button for the seat memory. It makes a single beep when you hold it for 3 seconds. :) Hope that helps!
