Not sure what the long beep (audible warning) is trying to tell me.
Love the site, just registered but have used your forums for over a year any time I wondered about something on my X. I have an 03 SC SE Automatic with about 55,000 miles on it.
Here is my problem. About a week ago I noticed I would get a 5 second or so beep after I started driving. It seems to only do it a couple of times at the beginning of any drive then goes away. No lights come on the dash to distinguish the problem so Im not sure what it is trying to warn me about.
I do have two issues going on with the truck right now that might be related.
First, my wife caught the back tire against another vehicle a few months back and slashed the tire and rim, so I am running one full size spare. This caused the Tire Pressure light to come on and not go off, even after checking all the tires for the correct pressure. Im guessing the sensor is damaged, but I can live with that light until I get the sensor replaced. Thing is the light was the only problem I have ever seen, never and audio warning. So my guess is thats not the problem.
Second, one of my brake lights is out and I have not got around to replacing it yet, Dang Holidays! Anyways, I think it has only been out a couple of weeks which would put it in the same time frame as the beep I started getting. But I cant find anything online that says thats the case.
So does anyone have any idea whats going on? Im hoping I luck out and its just a warning for the brake light!
Thanks one and all for any help or advice you give.
