It's a 1995 Escort LX. Overall, this has been a very good car.
I tried to reply earlier, but a quick power outage erased my post. We
had some longer ones after those hurricanes.
We heard this type of noise once before. That involved a new
ignition. The owner's manual mentioned that series of five beeps would
indicate that the airbags needed servicing. This sounds consistent.
Those noises did come on twice while on the road.
Believe it or not, this is our first car with airbags. What year
did they become mandatory? This car's been rear ended twice. No one
got hurt. In neither case did the airbags deploy.
Did anyone see the season opener of ER? Sam's hitting the
antelope was quite realistic. But wouldn't the airbags have went off?
Why was she and Luka on a country road anyway? They were headed for
Colorado. Would anyone here buy a CD of car noises?
