i recently had alternator probs were the alternator would either be "over charging, charging, or not charging at all".....
I recieved my car back from the work shop and they explained to me that the wiring harness for the alternator was dirty/corroded a lil... And that they tidied it up... but ever since i recieved the car back every time i start the engine an alarm sounds from the "Body control module" (BCM) it beeps 5 times 5 seconds later it beeps 5 times again... -so 5 beeps five time over.. "beep beep beep beep beep..................... beep beep beep beep beep"................... beep beep beep beep beep"..................... beep beep beep beep beep............................ beep beep beep beep beep'............................................... Then stops..... and stays normal (no beeps" :wink: ).......... -Think you get the idea.... :lol: Any idea whats causing this to happen?

and now ocasionally does the beeping sequence when just driving at normal road speeds.. but nothing out of the ordinary on the dials to suggest anything is wrong... :cry: :?

Is it an airbag or low oil pressure warning?

I've heard of this somewhere

Airbag -

http://www.fordmods.com/forums/documents.php?doc=3

Quote -
If an Airbag fault fault is present and the Airbag indicator is malfunctioning, then an audible tone will be heard.
The tone is a series of 5 (Five) sets of 5 (Five) Beeps.



So you have an airbag bulb out, and maybe more?

It says that it'll give the 5 sets of beeps if the light is out AND there is a fault, so i'd check out the rest of the section to see if you can pull some fault codes - just to be sure :)
