Ford escape 5 sets of 5 beeps

My 03 Ford Escape has a problem. The air bag light had been on for about 2 years. It recently went off and now my car beeps 5 sets of 5 beeps after starting and randomly while driving. What is it?

The beeps are telling you that after being on for 2 years the air bag warning light has finally burned out.

Replace the bulb & the beeps will stop.

How do I replace the bulb? Do I have to take the dash apart?

Pick up a Haynes repair manual at any auto parts store.

The manual will have instructions.
