Beeping under dash (not door chime)

Hey folks

Anyone aware of another buzzer/beeper in these trucks aside from the door chime? I'm getting an intermittent beeping that sounds like a continuity test on a multi-meter-- beeps vary in length from very short to sometimes drawn out, and it seems to be driven by driving over bumps in the road (which would indicate something physical like a wire shorting somewhere). I've never heard my truck make this particular beeping tone in 10+ years of owning it, didn't know I had another beeper somewhere.

I read on another forum that these trucks can make a beep sound if a dash light goes out-- I did have an airbag light on before and I'll have to double check but I think perhaps it has gone out now... Is this true? Do these trucks been sporadically when a dash light goes out?

Is something on the passenger seat? A bump could make a sensor think there's someone there that should be buckled up- but only for a moment.

Well yes, my work bag... but these old trucks don't have seatbelt chimes let alone weight sensors in the seats, do they?!

There's no way. Correct me if I'm wrong, but there's no way.

Lol I know it's been a few years since I've been active around here, but did the old bear finally lose his marbles?

If the airbag lamp is blown, then the beep will act as a substitute for the airbag system, which still provides an alarm for the driver after the lamp is out.

I've gotten a beep from mine too, but have no idea what the source is. The buzzer is unplugged because it was annoying, so it's separate from the buzzer like Chris is saying. Maybe that's it.

I double checked-- airbag light is NOT out... Still flashing (need to fix that)
