#1 of 16 Why does my Ford Escape Beep?
Sep 06, 2006 (12:24 pm)
I'm new. I'm looking for answers. I've recently purchased a 2001 Ford Escape XLS.
One problem, it beeps. When it first starts up, it does this: beep,beep,beep,beep,beep,......beep,beep,beep, beep,....etc. etc. until it does that like 5 times. Some days it'll do it, and others it won't. Sometimes I can be going down the road and it'll just start beeping. I can't stand it any more.
Also, some damp mornings it doesn't want to idle. It'll cut of a couple of times before I can get it to run. AutoZone said that it was the EGR valve. The dealership hasn't ever heard of one beeping before. No warning lights come on or anything.
So, I don't know what to do. Can some one help me?

By any chance, do you have a rear view camera installed?

Not to my knowledge.

The beeps sound like an error code. It is likely a two part sequence, like 2 beeps, pause, 7 beeps, long pause, 2 beeps.....etc
The error code is 27.
Then google (or your favourite search tool) "Ford Escape" + error 27
FWIW, I had a airbag problem, that at the time, could find nothing, then a while later, the same problem came up as the first hit......($257 later.....)

I just got a used 2001 escape and I have the same error. 5 sets of 5 long beeps with a short pause between them. I get the error code when I initialy put the car in gear, and it will sound again in 30 minute increments as long as the car is still running. Junik85: did you ever figure out what this problem was?
Thanks for any help

effective beep code: 5 long beeps, pause, 5 long beeps, pause, 5 long beeps, pause, 5 long beeps, pause, 5 long beeps, pause: Re-occurs every thirty minutes.

mine does that but its just the seat belt alarm, maybe your seatbelt dash light is out and you hear it but you don't see it?

Did you ever find out what was causing this beep? I am having the very same problem. Have found a lot of forums where people have problem... but have found no solutions.
