Strange series of beeps on 2003 Ford Escape

Shortly after starting my car a series of 5 beeps occurs 5 times with no panel lights or anything to indicate what the problem might be. The mechanics at the Ford dealership say they don't know...?? They should know. Anyone had this problem?

I have the same problem, but I think the air bag beeps are really fast my are slow and does it 5 times in a row
It's the air bag system. If you go through your manual with a fine tooth comb and check the warning lights section, it will tell you that when the airbag light goes out, it will begin to beep five beeps.
