random beeping noise, wont stop

ok i bought my 2003 ford ranger 4x4 4.0 sohc 5-speed a few weeks ago, its wrecked on the passenger side, not too bad but it aint pretty. there is a beeping noise, kinda like the seat belt, but it beeps 5 times, for about 5 seconds each. i know its not the seatbelt bc it beeps only when i turn it on and the seatbelt beep interrupts it.

i have no idea what it is and its coming from behind the spedometer housing, it also beeps after about an hour of driving, 5 times again.

someone please help me out because its really annoying.

the airbag light in the cluster is burnt out. replace the bulb and the beeping will stop.

Yup sounds like the airbag light needs replaced. They aren't too hard to get out.

the tan and black pieces are all lights. the black ones are the main illumination, and the smaller, tan ones are for the idiot lights.

Alright so it want the black ones, even though one burnt out. But I'm missing two tan bulbs, one for the air bag, and one for abs lol so I just took the one out of the o/d holder since I have a manual. And I took the other out of my 4x4 low since it won't engage with the electronic switch
