I thought this thread was going to be complaining about those annoying BMW SUV things! :P

Could it be your seatbelt warning or something?

Airbag computer. It beeps if the airbag light burns out. 5 blinks, or in this case, 5 beeps, is an airbag sensor fault.

People report that it will eventually burn out.

Or you could pull the airbag computer, or track down its power or ground... or fuse... cant be too tough

I pulled the computer, but you still have to cut a wire to make the light go out. m.net told me how. I can't remember but I think I unplugged a harness on one module and removed the other.
