Customer Question
I have a consistent...

I have a consistent beeping sound while the car is on. It continues at all speeds. The parking sensors are turned off. It's not the parking break, or the seatbelt warning. There are no warning signs on the dash

Mechanic's Assistant: Which particular sensor are you asking about? And have any trouble codes been triggered?

No trouble codes have been triggered. I don't believe it's a parking sensor

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Ford?

C-Max hybrid 2013

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your C-MAX Hybrid yourself? What have you tried so far?

I haven't tried anything

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I think that's it

Is there any way you take a video of this noise and maybe show your instrument cluster and upload it here? I would like to help you figure this noise out.

No. This isn't really meeting my needs. When I was available I waited forever, now I'm not. By the time I am available again, I don't want to wait again. I'll have to figure this out another way
Ford Mechanic: EricFromCT, Ford Technician replied 4 months ago

Alright. I am sorry you waited. I work on here 5pm and later eastern time. No one else was available to take your question from the list.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
