Gmc envoy xl: front seat..every few miles for about 100 miles..popped…

Customer Question
I am traveling to Colorado...
I am traveling to Colorado in my 03 gmc envoy xl. I heard a beep coming from mostly the passenger side front seat area that consisted of 6 faint beeps, not warning bell tone, but beep beep,beep beep, beep beep that occurred every few miles for about 100 miles. There was no info that popped up on the DIC. Can you tell me if this is something of great concern as I am stopped now 3/4 of the way across Kansas for the night. Thank you.

GM Tech (Cam) :

Welcome.

GM Tech (Cam) :

There should be nothing around the passengers seat that beeps. All the vehicle chimes go through the drivers side front speaker.

Customer: then what could the beeps be?
GM Tech (Cam) :

I am at a loss. If there a cell phone or some other device lost under there?

Customer: no we have checked all electronic equipment in the vehicle to make sure it is all. turned off. i did read on another blog that it could be something to do with radio preset? I just want to make sure it is nothing to worry about before continuing on my trip or should i return home to st. louis
GM Tech (Cam) :

If there was a major problem, you would be getting warnings in the dash. As I mentioned before, all the vehicle noises except for the actual music goes through 1 speaker, that is the drivers door. I guess this could be a failing radio or something.

Customer: okay then. if i should go by the DIC on the dash then that's what I will do. If you come up with any other info regarding this issue will you pleas email me and let me know?
GM Tech (Cam) :

I will send a reply to this if I do find something. I am sure there is nothing at all that will prevent you from getting home.

Customer: So would you continue on to Colorado/Wyoming if it were you and your family or would you return home? I've not had any issues with my vehicle and keep it serviced on a regular basis.
GM Tech (Cam) :

I would continue on as planned.

Customer: okay then will do. thank you for your help and God Bless
GM Tech (Cam) :

You as well. Drive SAfe.

Customer: is there a gmc tech help number that i can contact when i'm not in a wireless setting
Customer: like a 800 number
GM Tech (Cam) :

That i do not know.

Customer: okay thanks
GM Tech (Cam) :

You are welcome

Your truck does not use one.

Customer reply replied 8 years ago

I recieved a code that slips my mind right now, but it had to do with mass air flow and fuel mixture too rich. The fellow at the auto parts place said it was the m a p sensor and had to do with mass air flow. I'm stumped on what to do now. I bought some cleaner to clean the sensor, but if there is none then what could be causing this code?

GM Mechanic: GM Tech (Cam), GMC Mechanic replied 8 years ago

there is a MAP sensor but not a MAF. THe code would help. If you post the I can tell you more.

You can reply at any time for follow up information regarding this issue, even after you accept my answer and I will reply.
