Default Couple Questions

I have a 1990 Oldsmobile Delta 88, While I was driving down the highway today my car beeped 5 times. It sounded exactly like I turned the key to the on position to start the car...but I was driving on the highway. Seat belt was on, brake was fine, no dash lights, car ran fine while it was beeping. What could case the car to beep while driving?

Also where on the transmission are the ECM grounds located?

Thanks,

Matt

Maybe you were driving with the turn signal ON for longer than normal and it was just the reminder to turn it off. It happened to me many years ago in 2 different Buick Skylark rental cars on the same LONG sweeping exit. When it also happened in my own car at the same place I figured it out.

Ha ha, good one John, I think he meant the other kind of beeping though, not the horn beeping, lol

I agree with the others. My LeSabre and Roadmaster will chime like the startup chime after a mile of turn signal on, probably same.
