I believe my car only beeps at me when I'm in drive or reverse (never tried neutral...) and something gets too close to my car - including a stream of water from a hose / undercarriage wash at a car wash.

Unless you mean the horn is honking. If that's what you mean, it's because the car thinks you're re-locking the doors with the IA pad... try washing it without your key in your pocket?

Does anyone have a solution that's not messing with switches and wires in the car? That would be greatly appreciated.
Hi sirsim,

I would recommend making an appointment at your dealership so they can inspect. Ford certified techs are in the best position to diagnose and repair your vehicle. If you have any additional questions, feel free to reach out to me via PM.

Thanks,
Crystal

dbenney I assume if you put it into park it doesnt do this? if it doesnt, then id suggest not leaving it in neutral with door open... that warning beep is prob to keep people from doing that accidentally, so you may never be able to get that to stop. if i misunderstood your post please clarify you symptoms and exactly what causes them.

zehkaiser So you're putting the car in neutral and opening the door while it's moving in the car wash? Maybe you typed that wrong...

My 2012 Ti gave an error tone when I got out of the car with it in gear (auto with hand brake), but it shut up as soon as I put it in P. All error tones I get for various things I do clear up as soon as I stop doing what it doesn't like.
