Exclamation Ping when door opens

Hey I'm relativity new to these forums, but i had a question. I have a 2014 ford focus st, and I'v noticed that when the car is unlocked and I'm walking around it sometimes it has a very faint beep that goes on. I was perplexed when i first heard it, as its very faint. Should I be alarmed?

It's either the sound symposer, or just a random single beep when the car door is opened.

The symposer beeping is supposed to be a repeating beep under the hood if there is a potential failure with the symposer system.

A random occasional single beep is seemingly normal, and I'm not particularly alarmed.

well it does beep more than once for a few minutes on occasion. Is getting the symposer fixed a cheap fix?

It should be something the dealer could fix under warranty so yeah it should be a cheap fix ($0)

So just an update: the mechanic at the dealer hooked it up to the computer and he said it found no problems. Honestly it doesn't ping that often, just once in a blue moon.
