Constant beeping while driving

So I installed my Brown Dog MML finally, after having them for 2+ years, and I went on a drive yesterday and the Jeep is making a constant beep.. But theres no lights on in the dash and it sounds exactly like the beep when you turn the key. So I checked the oil and it seemed ok and wasn't SUPER low but I added some just in case. Does anyone know what this is???

Are all of your gauges and warning lights working properly?

When you turn your key on to start, all of your "warning" lights should flash, to ensure all the bulbs are working. Check that -- you could have a burnt out bulb.

Not sure if the warning chime is tied to the light function or not, though.

Yup... That's why I sked the OP if his gauges are all working properly...

Do the gauge test and see if all warning lights come on or not!

Press the trip button and then turn the key to "on" then let go of the trip button.

As far has I know all my gauges work fine.

Test your gauges as mentioned above, and then you'll know for sure!

I checked after making the post, all gauges and lights work, they all came on and went off. I checked my oil, and coolint all was fine there.

Two things, one could it be a low tire sensor? my tires do not look flat and I have had them go flat before with no issue.

Also I noticed my right turn singal light comes on and is solid everty so often could it be that? It was off when the beeping started.

When I left for school at 7ish it was kind of dark and foggy so I turned on the lights. by the time I got out of town and down the road it was light out. When I got to school I noticed I had left my lights on the entire way. Could it have been that and the jeep knew it was light out??????

Ps for the Op I found this might shed some light on the problem

The TJ does not have tire pressure sensors or seat weight sensors.

It seems I read somewhere about either the multifunction switch or the clockspring causing a beep when its malfunctioning. Can't find the thread right now, but try searching on here and you might find what I think I read.

My jeep will beep like that if the emergency brake is not disengaged when you are moving. Perhaps his E-brake is still up? lol

It did not do it on the way home and I did not touch the e brake. I had stuff on the seat both trips. So I do not think it has sensors there. I think it was the head lights being on or a junk senor or such

My 04 TJ did this on occasion and I could never figure out what was causing it, then after a couple months of owning my current rubicon it did it too. I hooked up the scanner and threw me a code for evap system leak (gas cap loose). I would have someone see if they can read any fault codes to see that may be the case.

I have read that the newer Jeeps have/had a turn signal warning. As in if you leave your signal on for 5 minutes or so it warns you that it is on by beeping. To the op if that signal is solid as you say the computer thinks that the signal is on thus triggering that warning. That's my thought at least.
