The IPC receives audible warning requests via the serial data circuit. If the IPC receives multiple audible warning requests, the warning with the highest priority sounds first. The following lists the audible warning priority and the pulse rate:
Fast rate chime (200 pulses per minute)
Medium rate chime (150 pulses per minute)
Slow rate chime (50 pulses per minute)
Single chime

• The ignition is OFF.
• The BCM determines that the drivers door is open and the signal circuit is low.
• The BCM determines that the headlamp switch is in the park or head position.

The IPC activates the park brake audible warning as requested by the BCM. The BCM sends a serial data message to the IPC indicating the chime frequency and duration.
• The body control module (BCM) determines that the park brake is applied.
• The vehicle is not in park. The IPC receives a serial data message from the engine control module (ECM) indicating the gear position.
• The vehicle speed is greater than 8.05 km/h (5 mph). The IPC uses the vehicle speed signal information from the engine control module (ECM) in order to calculate the vehicle speed.

Heater in 1995 Bronco is blowing cold air....What could be causing this?


If the heater is blowing cold air and the car is overheating, it is likely that the problem is related to the engine cooling system as well. The following are some issues that may be causing the heater to blow cold air:
  • Low coolant levels
  • A plugged/clogged heater core
  • A faulty thermostat (thermostat that is stuck)
  • Broken blower and/or blower motor
  • Heater core bypass hoses that have leaks
  • Heater core bypass hoses that are worn
If your car is overheating and/or your heater is not working, it should be inspected and diagnosed as soon as possible.

My warning chime goes off at random.


Check all your seat belt attachments! This seem to be a leading oroblem with all vehicles that has a few miles on them. All it takes is wasting coffie or soda's into one of those locking mechanisms and it thinks the seat belt is not locked. All these vehicles have seat sensors too! If you sat anything more than 3 to 5 lbs on the seat, it thinks someone is sitting on the seat and the chime will continually go off and drive you nuts. Hope this helps you with your problem Sir

6 chimes when starting


these chimes are in fact warning codes, these chimes are telling you there is a problem, It may be a connection problem in your seat belt warning system to a serious engine problem, your dealer will know just by the tune it plays but check your seat belt first and then the dash warning lights
