while driving the alarm chimes sound like when the check engine light or low tire pressure light come on but there is no message. checked for error codes but there are none. car seems to be operating normally. what could cause this? dont want to pay 100 dollar deductible to be told they cant find anything but going on trip soon and dont want to break down. any info will be appreciated

Mine has done that at times too, no clue what it is. Ties in with the weird transmission not in park when the car isn't even running.  I think these cars are just a touch below a starship with out everything is tied together.

There are a few different chimes it could be, by searching your Owner Manual, but without being able to experience it myself, I'm unable to narrow it down. If you decide to head to your dealer, please let me know, along with your mileage.

I hear all kinds of different noises in my head. I've gotten used to them. It's the voices that still bother me.

Squirrels are evil.

Remember that car insurance commercial several years ago? One squirrel runs out to the middle of the road when a car comes along; the car swerves and we hear a crash off screen. The squirrel then runs back to the side of the road to his buddies and they all laugh.

Now that, my friend, is an evil squirrel.

Are you saying there is never a Instrument Panel light that corresponds to the chime you hear?

Any active system like BLIS, ACC or Lane Keeping will send a chime if it detects something. 

==

Warning Chimes - Overview

The warning chimes provide the driver with audible warnings that act as reminders and supplemental alerts to visual IPC indications such as gauges, indicators and message center warnings. The IPC controls all warning chimes based on messages received from external modules. The IPC prioritizes the chimes according to a preset hierarchy programmed into the IPC software. When more than one chime request is received by the IPC, the most important chime sounds. If a lower priority chime is currently sounding, the higher priority request takes over and replaces or delays the lower priority chime.
The warning chimes are sounded through the audio system speakers and the IPC. The turn signal/hazard on (tick-tock) is the only individual chime that sounds through the IPC, not the audio system. The parking aid and Blind Spot Information System (BLIS®®)/Cross Traffic Alert (CTA) warning chimes are sounded through the rear speakers. All other warning chimes are sounded through the front audio system speakers.
The IPC also acts as a backup. In the event of an audio system chime failure, the IPC sounds all chimes that are required.
NOTE: There are instances where some chimes may sound through the IPC and should not be interpreted as a fault in the audio system. An example might be when the ignition is off, with the key in the igntion and the driver door ajar. In this instance, the audio system is offline and the key-in-igntion chime defaults to the IPC.

It most likely flashes too quick to catch. Thats what happened in mine when the chimes went off. My wife happened to be looking right at the dash when it happened and she caught it before it went away.  Transmission not in park. Car wasnt even running when it happened.

What caused you to believe it was the water pump?  Any clues that might help others from your experience with this issue?

i read another post by another fusion hybrid owner with a similar problem. he was able to glimpse the message ,something like high motor temperature. in his case it was only a loose connection. i only saw something flash beside the temp guage but could never see the message. without that post(and it was the only post of its kind i could find), the problem might still be unresolved.
