    Herts Alarm Beeps

    I'm looking for someone in the Hertfordshire area with VCDS who can help me deactivate my alarm bleep.

    I had it switched on during my rear LED install, but now after a few loud bleeps I've had one bleep too many and I'm regretting that discission!

    I can travel if needed.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Cheers
    Chris

    I am away at the moment but I am in Stevenage.

    The downside to this is I have only just started to learn how to use VCDS so if you can get some instructions on what to do, then you are more than welcome to use my laptop and cable - Free of charge of course

    I am back in the UK from Thursday night, and work from home so will be around all day Friday.

    I think I've given it long enough to decide now and it was worth a go.

    That sounds perfect as I'm in Hitchin.

    I'll PM you to arrange a suitable time, it won't be Friday as I work in central London and don't use the car to commute.


    I can't remember how it was activated, but maybe someone can give clear instructions on how to do it?

    Yes. If activated it bleeps when you lock or unlock the car.

    As far as know it uses the alarm system to create the tone.

    I had it on my TT and quite liked it. I'm sure it only beeped when arming though and not disarming - is this an option on the A3?

    You can set the beep on for both lock and unlock or just lock using VCDS

    Ahh I have this in my DIS menu. I have the lock beep active but not the unlock - not actually tried / listened to the unlock beep(s).

    I've always enabled the lock beeps on previous cars. I never look for the indicators, I listen for the beep.

    I don't find the unlock beeps necessary and they would probably annoy me too.

    I'm pretty sure there is an option in VCDS to enable selection in the DIS, but I have not bothered to try.

    Thanks for the kind offer mate, but I'm now having cruise installed at the weekend so I can get it turned off then.

    I might take you up on your offer another time though if that's ok?

    I've enabled the unlock beeps and lets just say they lasted less than a day. I'm just gonna stick with the one beep on locking.

    There already is a video linked on this forum somewhere for both unlock and lock beeps.

    I have just found another video on YouTube with my iPhone.
    It was called "S3 8P alarm beeps"

    As mentioned I think you may be able to add the function to the DIS with VCDS , but I have yet to try.

    If there is anyone in the York/Leeds area who could turn off my beeps, it would be much appreciated!

    I have them enabled when cruise was fitted a couple of months ago, but they are driving me mad now (especially on an evening where the sound echo's off my neighbours houses).

    I can do it for you. You would need to travel to the White Rose centre and I could meet you there.

    Send me a PM and we can arrange if you wish.
