    Question 4 Beeps from rear on start-up ??

    Hi all,

    Just recently my car has occasionally started to "beep" after starting the ignition. It doesn't happen every time I start it, but quite often. It's 4 consecutive electronic sounding high pitched beeps, that sounds as if it's coming from somewhere behind where I'm sat (in the drivers seat obviously).

    When it first happened I thought one of the kids must have left one of those little hand-held LCD electronic game things in the back, as that's what it sounded like. But there's nothing there and as I said it happens fairly consistently about a second after after initially starting the engine.

    Anyone have any ideas what this is? There's no message on the DIS or anything - baffling!

    Thanks.

    Mike

    Low backup battery in alarm unit? IIRC, it's in the boot behind the RHS trim panel. Not sure if it's a sealed unit or not.

    Aha!!

    Great, thanks for that, sounds like it could well be. I'll see if I can get to it.

    Cheers
