    When I start my car ever 10 times or so there is a single beep sound and a message appears for a fraction of a second on the DIS screen.

    The beep sounds the same as if the fuel is running low.

    The message ends with a “!”. I don't think its the depress the clutch message.

    The dealer says there is no error being reported.

    Any ideas what it could be?

    Thanks

    There is no image just a quick flash of a message on the upper part of the DIS screen and a beep sound.
    I can't think what it could be as there doesn't seem to be a pattern to when it happens on starting.

    My car hasn’t had any remap.

    I originally thought it was low battery level because my GPS logging system drains the battery after a while. By I've made sure that the battery is charged up every couple of days.

    The last time it happened I thought it said “Check User Manual!” but I really can’t be sure.

    Finally saw the error message on the DIS. It says “ESP Fault!” but there is no ESP warning light displayed when the car is running.

    I did mention it to the dealers when it went in for a service last September when it was still under warranty. They said no errors being reported.

    Mine does this from time to time, I just put it down to not waiting for the heating element to time out before starting the car
