    What is the temperature gauge read, i mean the external temp BTW, the only time i get a beep when i start the car is when either it's less then 4'C or low on fuel.

    I know it's not less than 4'c but the sensor maybe faulty? Just a thought...

    Try putting the key in, turn it so the electrics on, wait 5 seconds then turn it on.

    When I turn mine straight away it beeps and has a warning about ESP failure but doesnt light up after that, VCDS showed no faults either, I think its the boot light causing my car to behave weird (its missing)

    More like a 'Bong' than 'Bleep'? Bluetooth Phone connection

    I bet it's ESP fault. used to do it all the time on my 170TDI (58)

    Just a bit of character that's all. :)

    How old is your car? Mine does this when it's been sat and not used for a few days. It the battery down on charge.... After a drive and everything is topped up it doesn't do it.

    56 plate , I do only use it at weekends and every now and again the odd night through the week. That could be the bleep reason but no battery warning light.

    You won't get a battery warning light. If the battery is low and you crank the engine the ESP thinks there's a fault and it's the warning that briefly displays. It's so quick you can't read it on the DIS screen. You use the car similar to me and they are around the same age.

    Its nothing to worry about but at some point the battery will need replacing due to its age.

    alarm battery, check it and catch it before it leaks all over the place
