Is the car is trying to tell me something?

    So, about a week ago I noticed that the red triangle in the centre console is lit (constant on, so not the hazards) while I was driving in the daytime (with only the DRL's on). I hadn't noticed it lit before while driving in the day and wasn't sure if it meant anything.

    This morning, I start the car and there's a bleep of about a second long, just after it starts. Then for some reason, I look down to see that the red triangle is no longer lit.

    Is this some kind of DPF thing?

    (Naturally, I haven't yet taken the drastic step of reading the manual!)

    Maybe this is really just two seperate questions:

    1. Why would the hazard light button be lit during the day while driving?
    2. What does it mean when you get a single bleep from the dash, just after starting it?

    No idea! Although if it helps, my hazard ligth switch stays lit for 30 seconds after you take the key out of the ignition. I presume this is so if its dark and your car conks out, you can find the switch!
