when to start the car this morning and it would start straight away but then die on me straight after and the throttle body is bleeping any ideas ?
 
i think....... if you have the ignition on and the drivers door open the throttle body goes through a reset procedure.

did it stop making noise after about 30 seconds?

Ive had the drivers door open many times with the ignition on and the engine running but its never happened to me before :s it did stop after about thirty seconds yea but why it started in the first place ill never know is it its way of telling me its on its way out ?
 
it happens when you have the door open and turn on the ignition but dont start the engine.

the noise is the motor moving the throttle flap through its controlled range of movements.

i think it is a basic way of resetting the throttle valve position without using vag com.

no they do sound a bit strange - but its normal.

probably just you were under the bonnet looking for a fault when you heard it!

this has happened again and the only way to get the car started is to open the bonnet wait 30 seconds for the the throttle body to stop beeping then shut the bonnet shut the door and then start the car its ****** annoying !
