I think we need a bit more info Laughing

Where about "inside", front or rear, or under the dash? Is the noise loud, or soft like a "modern car" seat belt warning etc?

In what driving conditions does it present - hard acceleration, braking, turning?

Always tricky to narrow these things down isn't it!

Nice one Mick! Laughing

Might it be coming from the speedo - ie, the innards of the speedo?

Used the car for work today and the ping/beep from driver side under dash did it a few times also when not moving at T junction and also at around 40-50 mph
What the hell is it?

Re: ping ping or maybe beep beep


If yours is like mine the alarm horn is engine side on the drivers side firewall.

If the alarm switch is starting to short out you will get intermittent peeping noises.
If it shorts out completely you'll be deafened. And attract a big crowd.

Try disconnecting the horn wire (awkward to reach Doh ) and see if that cures it

Having a lot of bhp is all very well, but on these forums it's torque that counts
