Having had a 2L Hybrid hatchback (excell) for a month i have just about got used to all the knobs, switches, bings & bongs. Most of the noises it makes i hav managed to tame, suppress or control but for some reason  i get an alarm with three bongs. Nothing shows on the display and i am not aware of any problem. Its the same sound as when lane assist is on and you cross the line without indicating. But it occurs if lane assist is off.

I have googled "Toyota 3 bongs" without success.  

Any suggestions welcome!

Have you checked the online owners manual? It should have that info?

Could it be speed cameras?

Could it be the notification that EV mode is no longer available because the Battery is too low? I vaguely recall from the couple of times I tested EV mode that it does make several beeps when it drops out due to low Battery charge. If so then I feel obliged to point out that due to the losses incurred in charging the Battery from the engine (which for most of us is where most of the charge comes from) it's actually a bad idea to try and force the car into electric mode. I'm actually coming around to the idea that this applies to 'warp stealth mode' as well as using the EV button. Several online pundits have suggested that 'just drive it' is more efficient than trying to make it run on electric at every opportunity and it makes a lot of sense.

Dont think so

Speed limit is one beep.

Lane beep is switched off.

Mine beeped several times last night and it took a while to identify. It turned out that my rucksack on the back seat was triggering the seat belt warning. It doesn't normally do that. At the time of the beeps it also shows a row of 'people figures' on the dash with one in red. I did notice that for a while as I was in rush hour traffic and paying more attention to surrounding traffic.

Thank you AndrueC.

That is a possibility as over the last 3 days i have had no triple bongs and an empty back seat. But certainly multiple tripple bongs on tuesday when back seat was "well stocked". Will keep an eye on that as a possible cause.

New Corolla has occupant sensors in all three rear seat positions anything heavy enough will make the car think there is someone sat in the back without a seatbelt on.
