Beeps and Warnings


Recommended Posts

Much fun during lockdown working out what's new or disappeared from the Auris to the Corolla:

New: two rapid beeps while driving - not speed camera, speed warning or lane crossing

Disappeared: verbal warning when speed limit exceeded

Any thoughts?

Never had an Auris, so dont know about verbal warning.  Im sure Ive had the two rapid beeps though and I too had no idea what it was about?

I get 2 rapid bleeps telling me that there IS a speed camera coming up. The spare wheel disappeared, So did the manual handbrake. Manual control of auto headlights also gone. If these were put back on the Corolla it would be a half decent car.😁

I get 2 rapid beeps soon after I start off if the outside temperature is 3C or below to warn of possible ice. Usually, you are busy manoeuvring, and have just set off, so not in a position to immediately look at the instrument panel, and the alert has gone before you get a chance to do so. Maybe it is that? It baffled me a few times, until it did it when I could safely look at the panel, and saw the warning, which goes after a few seconds.

 

Verbal speed limit warning would drive me mad. My Garmin in the other vehicle beeps incessantly as you waver around the speed limit, annoying any passengers as well (when we were allowed to have some!). So if the Corolla had voice alert, that would be another thing I would switch off fast as possible.

I agree mate, can you remember, did you have cruise on at the time? I sort of recall maybe getting a double beep when I had cruise on and the car ran away down a hill briefly before slowing itself?
