Intermittent beeping sounds


Recommended Posts

Greetings from "sunny Lincolnshire" i hope you are not snowed in.

My Corolla has been making intermittent beeping noises well after i have set off on a journey. The noise is either one or two short beeps and its totally random. Its not my Backvue Dashcam or Wase and i cannot tie it to lane change although it does tend to happen on long straight roads with just minor movement of the steering wheel (not dual carriageway). I have had the vehicle since January last year and nothing has changed. I have ignored it until now but i am getting tired with constantly saying to "her indoors"   "why the hell is it doing that ?". There are no indications on the dash instrumentation to tell you the cause of the warning beeps very annoying. 

Stay safe guys/girls.

Because of this thread, I've been paying attention to these beeps now. You're right Tony - I think it is related to the low temp and ice-on-road warnings. Plus the speed camera alert. Not to forget the beeps when you stray into a road lane divider... 🙄

Hi Guys

I have identified one of the beepings sounds( two short beeps) as my Dashcam but sound alerts are turned off so that's a mystery to be solved.

The short single beep I think is related to lane changing i think as it only happens over 30 mph and seems to occur invariably when lining up for entry into a  roundabouts and shortly after exit or when i am changing lanes on an approach to traffic lights. This is when using the A16 which is a long straight 18 mile 60 mph max  route  terminating outside Peterborough. According to the the car specs the short beep should give you visual notification but i have yet to see it.

Lane change, you have to Indicate to stop the beeps. Switched off in my car. If you hear beeps, check the main display, it will advise what is going on.

Hi Folks

Now in my last thread I wrongly assumed that i had established that it was my Dashcam that was making spurious beeping noises. NO ITS NOT !

Unfortunately its my Corolla and I still have no idea why ???  today it beeped twice while approaching a roundabout on the A17 and again about 30 minutes later when executing a similar manoeuvre. On both occasions I was in the correct lane so no lining up required. It appears my approach to roundabouts is subject to criticism by Toyota. I use WAZE as my satnav and its brilliant with voice commands and visual and verbal warnings but its not  that. The other thing  that drives me witless is how dangerous can it be when you are prompted by silly beeping noises to look for visual indicators when you are approaching a large obstacle such as a roundabout. I wonder if anyone has had an accident as a result of this. I dont think someone in Toyota has thought this through. I guess its one of life's mysteries.

A double beep is normally associated with a traffic cam warning in my car.

Same, and my car seemingly won’t let me disable this! It’s driving me mad! Especially as I regularly drive *under* and then alongside a motorway - the motorway itself has many cameras on it, and even though I don’t go onto the motorway (just under and then alongside it), I get a loud beep every minute about all the cameras on the motorway, starting with one 1100 yards away, according to the display. It’s unhelpful and inaccurate, and in any case I don’t want to know about a speed camera until 200-300 yards out - not 1100yds!. Annoys the heck out of me. And the dog!

Watch out for the police vans, the latest police radar trap and cameras are accurate to 1km, it can practically see if you have spinach between your front teeth the camera is that good, notwithstanding it can also see what may be in your hand!
