Hello

Is the beeping sound constant,

while the radio is switched on?

And disappears when the radio is off?

A sound that comes through the car speakers?

Is it a 3 gong sound?

If you hear more than 3 going sounds, are they a multiple of 3 (the gong played several times over).

You say it's not the speed limiter, is that because you don't have the button for it,

Or is it a different sound to the speed limiter?

Hello,

No not const, it beebs randomly. its one beeb and the next beeb sometimes after long interval of time and sometimes after short one.
It goes while radio is off. And i have a speed limiter key but turned off. And the car beeb also while its not moving.
I doubt its something related to heat?!. I checked the car with computer at repair center. Computer said that high speed fan relay (fan1) problem. But the fan work when i turned on the a/c.
Can it be something related to the fan and heat ?

I don't think it is related to heat.

But it may be related to a fault with the fan control system. You have a fault recorded there and that needs more investigation.

You may find that fixing the fan fault (I'm not saying that fan doesn't run) but the ECU may know know it's running, clears the beeps.

You can do the diagnostic reads yourself with a lexia system (info here)


To make sure you are only dealing with fresh codes in lexia:

Read the codes, clear the codes (the ones that will clear) and let the car beep again. Read the codes a second time to see if the new or existing codes could be related to the beep.

Capture screen shots of the codes.
