Hi, I have just purchased a 65 reg Citroen C3 and it has reversing sensors, this is great and very helpful however, outside it lets of a very loud beeping when I reverse, like its a 7.5 ton truck reversing, it’s highly embarrassing considering the size of the car lol

My question is, how do I stop the exterior beeping ? Everything inside is perfect, the beeping, sensors, screen etc it’s literally just the silly but load beeping heard outside the vehicle.

TIA

This is new to me. Having had the 2010-2016 and 2016 on versions, neither have ever sounded outside the car, and I have never heard a car with exterior reversing alarms. If this car is doing this, it must be an after-market fitment.

Further to this, if there is an external beeper it must by law be switched off between 23.30 and 07.00, so there needs to be a mute switch.

An example of an after-market beeper here. https://www.ebay.co.uk...
