Hello everyone.

From yesterday when I start my car (C3, 2008, 1.1, petrol), it beeps once after 2-3 seconds. But no indication of any failure. It always do when my seatbelt is not fastened but I fasten it and it still beeps. Only when I start car. Should I look for something? Or it could be only some sensor failure?

Thank you for your responses.

Hi jeffvader

Don't worry

It is just a reminder not a sensor failure.

Just like the seatbelt, but it is also used for several other things that the car wants you to know about.

If you get no visual indication, it can often be tracked down to the sped limiter set.

The others tend to have some form of visual indication that accompanies the beeping.
