I've noticed with my key fob as well on most really cold mornings that it takes 2-3 times of pressing the button to get it to unlock the car but then throughout the rest of the day it unlocks promptly on 1 press. I would just put this down to the really cold mornings we have been getting.

I agree with the above, all these audible sounds tend to be related to warnings with the car. Aspe's list is definately a shortlist of the more common beeps.

If its a retrofit computer, check the leads make sure there are no short outs.

Do you notice anything else, like lights dim, inside or out? sounds to be electrical. The problem is taking it to a mechanic might reveal a short or an error, but because by the sounds of it your getting different noises I wouldnt say that a mechanic will tell you straight. I would recommend checking the battery, even if you borrow a friends working one just to check that it works, as a new one may be just as expensive as a diagnostics fee, but then a diagnostics fee with no feedback, or a shiny new battery that will always come in good, even as a spare?

My car was making alsorts of ticking and bonging and flashes before I changed my battery, they all stopped as well, but then again I checked my DTC codes and saw Low Battery Voltage so was 99.9% sure changing the battery was necessary!

Hi no i had no DTC codes but my battery was 7 years old and rarely showed green so it needed changing anyway
but the noises started in the last 4 months so maybe the battery was on its last legs
thanks for the reply
