Door closed and lights off. The warning for headlights sounds completely different. Reading through the mods in your footer you clearly know the ff pretty well. Guess I need to speak to the dealer, but I'm guessing they will just tell me to bring it in with a £££ bill following on.

It sounds like the beeps you get from an aftermarket head unit to remind you to take the face off to prevent theft! how odd never heard that before in a mark 1 or 2

Definitely not a standard Ford sound so is something aftermarket for sure.
I'd say an alarm, immobiliser or something of that sort.
I have heard that from some Japanese cars and is usually alarm or immobiliser related.

It sounded like an old thatcham alarm i once had though that was 1 beep when u switched the ignition off to tell you the immobiliser was activated but that had a seperate fob programmed in place of the original

Thanks for the clues. The stereo has been taken out and replaced with a Sony so that will be the first thing to check tomorrow.

If the stereo face is removable try removing it before turning off the ignition.

It's the Sony Stereo. If you remove the front before you turn off the ignition it will stop. I know this, as I used to have one.

Not sure about the stereo. Nice to know the beeps are nithing serious but I don't like my tech too pushy. It sounds good and takes a memory stick etc. But the damn thing won't stop flashing. I downloaded a manual and can probably fix that but the dash just looks butchered. Tempted to rip it out and put in something else. The car also has the remote buttons behind the steering wheel. Currently not connected but surely it cant be hard?

New radio surrounds and spacers/adaptors are readily available as well as controller interfaces.
Tbh if the previous owner didn't fit an interface they were being either cheap or lazy.
