Well, I picked up my new fiesta on Friday and it's sooooo lovely to drive compared to my Mk6. Had a nice journey on Sunday where I got to test the cruise control and it was perfect :D Even had a few people staring at it when I went to put some fuel in it :)

Anyway, sometimes when I set off I get a sound played from the system - only way to describe it is 'Ding Dong'. It sounds like some sort of alert but nothing comes up on the screen (ie. saying a door's open or something like that). It doesn't happen everytime (I think, only driven it about 4 times).

Can anyone shine any light on this one, before I go flicking through the manual.

Thanks!

Are you low on fuel? A noise sounds when you get on the red, which might be it.

No, it's sounded before and I've heard it since putting a full tank in.

Sorry I dont have my new Fiesta yet so i dont really know what I'm talking about, but could it be the boot sensor? Only saying because some people have had issues with those... :)

Ooh I bet it could be! I'll test it tomorrow.

The parking sensors have a different sound to them, so I don't think it's them.

My phone does but not the car - was just having a guess. Maybe he's got the Avon lady in the back seat (or are you too young to get that ;) )

I'm certainly too young but I can guess what happens.

Are you sure it isn't just the in-car DBAA?
