6 Beeps?

Good morning all, very occasionally the car (Megane 2 1.5dci Estate) likes to beep at me when the car has fired up. The beep sequence is 6 short beeps, then a pause, then 6 again, and so on for a period of 4 sets of 6 beeps (I hope this is clear).

No warning lights on the dash, no error messages on the mileage screen, no faults showing on Clip, fuel level is fine, oil has recently been changed. Car runs as normal.

I'd say it has happened about 4 times over the past year, and from what I can remember there isn't any common denominator other than it happens as the engine fires up.

A search of the forum and google hasn't thrown any info up.

Although I'm not immediately concerned, any clues as to what the car is trying to tell me would be most welcome

Re: 6 Beeps?

Could it be a seatbelt warning ? Perhaps a very intermittent problem with the seat belt buckle ?

Thanks for the reply, kind of makes sense as the belt is sometimes difficult to disengage.

Re: 6 Beeps?

Do you have an immobiliser /car alarm installed, especially aftermarket?
The sounds may indicate low key battery or that alarm sensors (volumetric inside the car or anti-tow) have been triggered. Sometimes even a gust of wind or a passing lorry might set it off.

Re: 6 Beeps?

There's a factory fitted alarm, and there's no chance of any lorries going past where it has been parked when the beeping happens.

I had heard that some cars beep when the car has been tampered with. Am I correct in assuming any attempt would show on Clip?
