: Car now chirps 3 times at random (inside of car)

I went out the other night and the girl I was with kept hitting my I-drive knob. The car started to beep, it was a beep I've never heard before. She has no clue what she did and neither do I.It doesn't sound like the chime when you open the door or leave your key in. Now when I'm driving down the road the car will chirp 3 times and then stop. Then at some other random time during my driving it will do it again. I thought maybe the speed limiter feature was on, its not. I have no clue if its giving me a warning for something or what. Nothing pops up on the dash to say it is. Just kind of clueless.

It's the hourly chime. Go to iDrive settings, date time, turn off hourly chime.

Hourly chime like he said, it will beep everytime on the hour.

Thanks guys, I went into the menu and say that it was on. I didn't even know the car could do that.

"randomly" = "hourly"

glad you figured it out :D
