Random Beeping

I've tried to search this topic, but it is a difficult one to find...every so often when I am driving I hear some random beeps. Basically it is one beep, followed by 3 quick beeps (if that makes sense). i.e. 1 - 1, 2, 3. I have checked everything and cannot figure out what the car is trying to tell me. It has done it while driving, or shortly after I start the car (but have yet to put it in gear).

Any suggestions?

This drove me nuts for a week until I read the manual to figure out how to turn it off.

iMenu > Display Settings > Time > uncheck "Hour Memo"

I feel like that is the most unnecessary setting ever built into a carů. At least it doesn't beep for the number of hours like its a church bell.

Hour Memo

Made me smile you guys looking for the hour memo, had the same issue but worked out what it was fairly quickly, ie it coincided with a time signal on the radio station I was listening to, I now leave the feature on as it comes in handy at times and knowing what it is, is no longer intrusive.
I have to say that this car (and many others I suppose) have features built into that people have no idea of, especially when you look at the threads 'What I have learnt about my car since I bought it'. It seems madness that the manufacturers do not make it easy for people to identify and read these features, and mostly being men we never read instruction books/ manuals, but women fair no better !! lol

That's what forums like this are for. More and better info than a manufacturer could ever put in a manual ...............Phil
