3 high pitch beeps whenever the key is removed ???

Discussion in 'General Motoring' started by silenceseeker2003, Jul 2, 2007.

  1. My 2001 Accord collided with a deer... which required replacement of
    several things in the front, including the hood itself.

    After the repair, the car seems to be running fine now. However, I now
    notice something that was never there before: Whenever I pull the key
    out of the steering wheel (regardless whether I start the engine or
    not), the car sounds 3 high pitched beeps.

    These beeps are not the same as the ones reminding me to remove the
    car key from the steering wheel. They certainly sound like some kind
    or warning. However, no warning light is on.

    I have no idea whether this is connected to the accident or whether it
    is only a failure to reset some maintenance reminder.

    Any idea what this could mean?

    Does the radio have a removeable control panel (faceplate). You could be
    hearing a reminder to remove it for security reasons. It may have been
    silenced at some point. If the battery was disconnected during the repairs,
    the radio settings may have reverted to the default warning mode.

  3. Chuck, I just positively verified your idea and... you were right on
    the money!

    How did you know? :)

    Thank you so much!

    Setting up an automobile is becoming as complex as adjusting the
    configuration of a new computer.
