Are you referring to the memo chime from your OBC? Default is 30 minutes of driving I believe.

maybe you have a speed limit on your OBC, you can make them ding after you get up to a certain speed.

no there's no vibration or anything. Usually it's by the time I get out of my driveway and go to the end of my street (around 4 houses) when I hear it.

Thanks guys. I hope it's nothing serious.

dude - look at your OBC when it dings.. if the temp is colder than 3C then it's warning you of possible black ice out there.. The temp will be lit on the display for a few seconds.. then it'll go blank

it gets annoying - but it's a great reminder to take it easy..
