"Warning" sound

My car kept doing this , at least once a day while driving. It sounds like "ding", I noticed this happend twice when I was doing 60 km/h and couple times when I was about to brake and making a turn. There's no light on the dash or anything ... it just beep.

Hehe, new owner alert! I'm guessing you have an OBC, it's the ice warning. Whenever the temp drops below 2.5C it will give that beep.

Of course mine doesn't anymore since I removed the damn driver-door open alert, which happens to be the same sound module.

hehe ... my OBC display is broken ... so i can't see if it's below 2.5 C, but i'll pay more attention on that

btw, how do you unplug the sound module ?

Remove the driver's side panel underneath the steering column, and you'll see the speaker box, which is mounted on the backside of the panel itself. Now just unplug it, and you're good to go!

I actually found the thing by mistake as I was adjusting my alarm sensor last year, but I'm SO happy that I removed it. I know my key is in the ignition, dumbass!
