I was driving along yesterday, and my dash beeped at me. It's not low on gas or anything like that, I've checked the filters, fluids and all that other junk in the last week, but every once in a while, it beeps at me. Why?

It could be because the outside air temp has dropped below 38 degrees. Does your OBC say anything after the beep?

Oh, yeah. You could also have the "speed limit" set on the OBC, too. It'll beep if you exceed the set speed in the OBC.

kestrel is right on the money... it happens to me everyday cuz of the outside temp... my sensor wire got loose and so i zip tied it next to the headlight... so it randomly beeps whenever the temp fluctuates..

On my old car 95 318 the clock backlight was blown on the Check Control / Clock / Outdoor Temperature Unit (11 button not 18 button). I had this intermittent beeping that had nothing to do with the temp. What I actually did was unknowingly set the memo feature and couldn't see that I did because the backlight was blown.

*headscratch* You sure, Teg? Thought pretty much all the models had temperature on the on-board-computer.

That's what it was, though. Beeped at me, and I looked down- temp was just crossing from 38 to 37.

the temperature sensor i believe is towards the front by the brake ducts... its like a long black needle with a yellow squarey butt... hope that helps... maybe your sensor is shot.. they are pretty cheap... try bavauto...

The sensor is tucked up near your front left fog light, mine beeps when the temp get below 3 degrees C. The display on the OBC also changes to the Temp section at the same time. Mine is the full 12 function OBC
