SOunds like the memo alert. It activates righ before the height of each hour. You can turn it on and off using the MEMO button on the OBC. The OBC may also be set to give you speed alerts, which can also be deactivated. Check your OBC.

ill check that out tomorrow, its freezing out right now, would the beep come from the obc itself? it sounds like its coming from the dash or sum place on the drivers side?

oh, and speed alert? in case your wondering, i have the cheap obc that just shows the temperature and time and stuff....

haha sounds like you're the younger sibling? because i am not. cause when i came home i didn't ask for it back, i told my sister i was going to beat her with it because she didn't put it back.

i'm kidding. i love my sister and we get along fine.

uh oh someone in heres gonna report me to social services.

anyway ya dude no fun i live in southern nh and i'm going to give you a quick weather lesson:

in order for it to snow/favorable conditions to ice, it must be around (for ice below) 32 degrees. since southern new hampshire is expecting an ass raping right about now from mother nature (it's dark right now i can't tell if it's snowing), it was about oh...i think my dad's temp gauge said about 12 degrees.

oh sweet jesus there's nothing like the feeling of an electric blanket to come home to

i must say miguel i'm enjoying chatting with you through what? 3 threads right now? and haha that sucks, yeah all my buddies jettisoned to warm places for school. i'm at UNH where the weather is no different, and my buddy basically lives on the beach all year. he goes to school at UC santa barbara, where his dorm/apartment is 200 yards from the beach, and when he comes home for the summer he lives at his parents house on the beach out here. so he's home for maybe four weeks during december when it's cold. the fucker called me on thanksgiving to inform me he had just finished smoking a bowl in the 75 degree heat.

god damn it! i hate new england!

bad e36 is an unknown quantity at this point
beeping noise

Your beeping noise is your obc telling you that the temp out side is below freezing . Watch your obc in temp mode and see if it blinks . It's there to remine you thats there's ice on the road ahead .
