Three Beeps ???

Does anyone know what does it mean when one hears three beeps from the speakers (even when the radio is off) ? There are no adverse lights/indications of any kind otherwise. its a 1994 318iS E36.

Thanks.

it doesn't come under any specific circumstances. Sometimes just after i start driving, sometimes after a while, sometimes on the highway, and sometimes even when idling. it doesn't necessarily beeps everytime the car is on. sometimes it doesn't beeps at all. again, there are no adverse lights or any other form of indication otherwise.

Does it seem to beep at :55 or :59 (I forget which one it's supposed to be)? In that case, it's the memo function,

i dont know exactly, but it sounds like its coming from speakers. i dont see any relation between engine speed and the beep or car speed and the beep. i haven't noticed the clock while it beeps. perhaps it will be that hourly memo. will keep my eye on it now, just to make sure.

It is the hourly memo. Three beeps a few minutes before the top of each hour.

By the way, welcome.

Also, the search feature is your friend.

To turn it off press the radar looking button in your OBC once and you'll see that symbol disappear from the OBC screen.
