Weird Random Beeping Sound

Hi.

i own a 2006 BMW 525i, and when driving a lot of times that car gives me these weird beeps.

It always gives me 4 beeps, 3 short one and one little longer last one

like beep, beep, beep, beeeeeeeep



first time I heard it though it was something wrong and check everything and nothing, i get these beeps at least once a day while driving normally

Thanks!!

I'd look up the section on the OBC and look all through that.

The only thing that ever beeped in my E30 was the OBC, but that was an hourly clock chime.

I can't imagine it getting below 37deg in the Dominican Republic, and I don't know if the 5ers had that function but thats another thing that goes beep.

OBC function of ICE warning, should show up on your dash with a blinking 37Deg too if that's the case.

Sounds like it's either the bluetooth or this memo clock function yes. Go through the manual on the iDrive system and see what you can find out. I don't know anything about iDrive as of right now. Good luck..
