Hi guys I have a query for your vast experiences,

I've got the 3 beeps of death from my 05 T28 2.5 SWb when i flash up the ignition.
No other indication on dash other than battery until starting her up then none.
Had a garage have a look at her and no faults are being output. My top banana mechanic mentioned that it could possibly be a light missing or bulb?
The guy previous to me seems to have removed the interior lights apart from the slider one, could this be it?

Any ideas are welcome!

Nothing came up on vagcom, it could be low battery level, Ginger said something about a new alternator which wasn't, that should make sense to you. T:

Low levels in coolant beeps three times, but also lights up on the dash.

Is it not just a "test" of the buzzer when the ignition is first switched "ON" ? Mine, a 2005 1.9, always done it from new.

Yeah TH!
I'm guessing you're the other top banana mechanic who worked on my van today. Cheers.
I'll keep an eye on the battery levels and see if I can't get some lights in the back, see if that makes a difference..
Still got that rattle at the rear near side though.
Looks like I'll take off all the panels again and maybe get he wife to hit bits while I listen in the cab.

If you leave the indicator stalk switched to either L/H or R/H positions & then turn the ignition switch OFF, the side lights on the selected side will come ON. T:

Maybe a battery low indicator , mine had been stood up for a few weeks and, when it was first started up , beeped twice, never done it before, but,after taking it out for a longish run, all is now ok so, maybe, the battery wasa bit low

Mine makes the 3 beeps if I turn the ignition with my seatbelt off - if I put the belt on first and then turn the ignition I get no beeps!
