: My 97-528i Auto beeps 3 times within the first few mile of driving every other mornings without any messages on the dash board.

: I've also had four beeps on the highway without any messages on the dash board.

: Any ideas?


Well.....

If it is cold where you ar on those mornings then it might be the frost warning - is your outdoor temperature readout flashing at the same time?
Other related question - is the temperature reading accurate - if not that may be the problem.

By any chance do you have the "memo" feature set on the On Board Computer (Clock function on the MID). If so then you will get 3 beeps at one minute before every hour - reminder to check the hourly news on the radio.)


Otherwise you have 2 faults. One that the "check control" is trying to tell you about, and the other is a defective readout itself.

Cheers
