It's the "freeze alert"... it's in the instruction manual, assuming your car has one in the glove box.

It is warning you that temperatures are approaching freezing point, so you should watch out for ice patches on the road. And, as the signs say, "bridge freezes before road surface" due to wind chill. At 36 degrees, a bridge may be icy.

Might be trip computer... beeps when temp drops below 36 deg. F

You know, I've always wondered why the hell it does that. Why 36? WHY 36!?!? WHYYYYYY?
