Beeping tone
« on: April 11, 2016, 08:45:45 PM »
Hi all I just changed the front brake hoses on the galaxy and bleed them the resovior is full of fluid and brakes feel good I have also changed the oil and filters and installed a new intermediate drive shaft.
What I can't work out is why when the car is driving I get a audible warning as soon as I stop the sound stops?
Got me stumped as it didn't make these sounds before I started fiddling.

Have you got any fault lights or warning messages?

What is the source of the noise? The instrument cluster or the fusebox or somewhere else? And is it a continuous tone or does it vary?

As you have done brakes it's not low fluid level noise is it?

Hi guys thanks for the reply but this issue is now solved.
I had the car on stands and was running the wheels to test the intermediate shaft, after thinking about it for a while I realised what a plonker I have been.
I realised I had the hand brake on and the galaxy didn't like that so was warning me to it lol.
Anyway thx again guys

Slight turning of wheels confused it then?
At least it's all ok and no further issues that need sorting
