Hi All,

Last night, walked into the kitchen. I could hear a continuous beep, rather like the alarm on a freezer when the temp. is to high (power cut).

I couldn't work out where it was coming from. Then I went into the garage.
It was coming from my GT-R. What the hell is that?
Unlocking and locking stopped it.

:)
Hi WingedBeast1968,

Did you find out what this was? Mine did this last night, strange noise exactly as you described, and it didnt start until 5+ hours after parking up.. I thought it was someones house alarm, till i looked out last night, unlocked the car/locked and it stopped.

I am thinking of charging the battery? I know my car hasnt been used much in the last year by the previous owner, so maybe the battery has lost charge?

Or did you find out it is something else?

thanks

Chron

I also had this, the morning of the Festive Hoon meet, could hear it from the garage in the kitchen, very high pitched. But was not doing it overnight.

Anyway, I went out to find the passenger window open slightly, closing this and locking the car up again, stopped it.

The question is why did it decide something was wrong, only after several hours of ignition off?

My fave is the "not in park" idea. Maybe the cold affected the switch.

Cheers, and very merry Xmas! :)
Had the same issue myself 2 years ago. Could hear it in the house (adjoining garage). Finally found it to be the car. Unlock, relock, never heard again.

Mine has also done this twice in 18 months of owning. No idea what it is and there was no obvious reason,everything was shut/locked etc.

The first time i heard it was at about 6am one saturday morning when i was off to work. Had no idea what it was,went to work in another car and it was still going when i got home about 4pm!!

Im sure the neighbours loved listening to that all saturday.

On a serious note did you ever found out what it was that was making the beep.

ha ha I like that, It does sound like a kind of weeping/whining noise :chuckle:

Mine has done it that one time when the weather was really heavy rain and very windy, i dont know if this is related to the cause tho, and its not happened since.. I will monitor it.

Anybody ever get a serious answer to this ?

After coming back from a 2 week holiday, jumped into the car pressed the start button and heard continuous beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep - checked everything, no doors open, gear lever in Park etc so started the car and the beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep did not go away.

Have tried again this morning and the same thing, never have had an issue like this in 7 years of ownership and strange that it should start whilst the car is sitting in a nice garage on a trickle charge with a blanket on her !

Help peep and the beeeeeeeeeeeeeeep just wont go away !!

Hi Steve, welcome back.

Well I think the car has finally told you it isn't happy with the colour red and needs a respray to a faster colour - black before it will move!

How old is the battery? One of the cells may be faulty and from experience the GTR electrics can go haywire if the battery isn't 100%. I pushed the launch button once and no start just wipers, indicators, one headlight, dash lights etc flashing at me.

Afternoon

Sounds like the car still thinks it's in neutral

You obviously have to shift into park to stop the beeeeep :)

So either faulty switch/sensor around that area

+ Red ones a prone for it :)

It's definitely not the beep made by the car to tell you your not in park,it comes from the alarm. When mine first did it I thought it was a faulty house alarm somewhere in the street. It's loud enough to wake the dead and very annoying!
