Hi folks, had my car for a few weeks now and very pleased with it.
There has been one issue however that has happened twice now.
When it is really icy (struggle to open the door icy!) I'm getting what sounds like a warning beeeeeeeep from the right hand side of the dash. The first time it stayed on for the full drive to work and was gone on the way back (when it had warmed up a bit), this morning the same but it stopped part way into work.
It sounds a bit like the parking sensors telling me I'm about to crash into something BUT it happens in neutral too. I think it started after I opened the boot this morning (start the car then put bag in boot etc), tried switching off and starting again.
It does seem to stop beeping when my foot is on the brake when stationary.
Any advice? Car is a manual with parking sensors and all seems to work as it should.
Hi, I'm a 171 man so this is just a thought as I don't know the 170...
The clue is that the bleep stops when you have your foot on the brake and stationary, this makes me think of the seatbelt warning (but not sure if the 170 has this). Maybe the buckle sensor isn't working so doesn't think you have your belt on.
You say it 'sounds a bit like' the parking sensors so I assume it's a different sound? Do the parking sensors still work correctly when this happens? If so, it will count those out.
