Beeping when backing up

Is there anyway to disconnect the annoying beeping when the car is in reverse? I don't understand why it is inside the car and not on the outside.

Hi pam from the uk ! the reverse signal/beep can be disconnected however there are different methods of how the beep is operated ? in uk some cars have the reverse light bulbs that are also a beep sounder when reverse engaged ? orthe sounder may be a seperate sounder unit at the rear located either in boot? or behind rear fender? or as you mention beep sounds inside boot area?? the sounder may be hidden behind one of the side panels in boot? if you put ignition on and select reverse then try finding beep location? if/when you find it? just disconnect wirefrom sounder and make sure reverse light/s still remain on tape up the wire disconnected out of way? if it is the bulbs that bleep? you will have to remove and fit an ordinary type bulb usually a flasher/ indicator bulb? hope this is of help and inspires you to diy ? best wishes

I just bought a 2005 Prius..what are some tips for a new Prius owner? Things I need to know? Also can I turn off the beeping when in reverse?? Its annoying! Thanks

you have two coolant systems on a hybrid. both systems should of had the coolant changed (due @100k). Spark plugs should of been changed (due @120k). those re the two high mileage maintence items I would be sure were done. Toyota dealer can change the beep to a single beep instead of a constant beeping.

How do you disconnect a reverse beeping signal on a 2006 Toyota Sequoia?

I have found the beeper wired into the reverse lights and if you just find the beeper and cut off the wire and cap it you should be fine and no more beep.

Sounds like a reversing beeper has got a problem in the circuit. Check for a reversing switch on the gear box or linkage. Once found disconnect it.
If the problem goes away you may need to replace it as it might also activate the reversing lights.
Good Luck

How to disable Prius back up beep

This is a pretty easy fix.

1. Keep you foot on the break and turn the car on.
2. Press the odometer/trip button until your dash displays the odometer mileage.
3. Turn the car off and while keeping your foot on the break, restart the car by pressing the on button.
4. Immediately press and hold down the Odometer/trip button for at least 10 seconds.
5. While still holding down the Odometer/trip button put the car in reverse. You will hear the reverse beeping. Then push the park button.
6. You can now release the Odometer/trip button and if you keep pushing the button you can toggle the beep to come on or turn off by looking on your dash. It should say "b-on" or "b-off".
7. Toggle it to the "b-off" setting and put your car in reverse and that annoying beep should be turned off.

How much freon goes in a 2000 nissan maxima my proble, is when my car is sitting still my compressor cuts off when i start back moving it start back blowing

As for how much freon, you'll get the coldest air letting them "pump" it to a pure "vacuum" and then fill it will 100% Freon (you never want to "top it off" ...which many do and somehow get away with it). I don't understand what you mean about the A/C compressor though. If it IS misbehaving most likely the sensor that tells it to pop on and off is likely worn out. (I don't have my Nissan info handy so that's as far as I can take you anyway!) :=) Good luck.

Is it possible to take reverse gear from one trani to another?? Thank you.

I suppose it is possible. I don't understand why you would want to do it. I would strongly recommend not to. Take it to a shop that understands transmissions and they will fix it up for you.

The switch will be in the door jam on the body and probably has a black rubber boot covering it. The switch may just need replacing. Once removed you will see the two wires attached to it.
