3 beeps from a vw polo 2009

While driving i keep hearing 3 beeps [a very low electronic sound] . these 3 beeps happen every few minutes [say 5 or 6 minutes]. i don't know what it is , i've heard it might be something to do with the air bag.... but why would the beeps be so low in volume then? ....i mean if it was a safety issue, then wouldn't there be more warning than just 3 very quiet beeps???

SOURCE: glow plugs electronic stability programme warning lights vw passat

most of the new cars with such computer system to control the engine and other functions , such as brakes, anti-freeze level, that why the light on and tell you that you should watch out certain things, you still can drive the car, but you have to go to the dealer and let them check you car and reset the computer system and then all the light will be off.

Check to see are your brake light working! if not you have a faulty brake light switch - 10 min repair job at your local VW service centre. With no brake lights you'll need to get it seen to ASAP!!

try disconecting the coolant temp sensor and then try, it may be faulty, also check the hall sender unit in the distributor, if it has one, the centre pin should be the signal wire if no pulse is present the sensor is faulty

SOURCE: I hear 5 warning beeps then a pause then 5 beeps again

Get the battery situated, and your beeps should go away. Sounds like an errant security horn from a sloppy connection. Interested to see what happens. TT

SOURCE: MISFIRING ON CYLINDER 1 VW POLO 1.4 3CYLINDER

I have changed a few cylinder heads under warranty for this type of problem. The exhaust valve guides wear, this causes the exhaust valve to seat badly, giving low compression. if one cylinder compresion reading is more than about 50 psi below the others, then this warrants head removal. It is quite a job, due to the fact that the camshft id chain driven. If you are up for it then once the head is removed, poor liquid into the exhaust ports and see if it leaks out through any of the exhaust valves.

Electronic control module


It could be, but I would start with something much simpler like the battery. What happens when you try to start the car. Do you hear anything? If your battery is more than 5 years old it probably doesn't have enough juice to start the car (but it might have enough power to light up all the lights)

I have a 1999 Beetle and When I'm driving My dash beeps like 10 beeps in a row and the inside lights come on but nothing so up on the dash to tell me the problem


Ok, so are you saying NO LIGHTS come on to tell you what issue is on the dash? The beeping you hear is a low oil pressure warning beep. Its telling you that you are either low on oil or that the oil pump is not delivering oil properly to the motor (car is sensing low oil pressure but on these cars there is no oil pressure gauge on dash to look at). Check your oil level and make sure you are not low. Best time is in morning on flat surface start car and let run 5 minutes. Stop car, let sit 5 minutes and then pull dipstick and check level. Also make sure you are using the correct oil and viscosity for this motor. VW's require VW certified oil and a certain viscosity. You can go to www.mobil1.com to find the correct oil available in the states for your vehicle. Too thin or too thick a viscosity could cause similar issue. Otherwise please clarify the light comment as I have never heard of the lights coming on automatically after a beeping noise and I will research.
