so i had the bumper off today b/c i was sick of my a-bar and removed it. went according to rave and the main site and was mainly uneventful. had to cut a slot into one badly rusted bolt to remove it but that was about the only surprise. anyway i reinstalled the bumper and put in new bolts and for some reason after doing it the service engine light went out and the little buzzer when you lock the car resumed working after not working for some time. battery was never disconnected or anything like that whatsoever. didn't touch anything in the engine bay with anything metal at all. actually didn't touch anything in the bay with anything period.
is the car just chiming in with its approval here? what the hell could make the service engine light go out and the buzzer begin working again?

the little noise that goes "toot toot" when you lock the car. it had previously only sounded when superlocking. now it sounds on both. and the ses light was on b/c i'm due for my 90k and that went out too. but i didn't drive it until later so the ses light wasn't mileage related. good news is i got to take a gander at the radiator and temperature probe and tighten a few things down. believe me i'm not complaining!

Mine only makes that noise when a door/window/sunroof/hood is open.

Go see what your instrument gauge is telling you when it goes 'toot toot'.

you're quick magnuss. i was just about to say i noticed i hadn't shut the passenger door fully when i went back out. false alam on the tooting. but it does toot when superlocking always even when everything is closed properly. the ses light going out was interesting though...

Every once in awhile my A/C will ditch the book symbol, but I know **** well that the blend motors still don't work. :think: I think they just like to make themselves feel reliable sometimes...even though we all know better.

the "toot toot" sound only happens when there is a mislock, which would indicate a fault with the locking system. When you superlock, can you hear the locks actuating again about 15 seconds after you press the remote?

Mine toottooted because the bonnet switch is broken. I removed it. It also toottoots when the windows are not set (after the battery has been dis- and reconnected.)

max i'm not sure. i'll have to check. all i know is when i normal lock i hear the locks and get the light flash and when i superlock i hear the locks and a beep with the flashing. the only thing that comes to mind is sometimes i leave windows craked b/c i have weather techs. would that do it. should i not be getting a noise when super locking? everything with the locks seems in order. even the i'm going to lock 60 secs after you walk away.

Do all your windows and sunroof shut if you keep the remote button pressed? ( they need to open of course) only if they don't you may have a window or sunroof that is not set correctly. In affect this would make a miss-lock.
Mine never toots unless something is amiss. Door/bonnet/boot(trunk) or window etc.

Also try locking with the key and holding i the lock position. Most cars here in the states were not set for remote activated lazy lock.

Sadly, most P38s over here only have one touch enabled for the front windows! There are lots of toys that we didn't get over here for "safety"/legal issues.

thank you toad and john for making those points. i guess there are a few things that could make the car perceive a mislock. i do leave windows and such cracked and i do have weather techs that technically keep everything from closing all the way. why does the toot only happen when i press for superlock as i leave the car in the same state no matter how i lock it? god it would be incredible if i could lazy lock and close everything... :pray:
i do try and use the key blade every now and then. and if you give your key blade a very light spritz of wd40 then stick it in all locks several times and pull it out several times (i know...) it makes using them such a pleasure for the next few months.

Something you could do to compansate for your visors would be to jsut disconnect the battery for awhile. This would force a full reset of windows and sunroof to the new "closed" status with the visors in place. As far as lazy lock and one touch bits you would need to hook up with a shop and have these set in your BeCM as active.

You may also be getting the "toot toot" when you superlock from a failure in your Motion/Noise sensor on the driver side B-pillar. If that fails, you wont get a message on the dash, just a "toot toot" to indicate the superlock didn't engage.
