Hi, is the car fitted with a towbar and electrics ? If so could be a wiring fault activating the beeper for the towing indicators. I would check the towing socket fist for corrosion/water ingress

Has it ever had a towbar fitted,if so has the wiring just been cut off, there are different wires for each side indicator. Where is the beeping noise coming from ?

Sounds like a ground fault in the indicator switch that's setting off the headlights warning buzzer.

It's not a Jimny. It's my Jimny

. Could be a faulty indicator unit, just listened to mine and the unit clicks when the indicators are on in the location you described

Could it be the barrel? It beeps when you leave your keys in the ignition and open the door

My Renault Nee-San stated doing that, drove me mad until I asked in the forums, and someone said "Put your bag on the floor" :)
Turned out it was the seatbelt beeper for the passenger seat, my work things weren't heavy enough to set it off, except when going round corners....

If it suddenly breaks, go back to the last thing that you did before it broke and start looking there :)

Hi All

Thanks for all the ideas on what it might be, i'm going to see if i can find out if it's had a tow bar fitted at some stage as i feel this could be the issue , just gone out and checked it again and it's still there but has gotten quieter and previous to what i said before the beeping seems to be coming from the rear, it can also be heard from outside the car. Anyway what's the point in having a car if you can't tinker with it :) :) :)

All the best

Then that is going to be one of those beepers that you fit when you fit a towbar, to tell you the trailer indicator is flashing. The connections are usually made behind the rear side panels, they are easy enough to take out with a trim tool. Have a search on here, I know there are photographs of taking the rear side panel trim out.

If it suddenly breaks, go back to the last thing that you did before it broke and start looking there :)

I wonder why it doesn't do it on left turns?

Do it right - use Hammerite
When the blue light is flashing I am kidding.
