[Warning Light] Beeping while driving at speed
#1
A weird thing happened to me last night on the way home along the M1

The beeper/buzzer kept going off randomly. Sometimes they were 10 seconds apart, sometimes 30.. then 3 would go off together, etc. There was nothing wrong, no warning lights or scary temperatures or anything. The van drove just fine.
This was at 70mph. I then got to a stretch of 50mhp limit and all through that the beeping stopped, but when i increased to 70 again it started.

The only possible causes i could think of aren't very probable, but:
The service lights have been on for a while
I have led headlights (expensive ones with the chip unit in that have never been a problem)

Does anyone have an idea why it would do that?

Might be something to do with a speed sensor (VSS/ABS)

I have done this a few times, if you have your hand on the passenger seat or some stuff on it, apply enough pressure and it will set off the seatbelt sensor. I sometimes try and play tunes with it when I'm bored in traffic. If you feel around you can feel the sensor....

What speedlimit switch?

& why would the passenger seat sensor only cause a problem at speed?

Only time ours has beeped was when my seatbelt was not done up properly and when the airbag light came on and I had to wiggle the connector under my seat to put it back off. Neither of them was speed related.
So where does this bit go then ?
