Faint beeping noise at any moment

Post by Graeme » Sun Jul 19, 2020 7:17 pm

T-Roc 1.0 litre petrol i-q drive: I keep hearing a faint single beep noise in the cockpit. Sometimes it lasts a second, sometimes 5 or 6 seconds. It can happen at any time at any speed in any gear. I’ve tried disactivating everything I can possibly disactivate (cruise control / blind spot detector / white line detector etc etc) but to no avail. The only thing I’ve managed to establish is that as soon as I take my foot off the accelerator the noise stops. Any one hearing a similar noise ?

Someone on the Spanish forum had it back in June and was taking it to the dealer, he never updated the outcome.
Here's his video, faint beep right at the end of the clip.

I have the exact same car with the exact same problem. Have had it since day one but have not been able to return to dealer yet due to covid restrictions. The noise is coming from the accelerator pedal area, always when my foot travels about 1/2 inch on the pedal and stops when I press beyond that point. The same noise occurs when I release pressure on the pedal when decelerating. Always at the same point. Drives me insane! Will get it booked in ASAP when Covid restrictions are eased

I have a 1.0 T-Roc and I also hear the same noise. It sounds more like a whistle to me, the sort of sound that used to come from brake servo units. My last car, a 1.4 TSI Golf, made exactly the same noise throughout the ten years that I owned it, so I don't see it as a 'fault' that I would have my car pulled about to find the cause of. I do suffer badly from tinnitus so an extra whistling noise doesn't bother me too much. However, if someone was to find the cause and it is a fault, then I would be interested in the 'cure'.

Hey! I have exactly the same noise. Any update from your dealer?

I get a faint beep when starting to move and at random other times - sometimes going over a bump, going round a corner or on the straight.

All sorted now. It happens when the dashcam is overwriting files, which is very frequent.

Glad you're sorted now. The noise that you were describing was obviously different to the peeeeping noise that myself and others were talking about ..... no dashcam fitted in my car.

Great news that you've tracked it down. Are you able to format your dash cam Micro SD card? Or even install a larger one?
