Constant underbonnet beep following overheat
Hey everyone..decided to try a more descriptive title so that someone might be able to help me.
Yesterday car wouldn't do over 0.8 bar on the turbo on the final hill up to work (was fine up to this point.
On the way home from work got 5 mins from home..130 degrees on the temp gauge limped it home after giving it 30 minutes to cool down. (weirdly the fan refused to come on thought)
Got to take engine plastic cover off to see if it's obvious as to the problem. But looking at it last night with the key in the slot there is a continuous beep eminating from the passenger side firewall..but not INSIDE the car, but underneath the bonnet. The noise is there if the bonnet is open or closed (just in case these cars have a bonnet alarm of some description) although it's obviously a lot quieter with the bonnet closed.
Any clues before I give variava a ring on Monday?
