Hello everyone, Silly question but cant find an answer in the handbooks.

When I switch off and remove the key I get a BING,BONG,BING,BONG like sound. I have never bothered about it as I assumed it was just an overly stupid way to say that I can get out of the car now.

Last week a friend bought the same car as mine (eclass estate 1999 model), but his does not make any sound (mine is a petrol, his a diesel).

I am now wondering if the car is trying to tell me something. I.E doest it have a fault?

The owners manuals don't mention anything as far as I can see.

Is this sound normal?

Cheers

Are all the lights switched off before taking the key out?

Edit Moved because Bing Bong sounds electrical to me!

Probably a Sony headunit telling you to remove the fascia.

Yeah I know, my old sony used to go bip-bop-bip-bop *pause* bip-bop-bip-bop *pause* bip-bop-bip-bop.

Something like that anyway :)

I seem to remember a similar thing on one of our old cars , never worked out what it was tho.

does it turn off almost as if its running out of power to keep going?
