    Continuous Electronic Beep

    Hello all, newbie to the forum and to VW. 😊
    I have a 2016 Polo 1.2 TSI, it’s great, but there’s an annoying electronic continuous beep coming from just below the air filter housing on (O/S) the right hand side, above the alternator, it starts about 5 mins after cold. Anyone had similar? Thanks in advance 👍

    This is usually caused by the corrugated pipe from the fuel tank breather system, there is a revised pipe under part number 04E 133 518 G which costs £27.18

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Thanks Crasher

    I forgot to mention that I'd seen that discussed elsewhere, but this is an electronic beep, which isn't there initially on cold start up, but maybe 3-5 mins after (I need to time it ).

    It sounds more like something has switched on.

    Thanks again.

    Apologies Keithuk, I wasn't aware I had to update my profile straight away, I only joined yesterday afternoon.

    I found the forum via my mobile, but certain things don't work via mobile; when selecting the FAQ for example, the response says "We are sorry, this content is not supported via the mobile style"

    I also responded to Crasher, but got a message back saying it had to be moderated/authorised.

    I am now on my computer and so things are working, so hopefully this reply will be posted.

    Apologies again (I feel stressed already!!)


    Thanks Crasher for your response again.
