Angry Strange Beeping sound


My 2008 xc 70 makes a loud beeping noise while driving. The beeps are about 0.5s long and occur at random times. Duration between beeps varies randomly and is infrequent, sometimes about one beep every 2 seconds and sometimes up to 10 or 15 seconds between beeps. Rarely the beep sound may not occur at all while driving. Even while listening to radio, CDs or even when the audio is turned off completely the beep sound will interrupt. I have noticed that the word 'mute' flashes on radio display.

I had a theory that it may have been trying to pair with phones but I cannot find any Bluetooth options in the audio settings.

Any help is much appreciated, this is driving me crazy.

Is your car equipped with the BLIS option? I'd start with reading the owners manual on some of the safety features as this may be one of them :-)

If you don't have the manual in the glovebox anymore, you can find them online.

Good thinking although it is not equipped with BLIS.
