I have had my PHEV for 4 weeks and it has recently started giving a long beep followed by four high pitched short beeps, everytime I turn the car on and when I slow right down, or stop and start again. There are no warning signs/symbols. Can anyone throw a light on what this means? The garage I bought the car from has no idea.

Well... I can't find a table of Mitsubishi error tones anywhere on the net, hopefully someone else will post one on the forum.

However, it is possible that you are getting more than one error there.

The satnav gives of a single low tone "bong" when approaching a curve.
The only visible indicator is a little exclamation mark, inside I yellow diamond, that appears on the top of the map screen.
This happens if the satnav thinks you're going to fast for an approaching curve. (As far as I can see, it is VERY conservative)

You can turn that off by getting into the Nav menus:
NAVI MENU key
Type
Guidance
Curve Guidance (set to off)

The other one could be the seatbelt warning...

Any chance that you're putting something on one of the seats?

It's also possible that you're getting a warning sound, because an indicator light is faulty (I have no idea if our cars do that or not).

One way to check that is to ensure that all indicators are lit when you first turn on the car.

Similarly, could be a door open warning.

I have found that many of the warning symbols are really subtle. If you are getting the warning while stopped, look hard at all the symbols on the dash. The door warnings are indicated by a single line, on the car icon, intended to show that a door is open.

Similarly the sonar alarms are a tiny graphic which indicates the sensor that is triggering. (Little lines being emitted from the car icon)

Maybe we should start a list of audible warnings and get one of the admins to paste it up as a sticky topic?

Some examples to start:

Audible Warning When it happens Explanation
Single Chime After pushing the start button Ready to start
High pitch, rapid triple beep, after pushing the start button and trying to select Drive or Reverse - Not ready for Drive or Reverse yet.
Six pairs of chimes (ding-ding, ding-ding, ding-ding, ding-ding, ding-ding, ding-ding) after pushing the start button - someone is not wearing their seat belt.
Continuous single chimes - Door open (check dashboard to see which one)
Really loud external triple beep, three sets of three - the car is still turned on, and you have taken the keyfob away!
Mysterious low bong sound while driving - satnav things you're going too fast for the approaching corner
Machine-gun staccato beeps when trying to lock the car - one of the doors is open.

Hmm... the forum says that BBCode is on, but I couldn't format the above as a table...

thanks for those suggestions, but none apply. And it is definitely one warning sound made up of one long beep immediately followed by four short high pitched ones.

Can you record it and post it?

It's none of those sounds/beeps. I've recorded the sounds - but I don't know how to attach a wav file.

I think you need to put the file on a public server, and then add a link to that server, via the URL button above the comment window.
