'Bong' sound?

Hi chaps

I had just finished installing a new'ish' fan motor as my old one was the noisiest I have ever heard in a car!

I took the car out for a quick spin, to see if all was still okay with the replacement fan, when I heard what can only be described as the same 'bong' sound as when an air stewardess presses the overhead service button!

This happened three times within around ten minutes. No lights came on the dashboard, very strange. Any ideas oh wise ones??

Hi I think that's the Sat Nav heavy traffic warning bong. If u used the sat Nav and didn't exit it makes that sound. It scared the crap out of me when I first got my car.

Hope that's the fix for you..

Ah! That would make sense. It was a very busy road and rush hour traffic.
Just as well it made the noise really, I would never have realised it was heavy traffic by myself
Thanks Mark
