A ringing sound
« on: December 30, 2020, 06:21:56 AM »
While driving my Jazz (2019 model) I hear a ringing sound at random. It doesn't happen all the time I take the vehicle out. It seems like the car system is giving me a reminder of something. The speed of the car at the time of ringing is often between 40km/h and 60 km/h. But I am not able to figure out what exactly it is. The service personnel too have no idea about it. Can someone help?

Most modern cars have a range of similar-sounding audible warnings (although most people would describe a beep or gong rather than a ringing sound) which are almost impossible to trace. On the Jazz, the noise is usually accompanied by an indication on the right-hand display but this will disappear after a few seconds. Difficult to say what yours might be, but some suggestions to check out:
- the lane departure warning will beep if you change lanes without indicating (sometimes activated by tarmac seams)
- the Jazz has two user-configurable speed warnings which will beep briefly if you exceed the pre-set speeds (you can change or deactivate these)
- there is an ice warning if the ambient air temperature goes below 2-3 deg C
- the collision warning system can false-alarm in certain situations
- if you use the speed limiter and exceed the set speed (eg when going downhill) the car starts beeping until you brake below the set speed

There is a bong that occurs when the status of the traffic warning information changes if there is a destination set, even if you are not displaying the navigation screen.  Could that be it?

Low fuel warning gives a ringing sound, along with the picture of a pump.

There are just too many rings, dings and beeps. Most do have a dash display which helps

The one that really annoys me is the front parking sensors when you are minding your own at the front and a motor bike pulls across your beam and sets it off till the lights change.
Let's be careful out there!

When one of the rear brake pads on our Jazz wore early it made a ringing / jingling sort of sound - cause by the acoustic pad wear indicator.  Took two visits to the dealer to find it.

I wouldn't have expected that on a 2019 car though.

Just play about with the settings, mine beeps / rings  if I exceed 50mph, I've left it at that as I have a number of 50 speed limits on the A road where I live.
