If you have a built in GPS you should check it to see if has any alerts for that or when you are exceeding the speed limit.


That's something to probably bring up to the dealership if nothing else works.

Re: Hearing 3 beeps in Prius 2005

I'd have to say that if this started in 2013 and nothing other than the beeps has happened, I would not worry about it. Particularly if there were no dash notifications. But it is a Prius. Yes, when the dealership says they find nothing wrong, there's only so much worrying I can do about it. I just...

Re: Hearing 3 beeps in Prius 2005

Could it possibly be seatbelts related ? If it's soon after you start the car, it sounds like that might be it. There should be a visual indicator too on one of the displays, though, but maybe not in the 2005. Do you have anything of significant weight on any of the passenger seats ? The warning be...

Are you being funny?? :)

If not, it's a steady beep beep beep, very quick in succession.

Re: Hearing 3 beeps in Prius 2005

I googled it and found this in a Prius forum of all places, which may or may not be of any help. Does your Prius have the "EV mode mod?" https://priuschat.com/threads/three-short-beeps.68977/ The best response seemed to be: It seems the beeps are a signal from the EV mode mod. Maybe somet...

Not the FasTrak device. Thanks for trying to think out of the box.

Re: Hearing 3 beeps in Prius 2005

I've read them before, TravelGeek. That's when I tried changing the fob battery, but that didn't help.

Re: Hearing 3 beeps in Prius 2005

Thanks Jim. I did try replacing the key fob battery a couple years ago when I read that 2 beeps mean the battery is dying. I'll try your suggestion of handing the key fob to someone and driving off. I'm hoping the car won't just die if I drive off without it. :confused

Hearing 3 beeps in Prius 2005

Probably a year after buying my Prius (I bought it in 2012, I believe), I've been hearing a random 3 beeps but don't know why. No dashboard warnings show up. The dealership never heard it whenever I took it in to have it checked out and said they could find nothing wrong. I'm noticing now in hot wea...
