Hi raija, I had same beeping just moment after starting and other time around 30km/h. Changed today battery for key (CR 2032), thats all, beeping gone. Advice for future for others, continiously driving with this beeping alarm will end that car will be locked up with any chance to continious riding.
Next step in this case.evacuator to dealer. Other amount of beeping signals show that security stick has low battery. I changed both batteries to avoid poblems, car from august 2018.

Thanx Inese!

I will change the battery for key. Maybe tomorrow. I have to buy the CR2032 battery.

But I don't quite understand what is the other battery I changed. Can you explain little bit more, please (my English not so good ;)

Other battery cr2025 was for additional cheft security system remote, probably you not have it, It was installed at dealer center to get lower insurance payment.

smartly,
I was thinking of doing so, but I still want to test it first with an "old" key.

Inese,
Aha, you are right I do not have the additional theft security system.

postscript:
I changed the batteries to both keys (in use and spare) and now C-HR seems to work fine. No beep-beep any more. This means I don't have to drive 80 km to Toyota maintenance, spend there few hours and then drive back another 80 km. :D

Thanks to all of you!

I think Toyota Finland (importer, dealer, maintenance etc.) is more engine repairman than software specialist ;)

I will spread this information (about the key battery, not my opinion about Toyota Finland) to the people who should know it to avoid situation like mine.

The beeping started again

Post by raija » Sat Feb 08, 2020 11:24 pm

The beeping started again, and I don't know why this time. Last time it helped when I changed the battery in the keyfob but now it doesn't help.
I have changed the batteries not only once, not twice but three times (each time a different brand batteries). At the moment, Varta batteries are in use.

I have asked Toyota Finland about this, but they do not know the reason for beeping sound. The nearest Toyota service is 80km away and I am not going to go there just for the warm handshake.

This makes me insecure about driving a car becauseI startle when c-hr beeps. I don't care if the sensors are frozen or something because there is a clear reason for those alarms.

I know some designer has make this alarm sound for the car, but nobody seems to know what it is. Why don't they care about the customer or are they stupid ?! If only I knew, I'd send the mp4 file to Toyota's design department to find out why the car is beeping.

(I'm saying in video: again it beeps randomly)

ps. Aha, I cannot send mp4 file. Which format is permissible?
pps. I reduced the file -> 3.2 MiB and changed it from mp4 to avi file but still cannot upload
