I feel stupid asking this but after a quick search and asking other people I couldnt find the answer... So, when you start up your Tree Fitty GT, after about 5-10 seconds it makes a ding sound. What does this ding mean!?! lol - It also dims the music for a split second just to do it aswell.

Start panicking when the Japanese woman starts screaming at you for leaving the foot brake on.....:grinno:

lol - have not had that one yet thankfully.

Im sure the first time I took it for a test drive the gas was low and there was some Japanese women tellingg me about it but only ever heard that once.

Previous car got angry when I pulled a handbrake on a gravel carpark o_O

So, just curious...regarding the members who are having this issue....do you drive manuals or automatics?

Just wondering about the manual vs auto, but maybe that doesn't matter. From what I understand it sort of normal I guess. It might have something to do with the timing chain and the tensioners though. I had my timing gear assembly replaced at the same time as my clutch and flywheel, which the flywheel teeth had some wear. I don't have the "single ding" sound anymore now. The research I read a while made it sound like it was normal though.

Its an odd one, never had any kind of ding on my manual, other than the annoying key in lock and door open chime, which I never could find a way to disable despite studying the manual, I believe the "ding" is either in the dash cluster, or buried deep in the dash but I couldn't find it.

So it looks like its only Autos that do it?

If so will have a look next time I'm out in it, might coincide with the A/T check light going out, if it does looks like its just a ding to say all ok.

Interesting, so we have found its an auto thing only but who knows what lol... Um sure its no issue either, I'm just so during what it's actually telling you.

It is a mystery indeed.....
I timed it today and it takes about 40 seconds after ignition in auto or tiptronic,
So all lights on dash had disappeared,seatbelt was on,footbrake was off, so it definitely isn't a warning of any kind.
It doesn't worry me but I'm very curious about it now.....

If you open the pop up screen after turning the ignition on the power comes on and that's when the ding happens, so it must be to let you know it's ready to use...
