    Removing the irritating Speedo Noise

    In my CT, once you hit over 130km an incredibly irritating buzz can be heard. I usually drain it with music...Anyone know a way of removing it....

    Apparently it only takes seconds to do - you just have to know where to look!

    Thanks!

    Re: Removing the irritating Speedo Noise

    If memory serves me right, there was a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) about wind noise coming from the front windows. I believe they had to replace a small part.

    I would check with the dealer.

    Re: Removing the irritating Speedo Noise

    Thanks Matt, but I think we are talking about different things!

    I am talking about a factory installed Siren - which automatically goes off once the car hits 130km. It's a speed alarm - to tell you you are going too fast!

    Re: Removing the irritating Speedo Noise

    I didn't know these came on customers cars. At the dealership we have Cayenne Loaners and they have buzzers that go off once you hit 70 I beleive it is. You are right, It is very annoying. If you want I can ask the service manager when I go in on Thursday?

    Great! Would love that...please let me know!!

    Re: Removing the irritating Speedo Noise

    is it the speed limiter noise? I can tell u how to fix it. YOu can change or remove it

    Re: Removing the irritating Speedo Noise

    You can manage the speed limit alarm on the PCM unit.
    Press trip and choose limits.

    Re: Removing the irritating Speedo Noise

    Ahh, speedo, not speed it is. Sorry for that.

    Make sure to check all places where you can set a speed limit for notification. One is the PCM as others already pointed out. But there's a second one, which you can set/change/turn off through the Multi-Purpose-Display (operated through the rocker switch at the wiper stalk). Go into the "main" menu and then "limit". The two limits are independent from each other.

    Re: Removing the irritating Speedo Noise

    You can remove the sound but it has to be at your dealer. Here in kuwait we have 2 annoying sounds. one for the seatbelt not on and the other for above 130Km/h. You can only remove one or the other but not both its supposedly for your safety . SUCKS i know, but thats only solution.

    Re: Removing the irritating Speedo Noise

    Hi Guys,

    This is definitely not a PCM unit issue...It's a hardware configuration. Deetz, do you know the hardware that needs to be removed or unplugged? My dealer tells me it takes only a few seconds to do it - therefore perhaps it's under the hood?


    Fireo, I can see the need to remove the Speedo Buzzer, but surely not the seatbelt! I never drive without it - even if it's just down the road!

    It would help us a lot if you'd tell us WHERE in the world you live. Do you hear only that sound or do you also see some sort of number/warning on the PCM screen?

    Re: Removing the irritating Speedo Noise

    I went to the service and i asked them to remove it, and they did. :S but when i asked them to remove the seatbelt alarm, they said on 04 model we cant, so there u r just take it to the service and they will do it to u

    Re: Removing the irritating Speedo Noise

    It's the most annoying sound as well! I always ask the dealer to shut it off when I buy a new car.
