Customer Question
My CTS beeps three...

My CTS beeps three times after i shut the car off while i am still in the car

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your CTS?

2015

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your CTS yourself? What have you tried so far?

It just happened. I just got the battery replaced today so i thought that maybe that might have had something to do with it

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you tested the battery with a voltmeter? And can you see if it's leaking or not?

No

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Nope that's it-battery is not leaking though
