Customer Question
Hi, I have a...

Hi, I have a 2013 W204 200CGI. I have recently noticed a faint beeping sound coming from the engine compartment whilst the engine is running. Any ideas?

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Is it an automatic or a manual transmission?

Auto 61000

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '13 Mercedes?

C200 CGI

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

No

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

I took it to my local Merc guy who had never seen the problem before. He didn't have time to look, but said he was sure the car is safe to drive.

can you clarify what you mean by beeping?

is it similar to the beeping you hear when you insert the key into the ignition?

or ????

No, it is a faint beep, beep, beep when the motor is running.
UK Auto Mechanic: Lou P, UK Car Mechanic replied 9 months ago

ok, there is nothing that would make a beep, i am thinking it is a squeaking noise,

does the noise change if the engine speed is increased?

Customer reply replied 9 months ago
No, it is a beep, same rhythm if you rev the motor. Just a steady beep. Some one suggested a battery on the alarm system. does such a thing exist.
UK Auto Mechanic: Lou P, UK Car Mechanic replied 9 months ago

eh, if you press the panic button on the remote and listen to the alarm that is how it sounds.

is there anything additional installed in the car?

have you had since new?

can you record the noise and maybe make a YouTube video or i can send over an offer to exchange emails so you can send me a sound file or video.

I purchased the car at 18 months, so I have had it a number of years. I am not aware of any additional items fitted. My remote doesn't have a panic. Only Lock, unlock and Boot (Trunk)
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
Can I sign on to this tread later and post the sound? My wife is out with the car.
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
Or send the email offer and I will submit the sound later.
UK Auto Mechanic: Lou P, UK Car Mechanic replied 9 months ago
