    It sounds like morse code over 70mph, fairly inconsistent gets worse on uneven roads (sounds like the parking sensors with a loose connection is the best description of the sound). Any ideas, how do I disable. I have checked the parking sensors with ignition @ pos.2 holding hand over each - they all work fine.

    fecking talkin about this....I need a method for getting into the 'on-board computer' set-up & be able work on the configuration but if that don't fix it, then a reset on the 'OBC' might solve the problem. Might be worth a try?

    Could the speed limiter be set at 70/75 and that's what your hearing. I don't know if your model has one. The PDC only works in reverse and up to 15mph so it won't be anything to do with that, as previously stated.

    - yes I believe that could be it, any ideas how to turn it off; gratefully received?
