Where's my rev limit beep?

Post by EarlGrey » Sat Apr 29, 2017 9:43 pm

Hi Everyone,
I have never heard the beep and the rev limit since having my Rex from February. I have gone through the instrument cluster diagnostics and can hear the beep when I get to #14 after a second or so and it is set as 'on' but despite this there is no beep when driving?
Any suggestions?

Cheers!

How old is your car? With some of the earlier ones the beep got fainter and fainter and in some cases has disappeared ... either that or you have your music up too loud - or haven't redlined it ;) :lol:

It's 2004.
It have heard it beep during the diagnostic test though. I have redlined it with the music off and actually listening for It but still nothing. Definitely been red lining it too- up to 9k
Is there a way to switch it on and off?

There is no way to switch it on and off. Don't confuse the stereo beep that can be switched off; it's a different thing entirely.

Do a search on RX8Club.com (eg advanced search for 'beep' in title). I had a quick look; lots of discussion but no solution.

Not sure if an ECU reset would help, but worth a try I guess .. I cannot miss hearing mine, but only just, the car is a tad noisy ;)
