Default What is this alarm trying to tell me?

I'll be driving along and a very melodious alarm will sound, Gong Gong. No idiot lights will come on. I've read thru the manual and see nothing that explains this alarm. Does anyone have an idea what this might be?

If your not seeing any CEL's, & your seat belt is working, check to make sure all your doors are closed.

Mine gives a ding-ding if the turn signal stays on and it didn't reset after turning.

Just an occasional reminder that I drive like an old man.

I get a single "gong" when my fuel level gets in the red.

Not a good idea. The fuel pump (inside the gas tank) is both cooled and lubricated by the fuel itself. Running the tank that low will shorten the life of that pump.

Thanks for the input guys, but it's none of the above so far. The turn signal alarm keeps ringing until I shut it off, the fuel tank can be full and the mystery alarm will sound off, and neither alarm sounds like the one in question.
