I have some more info. The beeping starts when the key is inserted into the ignition and is suppose to stop beeping while the engine is running. Start beeping again when the engine is shut off and finally stop beeping when the key is removed. My elise starts beeping when the key is inserted into the ignition, continues beeping while it is running , continues beeping when the engine is turned off and doesn't stop until the key is removed from the engine. ideas of the cause?. The sound originates behind the drivers seat below the speaker.
