Sos noise
#1
Hello guys, i have a berlingo 2009 plate and whenever im driving every 2 minutes, it speaks out ' press and hold button for 2 seconds to call the emergancy services ' i dont have a sos button and its so annoying. When i tap on the breaks it stops and repeats again. Usually happens when breaking as well. Anyone had this problem ??? Thanks

Sounds like it once had a telematics unit fitted and someone has removed some of it and the remaining parts have gone haywire. The telematics on some vans often looks like a satnav on the dash, some people remove the head when the sell the van not realising it's actually just part of a larger system.

You can either trace the main module under the dash and remove it or you may get away with just telling the BSI it's no longer there with a diagbox.

Thanks but when i went to a Citroen specialist they plugged it in and its already deactivated on the BSI its never had a telematic in the van, they said change the break switch because when they was speaking to the engine through the machine the noise would appear when touching the break peddal.. i done that but its still happening..

Where does the 'voice' come from? The Stereo speakers or somewhere else in the dash?

Basically the car think's you've crashed so it's trying to call the emergency services, however it can only do this if it has some kind of telematic unit in it, the BSI etc doesn't have the ability to do it on it's own.

What happens if you pull the stereo out and unplug it? Does it stop making the SOS noise?

A screen on the actual stereo or do you mean the separate one on top of the dash? (I assume you don't have satnav)
