Hi All,

Long time lurker here.

I have 2016 2.5 NA with CVT with about 45,000km on it (28,000 miles) and I started noticing a strange beep noise when starting in the morning (cold engine) or stop/starting in traffic (warm engine).

I have searched for similar symptoms in the net and suspect the battery is close to the end of the lifecycle, but not 100% sure.

Although this doesn't happen all the time, but getting close to happening once every 3-4 start.

I managed to record it on my phone and uploaded to YT as below:

It beeps shortly after the 1 second mark, followed by engine starting sound.

Any thought? Thanks in advance...
