Customer Question

When I put my ignition key in my Skoda Citigo there is one loud, high beep. Not seat belt or low fuel (different, lower sound anyway). No warning light staying on. Happened for the first time today. It's a 2012 model

Do you have a push to start switch system .

Don't really understand what you mean, but I don't think so. Usually, just turn the key to start. But this "ping" sounds as soon as I put the key in, before I do anything. If I was deaf I wouldn't notice any difference whatsoever.

Do you have a stop start system .

If I knew what you meant I could say yes or no. But I already said I don't know what you mean.
Expert:  Greg replied 1 year ago.

Okay sorry ,when you stop at the traffic lights and press on the brakes the engine switches off and when you let go the engine switches back on .

Expert:  Greg replied 1 year ago.

Will the engine start ,

We have one here that has this high pitched buzz and when the engine starts it stops, because on this citigo its a problem with the stop start system.

It stops before the engine starts. It only lasts a second or so.
