Dear customer my name is***** the expert who will attend you today, I am reviewing your query at the moment you are viewing this message, if you wish you can tell me your name, to know who I have the pleasure to talk to, also if possible I would like you to send me a photo or video in which your fault is better appreciated, it would help a lot to improve my final answer. If you have done a previous check or diagnosis in which you have obtained any error codes, that would also be helpful. Please note that the system will automatically offer you a service call, this has an additional cost to the initial cost of the consultation, and not in all cases it is necessary, so I recommend you to dispense with the call for now, we can continue through this chat without any problem. Thank you very much for trusting in the just answer.

Did the beeping sound occur at the same time the tail light burned out?

Customer: replied 20 days ago.
I don’t know if the light has burned out
Expert:  sebastian manrique replied 20 days ago.

Dear customer, but the bulb is fused, isn't it? Could you send me a video to appreciate the sound?

Customer: replied 20 days ago.
No don’t bother I will take it back to the dealer
Expert:  sebastian manrique replied 20 days ago.

Dear customer, the beep you mention seems to be simply an alarm activation warning, I don't think it has to do with the light that has blown, you should replace the light, the beep I would like to hear it, to know if it is an error indicator or the alarm activation warning, in any case you have to know that the error indicators in cars are usually visual on the dashboard and not with sounds. Only faults in nav sat units or infotainment systems usually give audible fault warnings, the only electronic sounds that usually indicate a fault are sort of clicking sounds related to stuck relays, which is not your case.

Hiya, thanks for your help .. but I fiddled about with the wires on the near side lights, could not find any faults with them, so put everything back together, and to my amazement every thing is ok now, so I’m well chuffed, what I was looking at was the rear fog lights n/ s the wire is there but I don’t think there is any bulbs,
