Hello, welcome. My name is***** will do my very best to assist you with your question. I apologize if you have been waiting long for a response.
The issue that you are having is a electric failure to the reverse/brake light switch, this is a common failure and results in the issue that you are having. To correct this issue the switch has to be replaced.

Hi Mike,

Thankyou for your quick response to my query. It did resolve itself on its own was frost covering the rear parking sensors! As the weather warmed up it stopped! It did prompt me to get my lights checked anyway and all was well. I thoughr I'd let you know the outcome in case you get more beepy reversing noises when the weather's cold!

Thanks again, Elizabeth
