Exclamation Beeping noise (help!)

Hi, new here and joined up because you guys seem to be a very good source of Honda Civic information. I myself don't drive one, my gf does (I'm at a benz forum to discuss any issues about my car, etc). Because I am on a messageboard for the car I own and got good information from that. I figured this wouldn't hurt.

Here's my problem with her car.

There's this beeping noise that goes off or on at any given time in my gf's Honda Civic, the only way to shut it off is if I turn the headlights on (instead of daytime running lights). It doesn't always happen but it happens frequent enough where I want to get it fixed and resolved asap. It's a 2002 2 door Civic SI. I'm guessing it might be a fuse thing? It doesn't go off every time we get into the car, it's random. The beeping isn't intermittent, it's a constant beep and it's frickin' annoying.

How do I fix this?

It's a 2002 Honda Civic Si, 2 door.

I used to own an Accord back in the day, a 1991 Honda Accord Ex-R, leather interior, 4 doors and it was mint. It had that beeping noise issue too but it was a fuse thing with that car, not sure if it's the same with this one. Her car isn't here at the moment so I can't run out and check, but if it is the fuse and someone reads this and tells me it is...awesome, easy fix.

Did you try closing the door?

Never heard of anything like that. I was thinking along the lines of using the keyless entry. Lights flash twice for my car and has a feature where if you leave the lights on, the car makes a flatline noise until you either close the door or turn the lights off.

DRL?
If you in canada, and the car is US Market, somebody installed an aftermarket DRL system and it would make the headlight beep until it turns the light off.
Don't remember any 02 US car equipped with DRL.
Could get confusing, but Si models in canada are the EX models in US.

I think you may be hearing the relay buzz that occurs when the DRL control module needs to be resoldered ???

The noise would go away when the headlights are turned on as the DRL system turns off.

Re: Beeping noise (help!)

Is it a beeping or a buzzing... if it's a buzzing due to your drl relay this may solve your problem...
