Car beeps three times ever few miles

Anyone have an idea why the car gives off three beeps every 5-10 miles?
I do have auto clear turned on on the JB4 but I don't know if its that. I don't see a CEL come on or any lights.
Car just beeps 3 times and that's it.

The horn is beeping?

Dashboard? Are you approaching red line? Low on gas? Seatbelt?

It could be some type of speed limit warning that was accidentally set. fiancee's RR has this option.... a few years ago when it was in for service, the techs thought it would be funny to set it at 30mph. The car chimed every time we went above/below 30mph.

Not sure if our cars have this option, however...

hmm now this could be it, this would explain why it happens sometimes sooner than later and sometimes not at all.
I get it back from the auto body shop tomorrow. Ill see if this is the case.

If it is, how do I turn it off?

And guys keep the guesses coming please, its defintely annoying

Is it at 120km/hr? If so you need to disable it via coding. I was playing around in my insturment cluster and found a option for it
