Beeping Signal when I hit the breaks in traffic

6 posts in this topic

Hello Guys!

I have a 2008 smart 451 diesel.

 

today when i started driving i noticed that when i hit the breaks in A or 1, the car starts making a beeping wheeping noise almost like the one when you dint have the seatbelt on but continuous and without pauses. It only happens when the car Comes to a complete stop. It stops beeing when i take my foot of the break or when i put it to N or pull the handbreak. Its not coming from the brakes it sounds like its coming from the actual car Dashboard itself as a warning sound im guessing? 
 

It does not beep when i hit the brEaks moving, it only beeps when the car stops at a red light for example. 
Its very stressful in heavy traffic obviously

 

any ideas of the causes and the fixes? 
could it be a break warning signal? 
no warning lights on the dashboard

Have you checked the brake fluid level and or do you have to push brake pedal down to the floor to stop?

The brakes work perfectly as they always did, this happens just when i touch them. Also, i just realized this happened after a shorter drive today. Later on i took a longer drive (20-30 minutes) and it didnt make the sound anymore

ive got no idea then...pretty sure when my 450 did that long ago it was either corrosion in the white connector just forward of battery...or my brake light switch
