beeping sounds from inside - any ideas?

So, for a month or so my battery icon comes on when engine is off and radio is on. I would assume I need a new battery which I will be replacing in a couple of days. The last couple of days I heard some beeping sounds from the inside. It goes "beep...beep...beeeep" and thats it. It happend twice now. Has anyone here experienced this before? Is this related to my battery gonig bad? Any help would be great. Thank you guys so much.

It could be your car's hourly indicator. Check the clock when you hear it again.

Sounds like hourly chime. Can be changed in settings

Thanks for the info guys. I just bought a new battery and will try to replace it myself tomorrow. Hopefully that will take care of the issues.

Did you check your time settings? It's probably your hourly indicator like everyone else said. You can turn it off. It sounds exactly the way you described. Two small beeps then one long beep.

go into settings and I think it's under clock

I doubt its the battery, your car would light up a warning if the battery was low IIRC.

My radio did that every time I played a CD, and right before it took a dump.
