Is it the ultrasonic sensors?
I believe my car only beeps at me when I'm in drive or reverse (never tried neutral...) and something gets too close to my car - including a stream of water from a hose / undercarriage wash at a car wash.

Unless you mean the horn is honking. If that's what you mean, it's because the car thinks you're re-locking the doors with the IA pad... try washing it without your key in your pocket?
