Just don't have the time to take it in to the dealer and I was hoping to hear some follow-up on this before I have to. Thanks
I have the same exact thing going on. I wonder what it is?

I still have no answer either. I have been to the dealer twice for oil changes and they have not been able to reproduce the sound. It has been less frequent in the Wisconsin winters, and I am still handwashing the car once a week. If I ever do get solution, I will post it here. I am about due for another oil change soon.

You know that's kinda funny, because I didn't hear it until I hand washed the my car the last weekend. Weird

Horns are a switch earth so water is probably shorting them to earth and switching them on. Poor connection = poor beep

Grease wont do ought, as it still doesn't stop the water running over them and shorting them to earth

Need to make a cap or some tape over the top to keep water off as well as cleaning contacts up

That's why its intermittent, each mangled cat sound is a bead of water running over it

but as reported by doodah, it happens occasionally when no water is involved.

He also stated it sounds like an electronic beep - and your noise doesn't sound very electronic/digital to me.

That's also doodah's only post - I wonder if he has an ST? That could very well be something wrong with the sound symposer (or reprogramming something)?
