My wife had the battery changed a few days ago. Now when she accelerates during a turn, the bell dings (the three ding bell). Everything else seems to be working good.
I did put the car through the procedure to help the computer relearn again after a battery change.
Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.

It may be a silly guess, but that sounds like a door ajar warning.

Try opening/closing all the doors to cycle the switches & then see what happens, paying attention to the door ajar light to see if it flashes.

Found the brake fluid was just low enough to trip the switch for a split second during turns combined with accelerating.
Thanks for the advise anyway :)

Tx for the update, at least you found the intermittent warning.

Check the front pads now, normal reason for low fluid levels is pads near their wear limit.

Tx for the compliment, that's one that many of us have run into before.

Fluid added just has to be sucked out again when replacing the pads, that's when most learn of the relationship if it hasn't been read somewhere previously.
