My Cabrio makes the alert sound - Beep,boop,beep - Beep,boop,beep - It Sounds like La Cucaracha when you first put in the key to start it.

This morning it didn't stop.
It keeps beeping and booping but sounds like it's under water. It's annoying to say the least

    Where do I find this is it under the panel? Near the fuses? Or under the steering yolk cover?
