      Hello! there is this super annoying sound coming from my dash, its like a constant beep it doesn't start right away when i start the car but it will start when i drive for a minute or two. at first i thought it was a seat belt warning but it wasnt

      This is a 1983 jetta ! Any ideas would be awesome!

      if it's a buzzing noise it sounds like the oil pressure warning light
      make sure you have oil pressure. check your level. might need a new sender

      of course upload a video......even though low quality sound from a portable phone is terrible
      atleast we could recognize the sound

      seatbelt?

      check your door switch inside the hinge area
      its probally not detecting that the door is closed
      when you open the door does the dome light come on?
      what if you close the door?

      there is also on the igntion switch a configuration which buzzes when you insert the key and open the door
      when you remove the key the open door stops buzzing.

      one of the relays has a noise maker
      also those electronic clusters have noise makers on the circuit board
