Every once in awhile while im driving or just stoped at an intersection sometimes my car makes a quick ding. It sounds just like the seat belt ding if your not wearing it, except it only makes that dinging noise one time. Has this happend to anyone else or does someone maybe know what it might be? thanks..

Hi cOnRoids

Does not happen to me, but I have a diagnostic question:

Does the seatbelt warning light illuminate, when these spurious dings drop in?

Did you upgrade to 22"s wheels without the tire pressure monitors?

Unite, I think your problem is simple as tightening up the cable. Eitehr pull up on the pedal with your foot and wait until you need pads and ask the tech to do it, or I'm sure it's easy enough you could do it yourself (not sure how it's done on these cars).

Happened to me the first few days I had my car, but hasn't happened again. I thought I was kicking the park brake on the way out, but after careful observation, it was apparently a gremlin doing it.

You don't have a navigation trip going or anything do you? Mine was dinging at me on the way home from the dealership, and I think that's what it was. Although I thought the trips were reset if you turned the vehicle off.

If you have the Nav. system there is a maintenance reminder feature for oil change, tire rotation etc... If it was programmed (user) you'll get a "ding sound" to remind you when its time for oil change, tire rotation etc... You also will notice a visual reminder on the Nav screen at the same time it "dings". Could be this.

Car emits a single "ding" when it turns on the low fuel warning light. I've had that light come on before and played hell trying to figure out WTF it dinged for!

Happens to me ALL the time!
Seems like my shoe or pant cuff just touchs the pedal upon swinging my feet in during entry. Just a little design flaw I live with.
Years ago I had a Ford with a plastic tee-handle parking brake release that my pant cuff would catch on all of the time. I moved it an inch and never had the problem again.
Can't move the parking brake pedal in the "C", so when I hear the chime I just flick the release handle. Just the way it is!
