Strange beep

On some cold days I have heard a short beep when starting my Ford Focus 1.6 (2002).
Does anyone have a clue where this sound could be coming from and what it
could be signalling about?

Hmm, I had the same problem with my 1.8 zetec, the garage replaced the airbag warning module I think

The beep comes from your temperature sensor, informing you that it's below 4C. Check your handbook.

Not necessarily. My 2002 1.8 Ghia UK Focus beeps on the very odd occasion when the temperature is way above 4oC . My 1999 1.8 Focus did exactly the same. Never did find out the cause and it's never caused a problem.

I thought this was ONLY a feaure of the 2.0 ghia model - when a warning is given on the computer - fuel or outside temp.
Well it did on my one anyway lol
