Default High constant alarm signal?

When I turn the key to the on position a high-pitched alarm continually sounds I don't know what it relates to because it's not showing any error messages anywhere. We had to eject a few homeless people from the thing they were sleeping in it that we didn't know so it's possible they may have messed something up but I wasn't getting that high pitched alarm sound before when I used the Rialta.

Does the van have backup sensors? Aftermarket sensors often fail in the way you describe, depending on how they are wired. Other possibilities include retractable steps, "antenna up" alarms and such.

It could be the passenger seat is not locked in the forward-facing position. The alarm will sound if not. Try moving the passenger seat to check for the locked position.

if you are trying to pull power from an inverter and the battery connected to the inverter is significantly discharged, you can get an alarm that sounds like what you describe. if you have no inverter, then disregard. otherwise, fully charge batteries and see if there is any change....or disconnect the inverter, etc.
