Default sid bonging

hi, brought a 9-5 griffin to replace my 9-5 2.3. but the sid on it had the pixels going. so i thought swap it with the one on my 2.3. so fitted it, turned car on and it started saying service check and bonged five times. i know how to reset the service warning, which i have done. but have no idea why it is bonging.
any clues? thx.

I could be wrong here, but I thought the SID system had to be "married" to you car? Or was it the other way around that items had to be married to the SID system?

I was pretty sure most of the "computer" and stereo equipment short of speakers needed to be married to the car. I was under the impression that the ECU, SID, Radio, CD Changer and TWICE unit all needed to be married, possibly others. If not, how is the dealer gonna gouge you on Tech2 services?

SIDS are nto married. Did you replace it with the smae version SID? THere is a compatibility problem IIRC.

If not it might be a audible warning that is on in this sid ( like seat belt as gghh has indicated)

After it stops boinging scroll through the menus and see what "alarms" are set.

SIDs are not married, but they must be programmed for chassis type, tires, engine type and so on. One Programming option is seatbelt warning on/off.....
