Quiet beeping noise driver side

So today I heard a very quiet but not normal beeping noise that beeps every 2-3 seconds coming from the front driver side. When driving highway speed I can't hear anything.
Has any one hear the beeping noise during slow speed and on park?

I have a chirping sound coming from sometimes under the steering or sometimes it's the passenger side. Can't figure out what it is. Has taken it in to show but it never cropped up. It's usually when I'm parked or in slow moving traffic.
Have not figured it out what it is. Anyone have any clue?

Is this a click or a beep? Sounded like a click.

On my older Nissan, several people have issues with actuators in the heating/cooling system.

Could that be the issue? Does this happen when you are switching the air to the different vents?

Clicky noise, not beep. It makes the same noise when manually switching vents. With AC in auto, it clicks every few seconds (can keep going for several minutes or longer), but I'm not actually feeling any airflow changing.

That sounds like an issue with the actuators.

To add (from my Nissan knowledge though it should be applicable), the actuators control things like direction of airflow (face, windshield, feet, etc.) but also how much hot/cold air to mix (this was called the blend door on my Nissan).

The blend door was responsibile for exactly the symptoms you describe. Basically it is not mixing the right volume of cold/hot air to give you the desired temp.

I do not have this issue on my X3Mc, which is pretty much the same as the G01. I would not take the dealer's answer. Mine blows hot or cold with extreme prejudice depending on what I select for the temp.
