So a few days ago, I started my 2016 Civic. It beeped three times as it does if I hit a function on the screen that it disagrees with. I thought I accidentally touched the screen. As I backed out it did it again. I proceed down the road and it keeps doing it. After about a mile or so it is beeping frantically. I pull over, shut the car off and restart it and it had stopped. Hadn't done it again until tonight. There are no lights or warnings on the dash. Anyone have any idea why it might be doing this? I've already had the stereo volume control on the steering wheel replaced, the touch screen replaced, and now I'm having this issue. I really am starting to wonder if my dream car is actually going to be a nightmare. :(

I had this exact thing happen to me a couple weeks ago. I was parked and I was playing around with the touchscreen when it happened, but it was kind of a delayed response as it happened a few seconds after I had stopped playing with the screen. I have no idea what was the direct cause , it eventually stopped. As a precaution I went back into the settings menu and I reduced the touch sensitivity of the screen so it is not overly sensitive. It has been good ever since. I previously had the screen set up for higher sensitivity, I have now lowered it. I don't know if that is related but I have not had an issue since.

may or may not be related since i'm in a 9th gen. recently....like in the last 2 weeks, i've had an issue with beeping (quick beep-beep-beep, few second pause, then beep-beep-beep). what i found was for whatever reason, is my phone is connecting to the car's bluetooth system and it like gets stuck in a continuous loop for who knows why. the touchscreen becomes unresponsive (none of the 'buttons' work)

anyways, i turn bluetooth off of phone and disconnect from car. press to turn bluetooth on again...and it works normally.

again, i've got 55k miles on this and i've never had this issue until few weeks ago. car has not been to shop/dealer for few months....so, it isn't something new on the car...wonder if it's a phone software issue. (galaxy S5 with Android version 6.0.1)

This is one of the reasons why I can't wait for brands like Apple, Samsung, etc to get involved in the automotive game since you really don't hear about people complaining about stuff like this with smartphones. The only main complaint is Androids respond to anything meanwhile iPhone screens response only to human touches.

This issue hasn't happened again so I assume it fixed itself.

MY 2017 just starting doing the same thing; did you ever determine a fix?

I have had the issue arise several times on 2016 Civic Touring. I haven't tried lowering the sensitivity, that might be a good idea. Things I have tried that clear it up for a month or more:
1. Uninstall and reinstall phone as describe above. I have a Samsung S6.
2. Try cleaning the screen (with the car turned off). Accumulation of dirt, dust, fingerprints seems to affect sensitivity.
3. Restart the car and reset the head unit (hold power button in to reset)

if the dome light and map lights are turned on or off it will set off the beeping,, the interior light switches have to be set in the correct position,,, it stopped all the fast beeping in my 2018 civic si

One slight possibility...If your key fob is in your pocket (like I keep mine when driving) it might be that something is pressing on the fob buttons to make it react like that. I had once that while my 2018 Hatchback was turned off & parked, all of my windows & the sunroof opened up when I was nearby, as because of the way I was sitting on my front porch, the fob in my pocket had buttons pushed in, that triggered it to do that command without me realizing it. Sort of like butt dialing your cell phone!
