I got my rav4ev 2nd hand and it has never made a low speed noise. I remember reading references that there is a low speed noise maker. Does anybody have instructions or information on how to check if mine has one and how to enable it?

Is this something relatively accessible for end users or is this a "find an ev-qualified mechanic" type of fix? (I'm outside CA)

ALL Rav4 EVs have the "pedestrian warning system." It may have been disabled by a previous owner. If so, that is typically done by unplugging the speaker. I believe you would need to re-connect the speaker connector. The plug is in the vicinity of the 12V battery. If I recall you may need to remove the 12V battery for access. You can search it on this forum and get better information, as there were discussions about disabling the noisemaker here.
