    I could be mistaken, but the black doughnut, as you say, seems more to me like a type of primer, more a “sealer”. This is common when ordinary paint, say automotive single-stage paint will come into...

    I got my YDS kit from an independent online merchant - rhymes with fleabay. Ask if they would also throw in a Service Manual too.

    If it's beeping, I'd say you could rule-out a false-alarm or shorted circuit to the beeper. I believe the beeper is directly driven from circuit logic inside the gauge cluster.
