Harman Kardon entertainment system

Hi everyone.
Is there anyone out there that has the Harman Kardon entertainment system in their Sportage that has figured out how to turn off the Battery Warning message and beep which after a while (10 minutes or so) seems to come up every 60 seconds or so. This is seriously annoying, I don't mind the message as much but that beep has to go, it sure messes with the enjoyment of listening to a nice sound system. I don't sit there for hours without the engine running, but 30 to 45 minutes while my wife is in for a doctor appointment and so on, I like siting in the car and listening to music while I wait and I have no intentions of running the engine for this purpose considering the price of gas.
It would be nice if car manufacturers would have some consideration for the people buying these vehicles in the form of being able to turn on or off features or warnings we have no use for or are just plain annoying and are becoming a frustration. I wonder if there's a easy way to hack into the software of this entertainment system and turn this off since I can't find it in any menu driven option and I've looked thoroughly.
Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.
Take care

Regards: Jack

I think I have the beep part figured out.
It's in the sound settings, at the top right, there's a "Beep" setting, I turned that off and now I seem to just get the visual battery warning but NOT the beep, the unfortunate part is I also no longer get beeps when doing key presses on screen (which I kind of like, when I here the key press beep, I know the key press was registered). I am including a picture of the screen where the "Beep" option is, it's number 5 on the picture.
Now I can listen to my music in peace! lol
Take care

Regards: Jack

I've seen it so many times I don't remember WTH it says but I HATE the warning that comes on EVERYTIME you start the vehicle.

Hi SSportage. Agreed, so unfortunate they are such a nice vehicle with so many minor annoyances that cannot be turned off!
Kind of funny thinking about it, it's the first vehicle I've ever owed that is pretty close to being fully loaded and I have a lot of the fancy stuff turned off! (outside mirrors folding in and out when walking by the car, the auto liftgate opening just by standing there, etc). I think I still have the greeting message thing though, might as well have the thing greet me and make it happy! (lil puppy syndrome) LOL.
Take care

Regards: Jack
