Rob T,

What he said.

TLS gave a very good explanation. The beeper is just there to let you know the glow plugs are hot and the engine should start when you hit the key. If the engine is warm you probably don't need to wait but it certainly doesn't hurt.

The beeper runs off a time delay when you turn the key. After 3-5 seconds the light on the console goes out and the beeper goes off until the starter begins to turn the engine over. The beeper is just there to make sure on a cold morning you don't start cranking before combustion chamber has some heat in it.

The beeper is connected to the oil pressure switch and goes off if you loose oil pressure so it's probably not a good idea to disconnect it.
