My Honda city hybrid has one "Tak" sound when engine change from electric-> petrol -> electric ... anyone has this issues?Try put your phone near the tak sound and record it. Mic facing the Tak sound, not camera facing Tak sound. Use video record because microphone app will filter the sound and rubbish quality.
It may be normal gearshift or engine start/stop vibrate or something else entirely.
Is it louder than fan speed 2 aircond ? Roughly what fan speed loudness the short "Tak"?
Is it louder than Left/Right Signal indicator Tik Tik Tik Tik Tik ?
Is it always got sound when EV>Pet>EV ?
Does your car slow down abit when got the sound ?
You should only hear *electric whiny noise* WRRRRRRHHH -> *engine noise*PRRRRRTTTT, when EV>Pet under moderate accel. Signal indicators are about the same or slightly louder than these two sounds.

Manual says it's to be used when you have heavy load at the back, which will angle the Front of the car upwards. (Back heavy, front aim up -> blind people)
I think they mentioned 150kg behind put to '1' or something like that. But ehhh malaysia..., just F it. Everybody blinds everybody, end up motorcyclists suffer the most...
Button is like he said.

To clarify abit more, EV cars at low speed, got no sound. People cannot hear cause no engine noise to alert them, EV only tyre crunching gravel sound.
One scenario is if got 3 cars in a line, [Petrol] [ EV ] [Petrol], blind people (and also people glued to smartphone) won't be able to hear the EV cause no sound and other 2 car engine sound overpower EV sound.
So... regulations says need make noise to alert pedestrian.
From interior can't hear difference.
No need touch this button at all really.
