Exclamation Random chirping

I have a 2005 Suburban. I hear a chirping sound (like the alarm chirp) at random times while driving. It it intermittent and random. It sounds like it is coming from in the dash. Sometimes while I turn the car off it chirps slightly 3 times. The last episode was while driving a long trip. It started chirping about every 30 seconds. I pulled over, turned the car off, restarted and the chirp dissappeared. I need help.

do you have aftermarket accessories? can you pin point the location of the noise? is it only while driving?

everything is factory, the chirp comes from dash in gauge area. It has not chirped all day. The dealer said bring it in the day it happens and maybe they can locate it. Problem it seems to only happen when I am in a hurry to get somewhere or nowhere near the dealer. Also, sometimes when stopped at a light it will happen when I let off the brake.

I am suffering from this annoying "chirp" as well. It has gone on for many years and I have been chasing an answer...and still am. At first I thought it was the brakes because it started as every time I let my foot OFF of the brake, now it is random and not every time it is driven...it might be a loud chirp or soft chirp, single or multiple...it can be on the passenger side, middle, or drivers side. It is a chirp that will drive one insane! The dealer never hears it of course, yet they charged me literally $500 to check it out for me and had my truck for a week and a half. Also, I went into the store one day, was in for about 20 minutes (maybe longer) and walking back out to the truck it chirped at me. You don't have to be driving it, it just DOES it...randomly...or obsessively, whatever it chooses. Any information would help me, just knowing what it is so I am not cussing at my beloved truck would please me.

I did not. However, I finally traded in my Avalanche so that chirp no longer drives me insane. I miss my truck but not the chirp. Good luck finding out what it is! About 15 years and I could never figure it out and of course it never did it for the shop so they couldn't even take a guess aside "maybe it's your alarm". Best of luck!
