I have an intermittent "chirp" about every 5-10 minutes

Customer Question

I have an intermittent "chirp" about every 5-10 minutes coming from the dash of my 2004 GMC Yukon. Can you tell me where to start eliminating?

Is the noise just one chirp or a series of chirps?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
one chirp
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
only one chirp, every 5-10 minutes
Expert:  Jared D replied 11 months ago.

Does it have anything to do with driving? Bumps, turns, etc? Or would it do it just sitting there idling? What about with the engine off and key on?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Engine would be running, could be driving and/or idling, but the engine was always running. No turn issue or bump issue noticed.

I have never seen a chirp from under the dash on this model, unless it is coming from one of the gauges. The motors in the gauges tend to go bad frequently on this truck, but they will usually tick rather than chirp.

I'm not sure if I'll be able to diagnose this one remotely unless you can pin down exactly where the noise is coming from.
