My name is ***** ***** I will try to assist you. Under the passenger side dash is the fuse box. Check the fuses first and see if they are blown. You may have just had a fuse go causing the issue. If not, please explain the beeps. Did the rest of the lights on the truck flash or anything? I'm asking because the only other times I've known of that to happen is there was a bad battery and the internal plate was cracked in one of the batteries causing a short out and another truck that had a bad alternator and was overcharging. It caused the fuses to blow and blow which later cause the truck to have wiring melts. That is why I asked to check fuses first. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________You want a 5 star service and I want to provide a 5 star service.
