Customer Question

I have a 1974 Buick Electra 225. It has 39,000 miles on it and is in perfect condition. Over the last week I now hear a high-pitched beeping noise similar to what you would hear when your smoke alarm battery at home needs to be replaced. There's nothing in the book to mention a warning beep. This is not the same noise I hear when the keys are left in the ignition. When driving the car there is no beeping sound. When the car is in park and turned off the beep returns. If I leave it in park to reverse with the motor off the beep cannot be heard. Please help losing my mind

My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.My info is somewhat limited on your model here but I had seen no one else has responded and would like to see if I can help here.If at any time you feel that I cannot help with this please let me know.

Inspect for any after market components installed like a remote start or alarm system.If any of these are installed this can cause this type of fault here in some cases needing removed,rewired or replaced.If this is or was already checked for and nothing is found let me know so we can continue before rating my help here.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
