Check that this is part of the alarm actuation system. The same as flashing lights when you lock the doors

First thing first. Disconnect the battery, leave it alone overnight & then reconnect. If the beeps keep on coming the alarm sensor trigger has got stuck somewhere & a service station equipped with computerized diagnose, will be able to pin-point its location......sodeep

Do you hear a slight click coming from the engine area??? If not your starter selenoid is bad, and needs replacement. If you do hear a click but the engine is having trouble or slow very slow time turning, then it's your battery. If you hear your starter click, but no turn, then its your starter not turning over. If your instrument lights dim out by alot when trying to turn, then it still your battery which is drain. The battery doesn't completly need to be drain in order for your horn, lights to not work, It could be your battery simply drain and doesn't have enough cranking power to roll over the starter. But in this case issue description, It sounds like it is the starter. Could take it out and bring it to autozone and have them test it out.

The oil filter is on the right rear of the engine. The attached photo, viewed from the center rear of the engine shows the oil filter cover, which black, circular, and about 3 inches in diameter. There is a special oil filter socket wrench (64 mm, 14 flats) that mates to the 14 flat spots around the circumference of the filter cover. You can also see on the lower left, a spring loaded tab, ostensibly to prevent the filter cover from unscrewing and falling off.
Note that this is a "cartridge" filter, so what you are seeing in the photo is the filter cover, not the filter itself. After unscrewing the cover, the actual filter will be inside the cover when you remove it. The new cartridge filter should come with a new O-ring, which you will place on an indentation on the filter cover. Be sure to liberally lubricate the new O-ring with clean oil. Then insert the new filter into the cover, and screw the cover back into the engine. Be very careful that the O-ring stays in place in the cover indentation, and does not slip out to the cover flange. This happened to me once, and even though the cover was properly torqued, when I started the engine, the O-ring popped out and oil sprayed everywhere. The oil filter cover flange should mate right up against the engine, without the O-ring (or anything else) in between. I don't particularly like this design because it makes oil changing a little more tricky than the old fashioned spin-on filters.
I raised the front wheels about 5 inches using ramps. Without raising the vehicle, I think it would be extremely difficult to get under there to access the filter.
