When I start my car, a fast higher pitched rapid beeping goes off for about a minute. It also happens when I turn off my car. This has never happened before, what could this mean?

Bring it in to your local auto parts store, and have them scan the cars computer. most car parts stores do this for free.

SOURCE: There is a high pitched squealing noise on the passenger side

I would first try the pulleys by either spraying some lubrication on one and if the squealing stop I would replace that pulley if not try lubricating the other pulley. You can also use a stethoscope to listen and pinpoint which pulley it is. This is a common problem with the cabs I work on.

SOURCE: truck sometimes starts and sometimes wont. i hear a clicking soun

Unbolt and clean your battery terminals if dirty or corroded, preferably replace the bolts (good auto parts stores stock them, and they take some effort to remove and replace them but it's necessary to properly clean the terminals anyway) charge, jump or replace battery ... connect battery terminals and don't over tighten ... start the truck, check charging system gauges confirm charging voltage over 12V 13.8V-14.5V and lights should be bright as normal ... if so, you may be fixed ... if not you have charging system issues, that will be the next post if needed.

SOURCE: In response to clarification request Honda 2005 ...The sound

IT sounds like the whining can be comming from gears that are not being well lubricated, especially when the sound increases as the car warms up.

You will need to check the fluid level for your transmission. Make sure it is adequate for this model (you may need to reference the owner's manual).

I'm not sure if this van has a differential in a place where you can check it. Bad news, you may need to visit a Honda dealer. Try to get them to diagnose the problem, then tell them you don't want it fixed. Most shops will diagnose for free, some will charge you the labor time for a minimum of 1 hour.

sorry not better news...

SOURCE: intermittent non-starting caused by high pitched whirring when key turned in ignition

hello gwolfson...from your explanation it sounds like the starter motor is turning but the bendix is not engaged. This happens over time and is caused by normal wear. A click or clicking noise would point to the starter solenoid. Don't wait until you hear a grinding noise to replace it, thats hard on the ring gear and flywheel. A NEW starter is recommended if you plan on keeping the car. If not, you can go with a rebuilt starter for around 65 dollars. Of course make sure the battery terminals are clean and secure as well as the solenoid terminals.
Good luck...i hope this helps and will fixya up.

SOURCE: left turn signal beeps very fast and signal light not working, now is working fine and so is signal light

When your turn signal goes out it tends to blink VERY rapidly before burning out, It's a nice way to let you know before hand that you need to replace the bulb soon.

1998 subaru forester overheating heater blows cold air


Any chance of a head gasket leak? Is the coolant level still full? These were known for head gasket issues. Coolant is a closed system and level will not drop unless there is a leak. Make sure there is no air in the system. Replace the radiator cap to make sure that it is operating properly.

Put fuel fiter on it start but will not start a gain


Cycle the key and see if you can hear the fuel pump come on. You can try spraying Gumout or starting fluid into the throttle body, to see if it wants to start up.

Will not start. engine turns over very fast but


Hi does it sound like it is turning over much easier than normal? much faster as you say.

If so, it sounds like the timing chain/belt has broken
or the starter motor celinoid or the starter not catching.

Does the engine sound exactly the same tone wise or is it much higher pitch when trying to start?

I have a 2005 chevy malibu, and one morning it just wouldn't start, the car never showed signs of anything wrong, and when I turn the key it just make a beeping noise.


I have a Chev 2004 Malibu and so does my cousin.. This is a problem that A LOT of these cars have, but Chevy does not see this as a SAFTY issue... so they will not fix it. This problem will continue to happen to you.. there is NO way to fix it or by pass it. Basically your ingition is not recognizing your key, and this is Chevy's crappy way of keeping your car from being stolen. You will notice when your car doesn't start, your THEFT SYSTEM light is BLINKING... What you need to do is, when this happens to you, leave your key in the ignition, and turn it to ACC. Leave it there for approximately 10 minutes, until the THEFT SYSTEM light is SOLID, not BLINKING anymore. Turn your car off, and then turn it back on. Your car should start right up. I had this happen to me EVERY SINGLE TIME I got in my car for 2 weeks! Then it stopped and I thought it wouldn't do it anymore. But just as you need to be somewhere and you are running late.. THE CAR KNOWS!!! And it will do it to you again! Good luck!
