Question about Chevrolet Uplander LS
Your fuel sending unit is on the fritz.
The noise you heard was the LOW FUEL indicator buzzer going throught the radio (it does not have a separate speaker in your vehicle - the chimes play through the radio). It could be anything from the sending unit itself - to a pinched/damaged wire or ground.
While it won't prevent you from making your trip - be aware that your fuel capacity will not report correctly - so keep good records, and fill up after 3/4 tank is gone.
The BCM (Body Control Module) is the common denominator here and controls the 2 items that are gifing you problems - so a problem in the sending unit could be what is making your radio act up - since it is getting the bad/partial signal (and maybe even a ground loop - or power to ground situation) from the sending unit to give an audible chime.
Have a good trip - and thanks for using FixYa!!
