The beep only last a second or two then stops. The battery light on the dash flashes very quickly at the same time, then it all stops. I have replaced the battery but it is still happening.

So the battery cables were clean and tight where they go on the battery?Your going to have to check all the connections at the alternator the battery cables from the battery to the end where they connect. Also while its running have someone watch for the battery light coming on while moving wires around. Also have you checked for codes in the computer yet?

With a obd2 code reader take it to a auto parts store and have them scan it for codes. Post the exact code numbers if there are any not the code descriptions.

What iam talking about is I want you to post the exact code numbers. Which if you have any would be a letter followed by a four digit number. Not the code description like egr excessive flow which is listed after the actual code number on the scan tool.
