Beeping sound like the gong going off?
Use your scanner and check your WSS are giving the proper signal/speeds and check for codes.

the infamous trifecta strikes again...search as in?....a code should have been stored. as you probably know, on the 528 the non OBDII systems are read from the underhood 20 pin port. the trifecta is well covered on here, however dont hesitate to ask. dunno what the beeping sound youre getting is. (yellow triangle is the indicator for the ASC)
