Two issues! Warning beep and false start!

1998 540ia m62 157,756 miles.
First issue at different times after staring and driving, any where from one minute to fifth teen minutes it beeps a low tone beep(chime)three times! Any one familiar with this low tone three beep(chime) warning? It is intermittent!

Second issue, sometimes after a short five minute drive to the store and sitting for around one half hour or so, it cranks, almost starts, then dies, after several tries it turns over, then dies, still will not start!
If I rev the engine as it turns over and starts, then quickly put it into gear runs and then acts fine! This a very intermittent problem!

I recently replaced the battery also, the above were happening before the new battery was installed.
