Side note, I'm uneducated in the mechanic world. My up-front apologies for sounding like an idiot :)
2012 F150 Platinum 3.5 Ecoboost. 176,000 miles. When we start the truck, there is an initial chirp. Almost like we keep the key turned over too long. So we have been diligent to release the key quickly and the chirp is still there. Just an initial chirp, one time. The chirp isn't continual. Once the truck is started, the chirp goes away. Doesn't hinder starting the truck. Truck doesn't rumble or idle differently. We have owned the truck two years. Put new 800 cranking amp battery in early October.
Anything to be concerned?
Thanks

Welcome. Noises are difficult to help with due to the variety of adjectives used to describe them. There are rattles, whooshes, clanks, clinks, clanks, etc. And now chirps.
Can you record the noise in a video and post to YouTube, then put a link to that here?
In meantime, others are certain to opine soon.
Get your thesaurus ready!
