Chirping sound in a cold weather ?


Well, I'm wondering if anyone has the same problem that I'm having. It's hard to reproduce but in the cold weather (I'm talking in teens, or lower 20s) almost everytime I just start my car there is a chirping sound under the steering coloumn, close to the pedals.

I can't show it to the dealer because it only happens when I just started my car and about couple minutes, the chirping sound is gone. And to make matter worse, it's so erratic. Sometimes I didn't get the chirping to act up at all.

Well, thanks it advance, and hopefully someone can shed some light for me.
