Truck squeaks at startup

I have an 08 F-250, recently I noticed (not sure how long it's been happening) when I crank my truck up for the first time each day it makes a squeak from under the hood and after running for about 5-10 seconds it'll chirp once more then that's it. I only drive the truck a couple of times each week. It runs fine and once it's been driven a little it won't do it anymore when I crank it up. Problem is I can't duplicate it for the dealer because once I drive it there it won't do it when I crank it. Any ideas?

Mine would squeak when I shut it off and I replaced the belt and it went away ! After I changed the tensioner and idler pulley as I thought them to b the culprits! ! Get someone to just pour a tiny bit of water on belt while its running and squeaking and if it goes away its your belt ! I found its best to pour it on top of alternator !!

Belt slipping.

Probably nothing like mine, but could be early warning sign of something.

Once it's running it stops, it chirps once when I crank it and then a few seconds later it chirps and that's it. It's not continuous.
