Soft bell ringing sound

(2001 Honda Odyssey)
in Omaha, NE on September 20, 2010
I have a 2001 odysee. The van makes a soft ringing beel sound when driving. Or you could call it a sound like clicking a finger nail on any piece of crystal ping sound. It makes that sound at anytime while driving. I'm not doing anything in particular=the sound just started happening a month ago and continues to make that pinging sound and it seems to be coming from the front of the van. I took it to Amco transmission where thay changed the transmission last year and they put it on that diagnostic machine and checked the belts they said and they cant find anything wrong. The engine light is NOT on. I have changed my timing belt 2 years ago and a few other belts. It is a new noise and one would think its a warning for something--please anyone-- what could it be? UI dont want to end up stalled on a highway

I have the same sound on an 02 Ody that I just bought and I can't figure it out either. It seems randomly intermittent and happens in any gear. I'm going to take it back to the dealer and have it checked out. They changed the timing belt and drive belts before I bought it. Please let me know if you find the cause and I will do the same. :)

I have a 2000 Odyssey and have exactly the same sound coming from the front end of my van. Mileage is about 106000 and makes this noise over any bump. Have taken to 2 different mechanics, including Honda, and noone can figure this out. Very strange and hoping someone has found the source of this noise..It's driving me and my wife nuts....
