My Chevy van uplander starts fine, but often makes a loud horn like noise then stops. It drives completely fine and not check lights are on. Any ideas?

this is a strange on, don't know why it sounds like a horn noise at start up, but the only thing I could suggest is to check all of the pulleys associated with the serpentine belt, maybe a bad bearing in one of them.
