You will need to determine what circuit the noise is coming from. Turn each switch on and off to see if something will affect the noise. Some relay may be malfunctioning. Like the horn relay, A/C Relay, Fuel Relay, Hazard light Flashers, or some heater control.

I'd check the mode door actuator. Take a look at this post to understand how blend and mode doors work.

I couldn't find anything related to the heat actuator replacement in the Equinox service manual but assuming you have bored out the hole by now to make it fit, I did find a calibration step that should be performed before touching anything in the heating, defrost and A/C section of air distribution. Here is a paste from the GM service manual;

Prior to or after any replacement of HVAC components including A/C compressor make sure to calibrate HVAC module using the following procedure.
1. - Calibrate the HVAC control by simultaneously depressing the A/C and re-circulation buttons three times in a period of less than two seconds, allow 15 seconds to complete calibration. Perform with ignition on.
2. - Verify A/C and re-circulation LEDs are flashing during calibration
3. - After calibration is complete, depress A/C or re-circulation button and make sure the LED state changes and all modes operate properly (if lit, LED will be off after button is cycled or vice-versa). If state does not change, follow published diagnosis.)

The fuel filter (1) is located in the primary fuel tank module. The paper filter element traps particles in the fuel that may damage the fuel injection system. The filter housing is made to withstand maximum fuel system pressure, exposure to fuel additives, and changes in temperature.
inside the gas tank .

Firing order is correct, (1, 3, 4, 2). Cylinders are numbered as 1, 2, 3, 4. Number One cylinder is nearest the belts and pulleys and number 4 is nearest the transmission/gearbox end. Stand in front of the car and face the rear of the vehicle. Cylinder 1 is to your left and Cylinder 4 is to your right.

It would probably take a competent mechanic an hour to change. I do not have my program in front of me that shows book time, but you have to remove the air filter housing and the front motor mount to get to the belt and tensioner.

You can see fuse, correct. With rear defogger turned on, use test light, see if any voltage at fuse or if fuse is blown? Also, check continuity on defogger grid, if no continuity, there is a break in the grid. If you can find the break, hopefully your local auto store has continuity paint that you can paint over the break to restore continuity.

If it's not unlocking, The only way o get it open is pop off the trim piece that goes around the window. On the bottom panel there might be two screws to remove on each side. If not then it will pop off to a point, because there are screws on the bottom you can't access. Pull it back and reach down and find the rods that go to the latch. usualy the one that is horizontal is the one that unlocks the hatch. move it left or right to unlock it, try the handle to see if it opens. If it doesn't reach again and open it from the other rod. Pull up on it. Good luck

Step 1: Look at your radio. Check and see if the code "RDS" is written on the face of the radio. If "RDS" is present, contact a GM dealership to have your radio unlocked by them.
Step 2: Check for the identification code. Press buttons 2 and 3 for 8-10 seconds. If a code does not appear on the display, you won't be able to unlock your radio in this manner.
[If that doesn't work vvv]
In order to obtain your radio unlock code, you need to find your radio's serial number. You can get the radio serial number directly from your radio.
Step 1: Turn on the ignition. Turn the key to "accessory" mode or "on" mode.
Step 2: Turn on the radio. Press the power button to turn on the radio.
If your radio displays any functions such as playing a CD, cassette, or a radio station, your radio is not locked. If no sound is heard, you may need to replace your radio unit.
If your radio is locked, "LOC" is displayed on the screen.
If "INOP" is displayed, keep your ignition on for 60 minutes with "INOP" on the display. After the hour is up, it should change to "LOC." After this you can proceed with the next step.
Step 3: Write down the code. Press buttons 2 and 3 at the same time and hold for 8-10 seconds. Write down the three-digit code that is displayed.
Step 4: Note down the code. Immediately press the AM/FM button. Another three-digit code is displayed. Write it down as well.
This is your six-digit radio serial number.

Now that you have your radio's serial number, you can obtain the radio unlock code from General Motors. Be ready with a pen and paper to write down your radio unlock code.
Step 1: Contact the GM radio hotline. From any landline or cell phone, call the toll-free GM Radio hotline at 1(800) 537-5140.
Step 2: Enter the code. When it requests a code, enter "106010" on the keypad, followed by the pound (#) sign.
Step 3: Enter the radio serial number. You will be prompted to enter the radio serial number you have just obtained.
At the prompt, enter the number followed by the pound sign.
Step 4: Write down the radio unlock code. The prompt will read out your four-digit radio unlock code. Write it down precisely.

Now that you've obtained your Chevrolet radio unlock code, you need to enter it into your radio.
Step 1: Switch on the radio. Turn your ignition on and press the radio power button. Your radio will display "LOC."
Step 2: Enter the first two digits of the radio unlock code. Press the hour button on the radio to enter the first two numbers of your radio unlock code.
Continue pressing the button repeatedly until the first two digits of the radio unlock code are displayed.
Step 3: Enter the last two digits of the unlock code. Press the minute button until the last two numbers of the radio unlock code are displayed.
Repeatedly press until they match the two digits you need.
Step 4: Confirm the code. When the code matches, press the AM/FM button. "SEC" will display on the radio, indicating a successful attempt to enter your radio code.
If you enter the code incorrectly eight times, the display will switch from "LOC" to "INOP." You'll need to leave the ignition on for an hour as described in Part 2 before you can retry.
Write the radio unlock code in a safe place such as in your owner's manual for future use.
Most car dealers will charge you a lot of money just to get the code for you. If you follow the right steps, you can get the code for free and be able to start listening to the radio again in just a few minutes!

More than likely the electric fan is running to cool the radiator. Please look around to confirm. Next time you hear it try opening the hood and listen. Is the sound coming from behind the front grill or do you here it from another area? If you do please write back with this unknown information. Good Luck.
