I think you are hearing the electric fuel pump running, when they get old they can get fairly noisy and it is buzzing sound.

SOURCE: creaking noise in front end 1997 explorer

I had the same problem. It would squeak kinda bad when I pull in my driveway. My cv boots were good. I found the ball joints were getting wore out, as well as the shocks were over 10 yrs old. I replaced the ball joints and shocks. I know my squeaks stopped, I personally believe it was the shocks that fixed my squeaking.

Only thing that comes to mind with description is maybe heat shield on exhaust, getting loose. Wait until vehicle is cooled off and get under there & check any heat shields you see wrapped around or near exhaust, above it attached to floor of vehicle etc, and give them all a little shake or rap with rubber hammer or similar to see if any rattles are present.

Whining noise is probably in one of the pulleys or belts. Probably the power steering. And the popping is probably CV axles.

Sorry there is not a fuse for this, not even the noise maker. It is controlled by a computer.. There are fuses for them. most likely if you pull the fuse it will kill the engine.( No start).

You need to replace the transfer case, the transfer case is bad, replace it, a used transfer case goes for about $200, new one is around $900, takes about 4-5hours to do, and labor is about $80 an hour.

Look for a broken trailing arm, or loose bolts or degraded rubber grommets on it. This is a piece of the suspension that goes from the frame to the strut. It holds the strut in place vertically. When broken or loose this truck can bang around back and forth. It could also a a worn out universal joint which can be hard to detect because even the slightest amount of play can cause noises. Perhaps even a loose brake caliper. But the gears in the differential may be becoming worn and sloppy as well. You can check up a rear tire and try moving it back and forth to see how much played there is in the differential and universal joint.

Sounds like a motor, or a s stuck mechanism. Either way the door panel must come off and this is no easy task.
