The whirtting sound is indicative of the starter bendix not engaging. You may need a new starter solenoide or possible a new starter.

My 2005 Buick Rendezvous Ultra is intermittently starting. I've replaced the fuel pump already. It cranks over but won't start. This is same thing before fuel pump was replaced. What else could it be?

Anti theft could be malfunctioning... listen for the clicking of the fuel injectors when you put the ignition into pre start position.. then look at the dash for anti thief not turning off... no ignition injector clicking or no fuel pump whirring could be a fuse in the dash or under the hood.
