This fan noise may be the coolant fan doing the job of cooling the radiator when there is no air flow through the radiator as in standing in a line or at lights. IN a drive through line you would have the window down and so the noise came to your attention when the fan cut in. However have it checked out by an accredited repair shop to put your mind at rest.

SOURCE: '96 Toyota 4-Runner makes a loud squealing noise and brake light

Sounds like one of the auxillary belts slipping it may just need tightening up. I think the 4-Runner has two belts one large and one for the steering pump

SOURCE: 1991 toyota camry front drivers side makes noise while driving

It's the left front wheel bearing. Take it to your favorite mechanic if you have one, any good tech can do it, but he/she could run into complications with a car of that age. (The hip bone's connected to the thigh bone, the thigh bone's connected to the knee bone, etc, and there's probably a good share of corrosion down there).

Toyota Highlander Hybrid 2006


The hybrid battery is charged by the motor generator that is attached to the engine, and also charges during braking. Very sophistocated in how the hybrid battery gets charged.

That being said, you do NOT want to pull the battery out & attempt to charge it. There is no charger available anywhere to charge a hybrid battery. Toyota does not offer one, either. Hooking up a standard battery charger could cause disasterous results (it could explode). And, the possibility of getting shocked with over 300 volts DC is very good. When we have to handle hybrid batteries, we have to wear big, heavy rubber gloves so we do not get injured from the many contact points under the battery shell. This is not something you really want to fool with. The stakes are just too high. Sorry I was not giving you the info you are wanting, but, be safe & leave the battery alone.
