SOURCE: noise in car rear
The rear differential either needs versatrak fluid added or changed.
Located at the rear of the vehicle loosen the top hex bolt and stick your finger in if you don't feel any fluid add some. If you do feel fluid see what color it is. It should be clear if not then its time for change.
Versatrak fluid can be purchased at any GM dealer .You will need almost 4 bottles to do a full change.Once you have either added or changed the fluid do some circles around left and right and drive a few blocks then circle around again and your groaning noise should be gone!

SOURCE: Aztek won't start
You will not get far with this without doing some testing. Check battery for 12v (lights draw far less than starter...,what appears as OK often is not) if battery is low, charge and load test it. Once verified as good you need to check that starter is getting voltage when key is turned to start.Check battery connections at both ends of main wires for clean/secure connections. Beyond that there are code tests and individual component tests outlined in most inexpensive manuals you can do with any decent digital volt/ohmeter (computer scan tool needed for code testing) Once started, use volt meter to check charging system.
Even if I was standing right there, I'd need to do testing...stuff costs way too much to guess your way through it. Good luck and feel free to ask if you have any specific questions.

AWD disabled from a sensor unit in rear differential that senses high temp. This thing is over $300. Whine is from fluid. Need to change fluid. This versatrack fluid is about $40 per bottle and you need 3 bottles. Thumping noise is from loose rear knuckle bushings. These are part of the entire rear knuckle assy. and you must replace complete knuckle.

Inside the door is a pair of rods, connecting a wire in a figure 8 pattern. There are four tiny little plastic tabs that surprisingly, break off fairly easily. I had mine break off when A GPS suction cup prevented the window from going down in auto mode and the window dropped into the door. Without those four plastic tabs, there is no way to connect anything and you have to get an entire new assembly for your window. You might be able to fabricate yourself some new ones, but if you can do that, then you're not on this site to begin with. The dealership wants an arm and a leg, but the unit is fairly self explanatory as long as you're comfortable taking your door apart and working on it yourself.
