Question about Cars & Trucks
You need to elaborate what "funny noise" your car is giving you. Does it try to tell you something ?
When does the "funny noise" appear? When you twist the starting key? If so, I guess it is the starter motor. The relay does not actuate and connect the gears on the starter motor to the gears on the flywheel.
If your battery is empty, you will hear just a short "knocking" from the relay on the starter motor.

SOURCE: Beeping noise - 2005 Mustang
I have a 2005 Mustang, and sometimes if you have something in the passenger seat (like a bag or purse) the car may think that it's someone sitting there without a seat belt. Other beeping sounds come from your blinker being on too long while driving, your trunk may not be closed all the way, or your door may not be closed all the way, or your over head lights may be on. It's so easy to rub up against the light when you get into the car, and in the daytime you won't know that it's on. Your dash will light up, but it's such a quick flash, you can't tell what it is.

I have a Chev 2004 Malibu and so does my cousin.. This is a problem that A LOT of these cars have, but Chevy does not see this as a SAFTY issue... so they will not fix it. This problem will continue to happen to you.. there is NO way to fix it or by pass it. Basically your ingition is not recognizing your key, and this is Chevy's crappy way of keeping your car from being stolen. You will notice when your car doesn't start, your THEFT SYSTEM light is BLINKING... What you need to do is, when this happens to you, leave your key in the ignition, and turn it to ACC. Leave it there for approximately 10 minutes, until the THEFT SYSTEM light is SOLID, not BLINKING anymore. Turn your car off, and then turn it back on. Your car should start right up. I had this happen to me EVERY SINGLE TIME I got in my car for 2 weeks! Then it stopped and I thought it wouldn't do it anymore. But just as you need to be somewhere and you are running late.. THE CAR KNOWS!!! And it will do it to you again! Good luck!

The clicking you are hearing, is the sound of a weak battery, Jump start the vehicle and take it to an AutoZone for a Charging System check.

With the igniition off, press and hold the odometer button, turn the key to the "on" position, but do not start the car. Keep the odometer button down until the oil light begins and ends flashing. Turn the key off, and then start car to see if it worked or not.
