I have this same exact issue. There is a sound that comes from under the dash and under the hood as well. No dash lights and when I put on hazards the is a streaking sound from the dash, also when I apply the brakes. The load sound under the hood comes from the firewall area by the wiper motor.

Probable your fuse box buzzing any moister will do that try buying a can of compressed air but be careful the canned air will shot out water if not held at right angle or blow out your fuse box after removing fuses make sure they go back in the right place also disconnect battery so no frying of the fuse box will occur. If you have a air compressor that will work too. Then if the engine will not turn over it could be many things if it is not even trying to turn over try charging the battery if old buy new one. still wont start after that i would then try to replace the starter.. and see what happens. wish you best of luck and hope i was helpful...

2004 cavalier died going down the rd.when you try to start it it makes a lot of odd buzzig sounds in the dash and you cant hear the fuel pump kick on

If the buzzing sounds like chatter, its a fuel pump relay that is either not getting enough voltage, a loose
connection, or you may just need to replace the relay.sometimes these relays will be behind the dash,accessible, or within your fuse block area, on chevy trucks i have seen them behind the glove box.
good luck!

If sound comes from under the dash, it might be an hvac actuator that is having a problem? Sometimes you can put your hand on it and feel the vibration? Sometimes with a relay, you can do the same thing.

Horn does not sound, i need to know where the horn relay is and where the horn itself is located. The fuse is good and pressing the horn button you can hear the relay clicking, so I suspect the horn relay...

horn is under the hood. usually right against the grill or mounted on fender well. fuses for horn can be under the dash, or in fuse panel under the hood.

1997 cavalier turn signals

Your left turn signal relay might be out, if i remember correctly, it's located in the fuse box, and is as easy as changing a fuse. If it isnt in the fuse box under your dash then check under the hood, possibly near the battery.
