The lock actuator motor for that door most likely needs to be replaced.

I have a 06 Freestar that makes a whistling noise. Very annoying and random. I can't associate it with anything. Sometimes it doesn't do it at all but mostly it does. Never when stopped or going below...

LOL , We had this issue arise before and it turned out to be that when the audio guys at American TV installed the car stereo speakers in our door , they tore the plastic sealing membrane on the inside of the door under the door panel.
To locate the leak you will need a passenger with good hearing .
drive into the wind until the noise starts and have the passenger guess which door the whistling is coming from... remove the door trim panel and be sure the membrane is intact and sealed... pay close attention to the mirror area... as they are prone to leak and cause a whistle...

Hope this helped!

Driver door power lock doesn't work with keyless remote or power lock/unlock button

It looks to me like your power door lock solenoid/actuator is either disconnected, or internally failed. DOes it make any noise when you operate the switches? If so, the link to the rod may be broken. If it makes no noises at all, you will probably need to replace the lock solenoid.

High pitch noise from engine compartment in 2003 Subaru Fores

There is a little beeper that sits just behind the front grill close to the Subaru emblem. It makes the sound you hear when you press the remote to lock or unlock the doors. It sometimes whines for a while but eventually stops. I have had this for a couple of years and it does not appear to have caused any problems.
