Yes this should solve your problem. however this will void any warranty so if there is still warranty then send it off. otherwise replace it and the problem should be solved

Makes whining noise


This could be a stuck Bendix gear. The Bendix gear is the gear that engages with the flywheel on the engine when you start the car, and if it hasn't retracted it will whine.

Check with a local garage, but do so soon.

Avital whining noise from control module


I have installed countless avital systems and have NEVER heard of a whining noise coming from the module. Based on your other comments as well, I would HIGHLY recommend that you visit a qualified install shop to check your work before real damage is done.

2000 Estima, 6 cylinder, makes a short whining noise on start up, also when placed into gear both forward and reverse - mainly when cold - makes a slight knocking sound that fades when you pick up speed,...


The whining noise at start up is either the power steering pump (possibly low fluid, or faulty pump bearing), or possibly a belt on the engine. As for the knocking sound, that is hard to diagnose without actually hearing it, but based on the fact that you are hearing a whining sound at start up, which is indicative of a loose belt, I would start at the belt tensioner and make sure that it is applying the correct amount of pressure on the belts. If the belt tensioner is faulty, it can make a knocking sound. If that is not the issue, then it could simply be the lifters. With engine run time/miles on the engine, internal engine components, such as lifters, valves, bearings and any moving part, deteriorate from friction wear and heat.They have a tendency to make a knocking/rattling sound when they are building up pressure. When they build sufficient pressure, or the engine reaches operating temperature, this sound/noise will dissipate and become nonexistent. This can be remedied by changing the oil, and possibly the weight of the oil (5w30, 10w40, 20w50) depending on your driving habits , or conditions (Highway v/s City/Stop&Go, or short trips under 30 miles)

I hope that you have found this information to be useful, and if I can be of any further assistance, please let me know. Thank you for using fixya!

Iturn on it says cannot start the correct Hard disk was not found


Open up your ps3 on the right site with a small flat screw driver.
Turn out the blue screw with a small cross screw driver, slide the hard drive to the left and pull it to warts of you, note it is a 2'5 inch sata notebook harddrive.
Hook it up to a pc or mac to run a diagnostic check on it to see if it is crashed, by the way you're able to tell by the sound it makes if it crashed.

04 kia sedona makes whining noise maybe power steering pump?


Hard to say..I just recently replaced both tensioners on the timing belt. One was going out and there was a screaming/whining sound similar to a fan belt slipping. They run about $80 each and are a dealer only item. The info to do it yourself can be found online at
