You're hearing whine from the alternator as it charges the battery. You could reduce it by turning the input level down on the amp, or by adjusting the filter on the high end. You can also buy a whine filter kit.

One last thing... you may have blown one of the diodes in the Alternator itself when you shorted the speaker wire. It would still work and charge the battery, but would not be able to filter the whine like it should.

Hope that helps...

There is a loud whining coming from the motor


Hi Tyler:
Try using a mechanics stethescope (or a dowel sound rod, thumb over end held against your ear) and with the engine running, touch various components. You will hear different sounds, and hopefully be able to isolate the whine.
CAUTION - Work Safe - moving bits can make the sound rod hurt you.
I'd be guessing at an alternator bearing as they whine worse than a puppy on the wrong side of a door.

I recently started to get really bad alternator whine noise from all my door speakers! it was working fine until i re-ran all the door speaker wires because my dumb cousin was using a very thin speak


hi, your problems could be many. this fault can be caused by a weak/old battery, poor quality/wrong gauge of battery B+ cable, very poor level of amp ground connection. this fault can be caused by a faulty rca output/preamp line out circuit from the head unit or crossover unit. this fault can also be caused by the antenna not being properly grounded to the vehicle chassis! best you check out you local installer if you battling with this fault.

I am running rca cables to my amplifier. The little black wires that are wound with the rca cables which have looped terminals, Are they supposed to be connected to a ground?


Yes you can connect these wires to ground
this is used to prevent "Ground Loops" (un-even ground points in the system)
un-even ground points cause engine whine noise in the system and by connecting the stereo and amplifier grounds together usually resolves this issue..
So just connect one end to the same ground as the stereo and the other end to the amplifier ground location..

Hope this info helps

Just replaced a dead battery with a brand new one. Tried starting it and it makes a high pitch whining sound and wont start. Any suggestions of what the problem is? Does it need to sit to charge the...


The basics, your battery is used to provide power to the starter. Once the engine is running the alternator then provides current to recharge the battery and run all of your electrical components. so I would suspect the starter is not working to start the engine.
