Alternator noise. Use all shielded audio cables. You can also add 'ferrite rings' to the audio calbe and to the power connecotr cable

no this is not the transmission, based on my experience it is most likely the power steering pump, if is the single most common source of this type of noise in any Ford

A high pitched whining noise in the engine.


This Noise Description sounds Indicative of the Sounds that come from the Serpentine Belt Or Related parts such as Belt Idler Pulley or Belt Tentioner witch also has a Pulley, but if Tensioner itself is Literally BROKE I've replaced a number like this it will cause a Whining noise . Best case scenario its just the Belt, and if any of the other Problems turn out to be the Culprit the Belt MUST be Replaced Anyhow as Damage is Being caused By the Very Whining you hear.
PLEASE Spend the Extras $ for the BEST BELT as this Drives your Water pump, Alternator, A/C Compressor, Power Steering Pump All Crucial to Control of, easy Steering ,All Electrical-Power Distribution, The COOLING of Engine << VERY CRITICAL Component
The Pulleys usually have a more Hum type Whining. So I would say at Best The BELT , And WORST Belt Tentioner is Broke

Strange noise


Some vehicles increase sound while you accelerate. There should be an option in your head units settings (not your sirius unit) to turn it off. It may be causing the whine.

High Pitched whine when using line out with car power adapter


I was ready to mention the car's alternator but you say the noise is there if the ignition is on or off. What type voltage adapter are you using? It sounds as if it's the culprit. If it's an inverter I could understand the noise being generated. Have you tried earthing ALL the components involved? Earthing problems can cause some mighty weird things to happen.\ Are you sure nothing else in the car is switched on? eg. another radio or something with an inbuilt oscillator. Try running the power for the adapter straight from the battery and put a noise filter in line. Are you turning the engine off but leaving the ignition switched on? Doing this can cause a noise from the fuel pump. Oh and make sure the antenna is correctly earthed. Apart from that, I'm stumped BMW
