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.

With your Stratus idling, look under the hood. You should be able to find the source of the noise. It could be the belt or something driven by the belt

Could be tire noise, could be rear wheel bearing, differential (if rear wheel driven), or could be something associated with the brake.

Try swapping the tire with another tire. If the noise moves with the tire, it's the tire. If it stays, it's brakes (unlikely for the noise you mention), rear wheel bearing, or rear differential (lack of oil). Will probably need to have a mechanic to identify and repair.

HIGHPITCHED WHINING SOUND AND COLOR FADES IN AND OUT


Well in case you didn't get an answer somewhere else the part making the noise is called the color wheel and has a motor that spins it at a high rpm. When they go bad they squeal real loud. You're looking at maybe $300-400 to fix parts and labor.
