Prolly a belt or your intake. Tighten the intake if you have one around the filter and the brackets near the intake manifold, or if it's a belt identify which one and replace it.

that sounds like an electronic problem...some cd's have wierd tones that are like that...like have you even thought your phone was ringing...so you hit pause and it stops? same with weird sounds....sometimes they will start, you hit pause...gone, it play, and there back again....also, your alternator wont cause problems with your buzzing speakers...some times your ECU will cause that problem in some speakers....also some times its your cell phone...

hopefully that helps.

if it stops when you shut off the radio, it's electrically related.

if you can open the hood with the car running and not hear it, it's electrically related

chances are its some sort of interference from something

ok i figured out more details..it only does it at night...when my lights are on along with my cd player and stuff...i tured off my lights at night and it stopped and then turned my lights on and the cd player off and it stipped also...so its the alternator...battery....?
