Electrical - Whining Noise
A couple months ago I drained the battery listening to music while washing my car. Before the car died I heard a few clicking sounds and boom dead. I jumped the car and came back on but a weird whining sound was coming from the engine compartment. I let it be and the next day car started right up ran fine even went to Colorado on a trip from Idaho.

Well the noise came back and I let it be and on the second day I was driving to work and the dash lights went all crazy and the car died on me and this time I couldn't even jump it. The battery was toast, so I did some diagnosing and installed a new alternator, that maybe I shorted it out and the whining sound sounded like it was coming from alternator. However, the sounds is still there and it seems like the car wants to die after a few seconds of it being on.

Anyone know what it could be? 2008 XR AWD

What's battery voltage with engine off? If it's below 12 volts and original to the car, replace it. You may be hearing the alternator whine overload as its trying to recharge a dead battery.

Another way of putting it, when he killed the battery, he killed the battery.

If gonzalja gets a charger and uses it, it may come back.

,,,, somewhat, to handling a( almost) full load. But regular car batteries do not like to have done what we've all done at one point.
ANd alternators don't like to charge dead car batteries. It can kill them.

Make sure there's electrolyte covering the plates if you can access the cells.
