    Default Strange Engine Noise

    i went outside to clean the inside of my glass around 20mins ago and started up the car to give it a run after, it started making this strange noise that to me just sounded like a squeaking sound more or less it was a really high pitch sound.

    after driving for about a mile the battery light came on so i decided to turn around and head back home just incase it stopped on me. The sound was still going all the time it was being driven.

    The cars a 2005 Signum 2.0DTI on around 75,000miles

    i think it could be the alternator after a quick search on here but would just like to know what others think.

    That's the alternator belt slipping hence the alternator is not turning enough to generate power to put the light out, New belt should sort it & cheap enough, for a guide there about £12 on ebay.
