The noise seem to come from the serpentine belt the sound is similar to that if you had a arching spark plug and when warming up it slighty faint away also my battery keep dying on me
Cadillac Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

If you remove the belt and run it for a few minutes dose the noise clear?
