Default High pitched siren sound when accelerating

I started my car and have a high pitched siren sound. It gets extremely high as I accelerate and almost goes away - but as a slow down it is loud again.

Any ideas?

Are you talking about a "swooshing" sound possibly coming from the heater core? If so do a search on this site there are other posts with good info for this problem.

Is the noise engine RPM dependant? or is it more speed dependant? If it's speed, you really need to check the brakes as Dory has suggested.

If it is more rpm dependant, I would start by checking your serpentine belt for cracks or other signs of wear. If you cannot ever remember changing the belt, now would be a good time. You don't want something like that to break. While you have the belt off, you could check the A/C compressor, compressor clutch, and pulley. The compressor should turn with a bit of resistance, but not much. If you can see rust on the clutch plates, that could also be your problem.

If it is neither rpm or speed dependant, it could be the hvac fan in the dash, but I do not think that a problem with a heater fan would be classified as a siren...
