Stepping on a ducks ass

BTY, this is my first post in a couple of years. I used to have a 90 Loyale turbo sedan and also a lifted Brat w a 92 legacy 2.2 engine/trans.
Thanks you guys and hello again.

My old Loyale started doing this on really cold mornings... I attributed it to a old speedo cable that was seizing up.

I actually stepped on a ducks rump roast one time and that's what the sound was like. First I looked at the speedo and all was normal. No erratic movements, and then I thought about some sort of buzzer going berserk.
But I don't have any buzzers that I've heard, only chimes. It does get louder on acceleration and then all of a sudden just goes away.
15 degrees this morning and no squaking sounds.
Doesn't seem to effect performance.

I have had heater motors that made a terrible sound until they warmed up. They would suffer for years and finally die.
Thanks, it is similar to the sound of a blower motor going bad, but much louder and "shriller" and right in front of me behind the dash cluster. I'm not sure where the blower motor is on this car but will look for it and see if it's a possibility. I will also check the speedo cable and maybe lube it with graphite and see if it makes a difference.

The blower motor is located on the passenger side under the glove box. Could just hit off on the control panel for it so it's not turning at all to check it. Stumpy
Duh!....I'll try that little "off" button solution next time it does it. Didn't think of that when it 5 degrees outside, thanks.

It does have sort of an electronic sound, like maybe a relay gone berserk, but hopefully it's just the speedo cable.
I hope I can pull the cable from the transmission end, I don't really want to take the nice dash apart.
