Wink Megane Scenic Electric Sound When Starting

Hi all, apologies if this problem had been posted before but as far as I look, nothing similar has been posted.

Car: Renault Magane Scenic I (1998) 1.6 manual.

Problem: Sound when trying to start the car - sounds like an an electrical aerial coming out - not beeping. Will continue to sound when engine is on. When off, the sound goes off as well. Have tried to find the source but can definately be sure it is not from the engine. Got the car up on the ramp and is 80% sure it is coming from under the car, between the driver and back passenger. There seems to be a tank there? If not on the ramp, sound can be heard most clearly at o/s back panel, near rear tyre.

Would appreciate any help anyone has. Many thanks in advance and regards.

Hi not that sure but my guess is the pump for the fuel ie priming the car before startup???? and its not going off maybe a relay problem or even the central locking pump???as i said just a guess i hope it helps Donald
