Humming/Whine from underbonnet

Scenic11 Expression 1.6 2003

I have done a search for my problem but cant find anything related to it.

So I will start from when my problem began, are you sitting comfortably.

My battery gave up the ghost after nearly 6 years service on fitting the battery I had all kinds of problems with warning lights, auto hand brake not working eventually got round these took it out on the road ran about 5 miles the car totally cut out, opened my door power returned and was able to start, this has now happened twice and have now got to where it is nearly ok apart from my engine idle which cuts out now and again but even this seems to be getting better, I have put most of these problems down to the change of battery and the electronics on a re-learning process, I hope!!.

Now the thing that is bugging me is when the the car is is locked I can hear a very faint constant humming/whine from under the bonnet and appears to come from round about the alternator but cant be sure of this, so can anyone check their Scenic for this obscure sound.

I hope some can put my mind to rest
