sounded like a bcm fault. did you happen to still have the headlights and other accessories on? because once my ef fairmont made a terrible noise under the dash when i had the headlights still on and the stereo, i had to disconnect the battery, it was fine after that

You took off the lead? - where the battery leads on nice and tight - that also causes that symptom
