Exclamation ok guys and girls i desperatly need your help...please!!!

ok so im drivin my 93 tbird lx today with no problems...its a 3.8l btw. Im at my gf's house... i go to leave and open my door....the lights turn on then immediately turn off and i try to start the car and not a sound. so I find out that when my door is shut and i lift the handle...i hear a buzzin sound coming from the trunk...where the fuel shut off pump is on the left hand side...its coming from one of the electrical boxes in there,....as soon as i open the door all the way it stops...then turns on again when i shut the door. The car is completely dead yet it makes a buzzing sound. I managed to get it jump started but the whole time i was driving the voltage meter was jumping around and when i hit the brake or did anything...it jumped like crazy. I turned my high beams on and the car jolted and almost died. I got it home and as soon as i shut the car off...it died right away...lights and all.

If you guys need I can go take a picture of what box I think it is and post it....please help I need an idea for tomorrow...this is the only car I got and I have to drive to work and school. Thanks!

EDIT: It also makes a slight slight whining while driving home...a normal passenger woudlnt notice but i do since i know how the car sounds.

Sounds like the alternator went and killed the battery, or you just have a battery that crapped out. Take the battery to an auto store and have them test it and charge it (if looks okay). If it holds a charge after 2 hours, your altenator has gone to ****. The buzzing is a relay that when it dosn't get enough juice it will buzz.

Start with the battery and altenator first.

And yes, batteries will take a crap on you all of the sudden.

I could be wrong, but I think that is your fuel pressure cut off valve.

That shouldn't be buzzing!

Remote Keyless/Illuminated Entry System (http://www.fordvehicles.com/help/glossary/index.asp)

A feature allowing the owner access to the vehicle interior without using a conventional key by using either a push-button (keypad) panel or remote transmitter as described below:
Push-button Panel Entering a code into the driver’s door push-button panel automatically unlocks the door. The code sequence is programmed at the factory, and owners also can program their own sequence. This feature is available on certain Taurus, Crown Victoria, Explorer and Expedition models.
Remote Transmitter Certain vehicles use a remote transmitter in addition to, or in place of, the door-mounted keypad.
A remote, handheld transmitter is used to operate the vehicle’s electronic entry function:

The transmitter may be used in place of the door-mounted keypad to lock or unlock one or all doors, or open the decklid
On some models, a PANIC button, activated within 33 feet of the vehicle, flashes the lights and chirps the horn as a warning
See specific vehicle sections for application
A conventional key still may be used to unlock the doors whenever desired. See the vehicle sections for remote transmitter functions and availability. The Illuminated Entry System provides added convenience and security when entering the vehicle in darkness:

On some models, the system is turned on by lifting either front door handle
On some models, it generates a ring of light around each front door lock cylinder for easy key insertion
The system also activates all interior courtesy lights to allow a view of the interior before entering The lights stay on for approximately 20 seconds or until the ignition switch is turned on (time delay varies from model to model).
