I have a 05 Cadillac STS with a weird rattle (cicada) like and it sounds like its coming from the dash. Cannot isolate to front or top. I tried with a mechanic stethoscope but no luck. I recorded a video and placed it on youtube to see if anyone has an idea as to what it might be. It only does it in low acceleration in "Drive" but not in Neutral or Park. Link to vid below.....any help is greatly appreciated.

It doesn't happen when you rev it in park? You have to be moving? Just wondering if its a buzz from the center speaker related to the alternator.

No it doesnt do it in park just in drive when you rev. Im at my wits end with this issue.

When you rev in drive, but keep the brake on? So its not just a vibration sound from moving?

Yes i have read it and did what was explained but it didn't work for me. Guess i will have to keep looking and testing components out.
