I would check your power steering fuild.
I would say probably not, the reason your battery is weak is I reckon due to a fault with your alternator. It is obviously not producing sufficient power (electricity ) to keep the battery charged. The whining noise is probably caused by worn-out bearings. A replacement or re-conditioned alternator should cure the problem .
Whining noises often come from the alternator or the steering pump. Check the power steering fluid in the pump (there is a dipstick on the pump), and have an AVR test done on the alternator. If the alternator is faulty, you are probably having battery problems as well. If the steering pump is low on fluid or is faulty, you probably are experiencing jerky steering from time to time.
What could be making a 1999 Honda Passport make a constant whining noise while the engine is running?
One source of whining could be many things but the first that comes to my mind is the Alternator.

When the vehicle is making the sound, put a screw driver against your alternator and put your ear against the other side of the screw driver. If you hear the whining noice clearly through the screw driver, it's probly the alternator. Move the screw driver around the area and see if…
The cause of the whining noise in the front end of your 2004 supercharged Monte Carlo especially during cold weather?
the whining comes from the gears in the transfercase. The gears are larger and smaller dependin on what range your in and the noise is typical notice the rpm to whine ratio, however if the noise is extremely noticeable you may want to check the gear oil in the tcase it may be low.

This vehicle is notorious for a "whining" noise. The slower you drive, the louder it is. At first I thought our power-steering pump was going, or the transmission was whining. Two mechanics told me it's normal. Just a quirk with Dodge/Chrysler products. I had that whining noise and it was the alternator making the noise through the radio. even when the radio is off. Just a thought.
If it makes a loud whining, screaming, or grinding noise, it needs to be replaced. Before you do, verify that it is indeed your alternator and not a pulley or other engine component If you suspect low output is why it's bad, the only way to verify that your alternator is bad is to attach a diagnostics tool, or remove it and take it to a local automotive parts store.
