      My 99 Force makes this noise when regenerating in the first couple of
      miles after a full charge. My battery monitor shows that some
      batteries go way overvoltage during that screeching regen, so I think
      it's not a good thing. I turn off regen during the first two miles
      if I have a downhill stretch or must make a quick stop.
