Are you sure it's not a humming noise from your throttle body? Pull your EFI relay to see if it stops, I wonder if that's keeping your ECU in the on state, killing your battery(if that's the problem). It will not crank over because obviously the battery is dead but it's surface charge is enough to sustain small loads like lighting and indicators.

EFI is by the battery junction box. I've never heard of a ringing noise after the car is turned off. You may want to post a video or sound clip to help figure it out.
