The chirping is not present when the car is not moving. Ruled out any belts or pulleys in the engine compartment, as the noise is not present when the car is not moving and the engine is reved.

2001 Suzuki XL7 - engine has loud screaching noise when I start the engine, then it subsides after a minute or two. If I turn OFF the a/c before starting the engine, it doesn't make the noise.
