The whistling could have been the A/C compressor belt slipping due to high head pressures caused by the cooling fan not turning on when the A/C was command was on. Get the fans checked out, make sure they are turning on and off as they should.

I agree with tennisshoes when your A.C is off only one fan comes but when you turn on your A.C both fans come on so it sounds like the fan that comes on when the A.C is turned on may be going bad.
