This does sound like the starter motor grinding, are you sure the tach has been learned OR check your setting on the starter crank time.

switch that unit over to "smart start" and see if it still does it.  if it goes away its your starter grinding and you don't have a good tach.

if your fuel pump wasn't turning on the vehicle would not run.

i would still try it, you have yet to specify where the noise is originating from so its pretty hard to diagnose over a forum.

Easy way to find out, take 1 DMM, black probe to ground, red probe to starter output on R/S, set to 20vDC and use your remote, see for how long it gives a reading and if it concides with the noise!  Better still use a test light, it's easier to tell.
