It sounds horrendous and was about to go to see about it untill I read that,its identical everytime so thats consistant with a self check routine.Anyway that might be what your hearing as well.
Thanks for the reply Spektrum2! I think this may be the issue because it is consistent everytime I start my car up and then the vibration sound goes away shortly after. I will keep you posted if I find anything out of the ordinary.
