haha yea, I had a minor issue before with the defroster/Heat/AC not working at first, so I assume its just electrical randomness every so often. I can't recall exactly, but I think its the same or a similar sound to when you leave your parking lights on or if the keys are out of the car but the engines on, etc. the "something is wrong" sound. like when i was playing with my headlights before, it would have that sound along with the bulb out error.

Thanks Meagan. I'll PM you if it happens again. Like I said, there doesn't seem to be anything wrong (i hope), and has only happened about 4-5? times in the last 6 months / 2300 mi. Sorry to hijack the thread with a different weird sound.

this is really strange,, my 14 makes the noise about 5min after you turn it off, i think its shutting everything down,, i did listed to the video;; just wondering if the tire pressure sensor inside the tire is making that noise, i cant think of anything in that area that would do that... unless you are being bugged by aliens'''''''''''''

Have you spoken to your dealer about this? Please let me know, along with your mileage.

Any news on this? I just bought a '14 SE manual and it makes this exact same noise with the car off, loud enough that I can hear it on my front porch when the car is parked on the street. I haven't had a chance to take mine to the dealer yet, though even if I do I doubt they'll be able to reproduce the noise. This makes me extremely nervous buying a '14 with 10k miles on it if it's already having electrical problems.

Welcome to the forum, CapeMK3!

I can check out some additional assistance. Once you have the appointment set up, please send me a private message with your VIN, updated mileage, best daytime phone number, full name, and dealer name/location.

My '12 SE does not do it.

I just went to the dealer today but of course it wasn't doing it then. I showed them a video of the noise on my phone and they said they had never encountered it before. The problem is it seems to be so sporadic that I have no idea how to replicate it.
