Thanks for following-up! :) Please let me know if you need me for anything.

Another small update, it was acting up again last night. I disconnected the battery and it kept on going with no change. I reconnected the battery after about 5 minutes.....

NOOO! Never disconnect the battery on a running engine. It will be a miracle if you haven't blown the alternator and some electrics

Just a guess here but I highly doubt he pulled the battery on a running motor.

Will you be heading in to your dealer to follow-up with them on this?

Its almost impossible to get the car to act up on cue....I'm hoping with all the other cars that are having this issue, someone is able to figure it out.

Question My car makes the same noise

I have been hearing the same noise from my car, for months. It is irregular; it doesn't happen every time. I've recorded it several times. This video was taken about an hour after shutting off the car: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nSljbiGF5ac
This video was taken about 2 hours after shutting off (longer periods of silence between each occurrence of noise): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fJLJvTR-8X8
My many videos have been shared with the dealer and the mechanics. My car has been back to the dealer repeatedly. They've had it for days at a time and the noise never happened. It is a mystery yet to be solved!

Here's a link to a "feature length film" of the noise! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dWv_LNtsfdQ

If you do circle back with your dealer, or if it becomes more consistent, please follow back up with me.

The detectives are on the case! Working with your dealer is a great first step. I can check out a few more options, please send me a private message with your VIN, mileage, best daytime phone number, full name, and dealer name/location.
