Unusual noise in my 2014 focus

This just started a few days ago and is random when it happens. It's when the vehicle is off can do this a few hours after it's been off. I have a vid link posted as well. Opening the radiator cap, washer cap, brake cap, starting and stopping the engine again does not change the tempo or stop it at all. It just goes away on its own. Check the link and any thoughts? Kind of reminds me of a jaws theme on helium lol




The car has 4k miles on it and is an auto trans. I have done a few searches but nothing came up for me

To me it sounds like an electronic beep. Does it sound more electronic or like air leaking? Whatever it is is weird.

It seems like is coming from the passenger side front under the headlamp. Couldn't really see anything electronic in the area(besides washer pump and lamps), but it's a toss up, can't really decide if it's electronic sounding or air/vacuum leak.

it could be a dying alarm but it sounds the same right after the car is shut off and after a few hours, so no battery drain to account it to. And it doesn't do it every time.

My next step is to unplug the battery while it is acting up but didn't want to have to reset all my screens/preferences, so I figured I would ask here first. I will be emailing this vid to the dealer tomorrow to see if they want me to bring it in.

That is strange. Let me tell you a secret, go to the dealer directly.

That will most likely happen, the only problem is I live an hour away from the dealer and wanted to get some sort of idea of what it is before i take in. Hopefully they will let me drop it off and give me a loaner to get around with for a day.

thanks you the replies guys. I was just hoping someone had run into this issue before.

Mine was doing the same thing when I was washing it last week. I thought it was a tire at first, as I had driven through some debris the night before. Then the hissing turned to a shrieking sound, like a piezo buzzer. It stopped after a minute or so, and i haven't heard it since.

Now that i think about it, I did wash the car the same day this noise started. I'll have to see if that triggers it again, it hasn't whined at me today yet.

thanks

quick update, found both high and low note horns in that corner of the vehicle. that would explain the 2 sounds...but havent figured out why they would go off like that when wet?

tuxtanium, did you wash out the engine bay when you had this issue?

I did have the hose in the wheel well, but nothing under the hood that day. I know my horns still work.

I have the same going on and it has nothing to do with washing or rain. My noise seems to start twenty or thirty minutes after I park it and could last more then 10 minutes. It is coming from under the hood on the left-side and definitely an electronic beep. I noticed it about two months ago and now approaching the 12k miles expiration of the "everything warranty". Just don't have the time to take it in to the dealer and I was hoping to hear some follow-up on this before I have to. Thanks
