Weird wine?

Ok so when my car is off and I think only when it's unlocked? I might be wrong, just the only time I really spend time with the car when it's off is when I'm giving her a bath or working on her. But when it sitting I get this high pitch sound/whine from the engine bay. I've seen a post about this before but I have a video that you an here it.

Does it do it right after you turn the car off or all the time when the car is off?

Yes, does it numerous times after I had it running and the car is unlocked with the keys in it but ignition is off. I assume it is CPU "priming" the system possibly, in not really sure. Just hope it's not something bad

It's nothing bad. Mine makes that sound all the time for about a minute after i turn the car off and my sound is coming from the throttle body. I have had lots of my car buddy's look at it and it is nothing to worry about

Can't say I've ever heard my car make a sound like that while being off, or even on. Be interesting to find out what's making that sound.

That's bizarre. Never heard of that before.

Sounds like an old printer that used to use that paper that was connected end-to-end. What were those called?

Lots 'o s4!t on the car

me neither.

Sounds like it is communicating with the car.

Unless the door is open and you door chime buzzer is broken.

I've never heard my GT make that noise in the 6 years I've owned. Maybe it's specific to the V6s?

Mine does the same too. Although yours sounds much more metallic or like metal scraping. Mine is pretty faint sounding.

It always reminded me of an auto leveling system from the older buicks
