High pitch

Post by zippy » Thu Dec 05, 2019 1:30 pm

Is it normal to hear a high pitch noise coming from the bonnet after turning off engine?
I am thinking its a fan?

Goes off after a short while. Can someone just confirm?

Take a look. Sounds a reasonable assumption....

Yes, I've noticed this if for some reason I stay in the car after turning the engine off. It's a quiet, as you say high-pitched whine - definitely not the main cooling fan. It seems to go on for about a minute or so. I've assumed it might be something in thwe aircon system 'winding down', bu that's just a wild guess.
