I have a loud, sometimes scary loud fluttering fan like noise happening behind the driver side, upper vent. Turned the heat off, went away, so obviously heating related.

Not seeing anything like this from searching.

Is my ST mad at me?

Any help would be cool, nice and appreciated!⛄

A video would help. Does the noise increase in frequency when you change the blower speed?

Mine started making a quiet noise with the car off. Also behind the upper driver vent area.
It has made the usual gage sweep clicking and HVAC door humming noises for awhile, but this is a new noise.
It's almost like some electronic static humming noise, but it's sounds like it's coming from inside the dash, rather than a radio speaker. It eventually stops and does it at least 5 min but not more then 15 min. ?!

At least everything seems to work and I don't sit in the car with everything off often to notice it. 😊😁

He's running a TB strut bar, so his fresh air intake is open, no longer protected by the lower wiper cowl.

So my money is on debris, or animals, lol

Not yet:cautious:

Why dont you listen to the radio?
To busy driving, its a habit from my motorcycle days. I listen to music at home in my garage, I listen to the engine when I drive. 😜
