Re: buzzing noise from hood when car is off

the only thing on your hood would be the wiper sprayers...so check those....

if that doesnt work you may have a dying bug in the hood....idk....

Re: buzzing noise from hood when car is off

It is coming from the fuse box area? Do you have an aftermarket alarm fitted to the car?

my car does the same thing every few mins there is a buzz/humming noise coming from under the hood. i have never been able to figure out what it is either. I do have an aftermarket alarm though.

Re: buzzing noise from hood when car is off

i get more of a humming noise.. but i guess i could see it being kinda of buzzy. its not every 2-5 minutes though. there have been times i've worked on my car for a good hour or 2 and NOTHING happens. but there was a few times i'd work on my car for like 20-30 minutes and it would happen like 4 times with in that span of time. and i also have an aftermarket alarm installed. never really bothered to figure out what it is. the car is off, its not draining the battery so why worry..

Re: buzzing noise from hood when car is off

I know this is a old thread but does anyone know what this buzzing is? I have the same thing on my 98 sh and figure it must be a draw on the battery even if its just a little. anyone have ideas on what this is?

Sounds like the evap purge. I had the same noise on my 01 SH and finally found out what it was.

Re: buzzing noise from hood when car is off

I would suspect the buzzing you hear is the SRS system energizing and then de-energizing when starting and shutting off. Although some of the anti-lock brake componentry I've heard buzzes once in a while...

There is no solution. It's part of the system.
