Car's making noise while the car is off

I just noticed that every minute or so the car is making a buzzing noise for a total of about 4 seconds. It's coming from behind the intake manifold, possibly under the dash.

What could this be? Thanks

I've read it could be the evap purge. Not sure why it would be making noise while the car is off though

it could be that some exhaust gasses still floats there when you turn it off

EVAP can be in use for up to 30 minutes after the vehicle is shut off. It could very well be the EVAP purging.
