Buzzing sound on startup and while driving

Fri Sep 27, 2019 2:46 pm

I've got a 2016 Leaf SV, when I start it up and intermittently while driving, I'll hear a buzzing noise coming from the dashboard. There doesn't really seem to be a pattern, it'll happen when I'm driving, braking or stopped. It does seem like it happens very frequently when I first start it, but after that it's pretty random.

Here is a recording of what it sounds like: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1vY_Ho ... SCgHkT2eyo

Has anyone else experienced anything like this?

Thanks.

No, and it's definitely not normal. Are you sure it isn't coming from the front speakers?

PLEASE don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

That sounds like some electrical feedback from the radio?? Speakers.

Pretty sure it's not the speakers, it sounds like it's coming from just behind the dash, in the steering column or something. And it happens whether the radio is on or not. Thanks for the responses. I think I've got one week left on the bumper to bumper warranty, I'll get it into the shop.
