Any idea what the high pitch whine is?

Tue Jun 19, 2018 4:04 pm

I'm not talking about VSP. I turned that off the first chance I had. What I'm talking about is the high pitch, single frequency noise you hear when you cruise at slowish speeds with the windows down. The frequency never changes, and it is always audible, whether braking, accelerating, or cruising. <10mph it seems to not be there. But 10mph - 30mph is the worst.

I didn't notice it at first, but now its all I hear when I drive. I don't even want to roll the windows down when I am driving slow. It's awful.

Honestly, if you don't know what I'm talking about, then don't try to listen for it. Once you hear it once, you cant escape the noise!

I noticed you're still working with polymers.

Pedestrian warning whine.... After 2012, you can no longer turn it off... I would play radio louder

Hi,
I am experiencing the same noise. It is non stop and only turns off if I disconnect the 12V battery.
Did you get it fixed? Any help is appreciated.

Interesting. Mine only does that if I leave the lights on or something when exiting the car after shutdown.
