Hi Pitch Whine from HVAC system

I have a high pitched whine coming from the HVAC system. When I'm in the driver's seat, it sounds like it's coming from the passenger dash area, but when I move to the passenger seat I can't tell exactly where it's originating.

Has anyone experienced this issue? I hate to have a dealer tech tear apart my whole dash to diagnose it, but if gets any worse its going to drive me nuts.

I'm no expert... But the HVAC components are behind your glove box so odds are that's where it's coming from. You can detach your glovebox and take a loom at everything yourself. The motor blower is right there and easily accessible. My guess would be that he has something to do with that.

But again, I'm not an expert and I don't have any experience with this specific problem.

I guess that's good news that the components/ blower motors are accessible and don't require the whole dash to be torn apart.

Re: Hi Pitch Whine from HVAC system

Our '11 had the same issue. It was a pretty quick fix at the dealer, and I want to say it was a known issue at the time, but unfortunately I can't remember exactly what the fix was.

Edit: This may have been it - TSB #24-007-11 - Whistle or Rattle Sound from Dash While HVAC is Operating in Panel Mode
