Interior buzz or noise or something

OK so I've had my Jeep for just over 24 hrs now and on our way to the movies a few hours ago, I noticed this whine sound. I thought it was some kind of feedback coming from the radio but it was still there even after I turned off the radio. It definitely sounds like it's coming from the speakers but I just can't pinpoint it. Anyone heard of this before?

I've got a 2012 "base" Overland 4x4.

Re: Interior buzz or noise or something

I hear the same thing immediately after I kill power to the jeep. Sounds like the hard drive just winding down. I wouldn't worry about it.

Re: Interior buzz or noise or something

This buzzing sound is on while I'm driving and noticeable at slows speeds like driving through the parking lot. Of course, it gets drowned out when I crank up the volume or I go fast enough. It's still there and it annoys the heck out of me. What makes you think it's the hard drive? And do you hear the spindles or some kind of feedback to the speakers?

sounds like we're talking about different things. Mine makes this noise immediately after engine shutdown and you can tell its coming from the head unit itself. Its an electronic sound which sounds like a computer turning off (fan, power supply, etc).

Re: Interior buzz or noise or something

Ohhh..gotcha. Yeah probably so. I thought maybe I would hear the spindle wind down after shutting off but it does not sound mechanical at all. I'll give it a few more days to see if it eventually settles down.
