Squealing coming from under the middle of the car after shutdown?

When I shut the car off and step outside, I hear a loud, sustained squeaking/squealing noise coming from the underside. It varies in volume a little and stops after a few seconds. I cannot tell exactly where it is coming from, but it sounds like it is directly underneath the passenger compartment.

I seem to think it has been doing this for a while but is getting louder. Any ideas?

there does seem to be a similar noise on startup but it just lasts a fraction of a second.

I have same issue, i believe it is the clutch fan.. it still spins somewhat after motor is shut down. But mine has not gotten louder, very mild.

Re: Squealing coming from under the middle of the car after shutdown?

The sound wouldn't be coming from the radio, right?

Some modules have cooling fans that continue to run after the vehicle is turned off. The radio usually is the most noticeable, and if the fan is noisy (defective) you will hear it.
