2014 Intermittent Buzzing from Radio Area

Just picked up my new 2014 Overland today and it sure is a nice ride. I did notice something that I wanted to see if anyone can tell me what it is. I was sitting inside it, vehicle off, FOB away from the vehicle, and the lights had turned off after entering. While sitting there in the Jeep in the garage it was quiet and I hear this buzzing noise, almost like the sound you hear when you put a CD or DVD in a player and it spins. It was very intermittent, anywhere from 5-10 seconds, not loud, like the sound of a hard drive running. Yes, I know the vehicle has a hard drive. The noise continued the entire time I was inside sitting there before I jumped on here to ask. Any thoughts?!

My 14 Summit makes a similar sound inside and outside I hear some solenoid clicking under the hood every so often. Probably just the nature of the beast.

Thanks for the reply! I sat back in it again and this time brief noise after the door closed and interior light off and then silence, no where as long as the first time I was hearing it. I was fooling around wih all the gadgets, seats, etc the first time and I wonder if te hard drive was trying to absorb all the "what I was doing"! Can't wait to get to know my new Jeep better. I feel so technology illiterate!

I don't have a '14, but I'm fairly sure there isn't a hard drive in a 2014 GC. Hope that helps.

You can not store any music on the 8gb (RA3) or 16gb (RA4) radios. This is for updates, UConnect, and Navigation.
