View Full Version : Is my heater hungry?

I've noticed on a couple of occasions a strange noise eminating from my car after it's shut down.
It seems to be coming from the vents, and only when i've had the heater running at a moderate temp. In each case it was after i'd been driving for about 20 minutes.
I can only describe the sound as a stomach grumbling... goes for about 15 seconds and stops... only noticable once the car is shut down as it's not really that loud...

I believe that afte the car is shut down, the electronics check to be sure that all the vent dampers can be moved fully in all ways. That's probably the noise you hear.

Come to think of it, I think that info is in the owner's manual.
