After a drive when i sit in the car with the engine off I am hearing snap and popping sounds coming near the front dashboard area. Is this normal and does anyone know what is causing this?

I thought I heard something too today when I was resting in the parking lot. I thought my mirror was adjusting itself, but it also could be just a bird making noise.

if i had to describe it sounds like hot plastic popping. Kinda like for old tube tvs when you turn off think the plastic snaps and pops. Definitely not birds and its easily reproduceable.

Mine does that for about a minute after it is shut off. It sounds like it is coming from the dash area where it meets the windshield. It's like a pop/tap sound. Don't know what it is.
