Firstly G'Day from down under - Australia.

My car is a 1.4l turbo Cruze (2011)
Of late sometimes there have been strange whirring noises regardless of whether the engine is running or not.
The noise is not continuous but more of a rhythm. It is louder in the cabin but hardly audible under the hood.

Please check out this video for a recording of the sound - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H1fg...ature=youtu.be

Any idea what could be the cause?

Cheers

Ahh! I see! I'll take a look at it when I have a second where there is no noise. Too loud at the moment.

I tried, but everything is at least a year old. I can only guess that Google thinks I'm more interested in older stuff than something from down under.

Hi ChevyGuy,
I'll have a look over the weekend.
This noise is there for a few minutes even after the car is turned off and locked. The issue is very random. It came up only twice over the last fortnight.
With regards to the fan there is another "chirping" sound that starts everytime after the car has been running for sometime and goes away as soon as the fan is switched off.

Hi Guys, Sorry for the delay in updating. Checked out the cabin air filter ... found nothing but the sound hasn't come back as well.

Any ideas about the other "chirping sound" which happens only when the fan is on. This sound appear everytime after the car is driven for more than 10 kms and goes away as soon as the fan is turned off.

Thank you.

I'd guess there was something sitting on the filter that was fluttering.

Where is the chirp coming from? The engine or is it inside? There's a number of threads about engine chirp. And turning the AC on can trigger it.
