So after my wife came home today my 6 year old son came into the house and and said papa there is a noise coming from the car. Needless to say I was very proud of him that he pays attention to that at 6 years old. At any rate there was a loud whine with the engine off and then the whine went away when the engine cooled down which to me means that the fan is not working or is frozen. I immediately called my local Chevy dealer to schedule an appointment they can fit me in next Tuesday at 11:30. Should I be concerned driving the car until then? I am thinking about going in on Saturday and asking for a loaner car this is a 2014 with 11,000 miles on it. the weather right now is very cool highs in the 40s 50s lows in the upper 30s low 40's.

The Cruze does whine some after the engine is turned off. Normally it's not very loud though.

Fan works fine.

This is the AC compressor making the noise - they all do it. Was probably running if defrost was turned on.

There's a TSB out for a software update to make them stop making the noise.

Ohhh ok thanks fellas I never noticed it before even in summer. Just always noticed the fan on for a bit after shut down. Thanks for the heads up. I'll still go in on Tuesday just to verify. Might as well I suppose. My marathon road trip balls out to okc is in a month so gotta make sure all is good.

I really like this forum a lot of knowledge in here and people are always fast to respond. I wish I can contribute more but not many people need help fixing an instrument landing system or a VOR. All I'm really good at is reading other people's thoughts in here and making smart a$$ comments when people talk about their DIC

NickD might need assistance with his ILS. :)
