Greetings from Colorado, my significant other just picked up an BB on Saturday. We weren’t planning on buying but just cruising thru the lot and she ended up taking it home🙄

Anyway, I notice this noise when the engine is off. Kinda sounds like a fan but it runs for quite awhile before it shuts off. What to ask if anyone knows what it is. TIA

I have the same noise (same color Big Bend too). It starts by just unlocking the door. There's a thread out here about noises. I think someone said it's a fan for the headlights, or the led heatsink fan??? It shuts off in about 10 minutes. Guess I'm not too concerned.

The transmission noises are what should concern us. I've been listening for them but nothing too alarming yet.

Yea huh, I listened to your sound again but louder. Seems louder than the light-fan. Hmmm, can't say I've heard that before.

Right after you turn off the engine?

No, comes on even if you just open the door. I just did it. I’m standing here now in front of it, no lights or anything on …..but whatever it is kicked in and is running. I’m gonna see how long it runs

It’s coming from the headlights, if I put my hand on them there’s a slight vibration…..must be the fans someone was taking about on that other thread….They are still on now

They just kicked off so it must be about a 10 minute cycle
