    I can hear a very faint beep that sounds periodically at ~ 15 second interval in my car. Seems to have something to do with the Heat - A/C unit. I don't hear it if I switch off the Heat - A/C unit.

    Even if I have music on very low, it is very difficult to hear it. Anybody else experiencing this?

    Thanks,

    JT

    Did you ever figure this out? I'm having the same problem.

    I have it also... it's quite annoying when you're just sitting still. It's one of those noises that when you hear you can't stop hearing because your brain locks onto it.

    Same here, especially when sitting on the passenger side this was driving me nuts. A faint beep every few seconds. Sounds like the beeps you hear when you’re calling someone on the phone and waiting for them to answer. Well, thanks to you all I think I finally found what is causing it. I think it’s the electronic heat pump and that the sound is just part of how it’s running. When I turned off the Auto/Fast Eco button the sound stopped. PS sorry for the unclear photo!
