    My car was turned off when I took the video above. I had just arrived home. I have been hearing a similar sound when I am driving 50mph+ with the window down. I thought it may be a wheel bearing but after arriving home today and hearing this, i think it may be something else. Anyone familiar with this? Sorry if I'm not providing enough info. I sadly know close to nothing about cars. Thanks in advance.

    That humming sound actually sounds like the car is still in READY mode. The other noises, ET is trying to phone home.

    You're right. I still had the car on in this video, oops. But it kept going after i turned it off. Lol. So I'm basically an alien and I'm being communicated to. Cool!
