    POLL: Does your Model Y make this humming sound?

    No really. I am still getting people reporting the issue, but nothing from Tesla since we sent our petition. The problem is clearly still going on, but Tesla doesn't seem to care about it.

    Model Y makes hum noise all the time

    That's great, please, keep us posted. In my case, they did a thermal test, and everything resulted in being normal. I had to insist a great deal to have those pumps replaced just for the noise. And the problem has been reduced, yet not completely.

    POLL: Does your Model Y make this humming sound?

    Yes, several people have the same problem in Europe. You can have an idea of the people having the problem by looking at the list at the bottom of my webpage (the petition "signers"): https://modelyissue.com/

    So sorry about that. So, they'll do nothing about it? If so, what do you plan to do now?

    Model Y makes hum noise all the time

    Oh wow, that's terribly bad! 24/7? That's crazy! Has he reported to the service?

    POLL: Does your Model Y make this humming sound?

    To clarify: if you leave the car alone, after 10-20 minutes, it shuts off completely and you don't hear anything. But as soon as you open a door, or open the Tesla app on your phone, the noise starts back on...

    POLL: Does your Model Y make this humming sound?

    Ok, I guess either your Model Y doesn't have this issue or you haven't had the chance to drive a completely quiet Tesla. All the Teslas I have owned, and driven (I have driven a lot of them, rented, loaned, etc), none of them had this issue. All of sudden, I got my Model Y last June and had this...

    POLL: Does your Model Y make this humming sound?

    Again, I am sorry, with all due respect, clearly, you don't know what we are talking about. We are talking about a continuous humming noise that NEVER stops while using the car (even if parked). Please, watch this video in particular, and you can't miss what we are all talking about: Not all...

    I am sorry, but you don't know what you are talking about. We are not lunatics. I have been a Tesla owner since 2016 and I know exactly how quiet Teslas can be. Please, learn more about this issue: https://modelyissue.com Thanks.

    Right! Good tip, mostly if you want to sleep or take a nap inside your car and want do it without the damn noise ;)

    Model Y makes hum noise all the time

    Thank you for the detailed instructions. You say, in the end, that the fans come one again when you wake up the car again. Were you referring to the damn humming noise? If so, does that mean that turning off the car and then back on, doesn't make any difference, right?

    Oh dear, I am so sorry about that. So unfortunate. Please, report to Tesla immediately!

    POLL: Does your Model Y make this humming sound?

    Just sit inside the car with all windows and doors closed, make sure the A/C is off, then focus on any possible humming noise coming from the front-right of the vehicle. The environment around you must be quiet enough to notice that though.

    Model Y makes hum noise all the time

    Are you talking about the "heat pump" or the "water pumps" that make circulate the cooling liquid (those are the two small rounded pumps shown in the video's diagram)? What makes the humming noise we are talking about are those water pumps, and they keep running and make always the same minimum...
  17. fablau

    POLL: Does your Model Y make this humming sound?

    Yes, you are right, all pumps make noise. Even my super-quiet 2019 Model 3 makes some noise when you open a door coming from similar cooling pumps, but from inside the cabin can not be heard. I remember having the same experience with my old 2016 Model S. But nowadays Tesla is randomly...

    strange noise when turning on climate control (Fan only without AC)

    From your recording, what's more concerning to me is the continuous humming noise running in the background all the time. Is that noise present even when the fan and the A/C are off? About the drum/chime sound you are saying, I think that may be normal. I have heard my Model Y doing that once...

    POLL: Does your Model Y make this humming sound?

    From his description appears to be a different issue. The issue we are discussing here is a humming noise that runs always, no matter if the fan or the A/C is on or off. He wrote: "it happens every several minutes." and from the recording, it is possible that that's normal. I have heard my Model...

    I agree with you both guys. Hard to understand. Fact is, if you ask Tesla's technicians, they have no clue!

    Model Y makes hum noise all the time

    I am sorry about that. It is possible that those cars also have installed the same defective and noisy water pumps. In my opinion, it is not a problem of "programming" or "being always on", it is just a matter of noise. As I wrote in a different posting, my 2019 Model 3 is quiet, but it also has...

    POLL: Does your Model Y make this humming sound?

    Ok, I can confirm that with Sentry mode on, the pumps keep running. And I think that's probably normal since it helps to keep the computer system cool as well. I have also tested the same with my quiet 2019 Model 3, and it makes a noise as well (much, much quieter though). What concerns me, as...

    POLL: Does your Model Y make this humming sound?

    Is it doing that even if the car is parked and left alone for more than 30 minutes? I mean, it is always doing that?

    Model Y makes hum noise all the time

    Thanks for the tip, but for this specific problem I am afraid the water pumps and the cooling system is responsible. The noise is clearly coming from there and not the headlights. Maybe that can help someone else!

    Model Y makes hum noise all the time

    I am sorry, but that doesn't work for me. The pumps eventually will stop after 15-20 minutes the car is parked and left alone, otherwise, they keep running, no matter sentry is on or off.

    Model Y makes hum noise all the time

    In my experience, the pump runs only when the car is in use (either driving or right after you have triggered something), and then it stops after 15-20 minutes if left alone parked. So, I don't think that could drain your battery if the car is left alone while parked.

    POLL: Does your Model Y make this humming sound?

    48 dB was loud pretty much like mine used to be before water pumps replacement. For me, the noise is still there, much reduced (28-30 dB) but still there. May I ask you what Tesla service took care of your car? In what city? The fact is, it looks to me that the problem is affecting water pumps...

    Model Y makes hum noise all the time

    That's great! Thank you for reporting. You have been lucky. I got my pumps replaced as well, but the noise didn't completely go away. The noise has been reduced, but not gone. I am glad that worked well for you!

    Yes, that guy had low coolant fluid in the coolant tank. Tesla service put it to the right level and the noise went away. Lucky guy!

    That's too bad. Do you plan to do anything about it with the Tesla service?

    Model Y makes hum noise all the time

    It's so sad how Tesla is "normalizing" the noise by saying so and dismissing it. Compare the new noisy cars with older ones, and you have no idea how quiet they are. Nothing, like if they were completely unplugged by the battery pack. When you charge it may make more noise, and that's, yes, normal.

    Model Y makes hum noise all the time

    Sorry for my late reply. My service center is the one in Lake Forest: https://www.tesla.com/findus/location/service/lakeforest And they didn't replace the heat pump, but the water pumps. Be careful, this issue has nothing to do with the heat pump.

    POLL: Does your Model Y make this humming sound?

    When I took delivery of my car back in June, I had a "touchless" delivery system. I went into a big parking building with hundreds of Model Ys parked and ready to be picked up. I had a parking space number to look for. Nobody was there. I entered the car and there were the keys on the seat and...

    Model Y makes hum noise all the time

    No, I don't think so. In my experience temperature is completely irrelevant for this noise to run. Just make sure the climate is off, and you'll be sure to isolate the problem.

    POLL: Does your Model Y make this humming sound?

    Answers to your questions: 1. Just go inside the car, make sure the A/C is off and the car is NOT plugged in charging. Then close the doors and windows, and check for any humming noises coming from the front-right of the dashboard. 2. No, the noise is always there. 3. Yes and no. If you are...

    Just go inside the car, close all doors and windows, make sure the A/C is off and check for a continuous humming sound coming from the front-right of the dashboard. Of course, you'll need to have enough quietness around you to hear it.

    Awesome News! I am so happy for you, that's great. You deserve a quiet Model Y, finally! Just one question: when you say "almost no noise" does it mean that there is still "some noise" compared to your other, really quiet Model Y?

    You are most welcome! And I perfectly understand our feeling, unfortunately, you could get one of these new "noisy" cars. Please, keep us posted about it ;) And Good Luck!!
