    I went out to my garage at 11:30pm last night to find my car making a weird vibrating noise and a lot of heat coming off of the front end. I looked inside the car and it was all dark.

    I went and got my keys and got in the car and it was very cold and the AC was running. When I turned the AC off the noise went away - so I suspect that was what was causing the noise.

    Why would the car that was idle for 3 hours in the garage mysteriously start running the AC? Has anybody else ever noticed this?

    Thanks,

    I vaguely remember something similar happening. In my case, I hadn't shut the driver's door all the way, so the car was still "on".
