    I have recently started noticing this noise from the car when it is parked. This is the exact scenario: I come back from work, having driven some 20 miles, drive into my garage, go into park mode, open the door, and I can hear the noise from something running. There is no noise inside, but it is loud enough outside, and I can hear it as soon as I open my door. I get out, the noise is still there. But then, as soon as I close the door, it stops. It is not super loud, but almost as loud as the noise a quiet ice car makes when it is standing still. I am not sure if the noise would be audible were the car out in the open, but it is certainly loud and clear in my quiet garage. Does anyone else have this noise? Is this a normal expected known noise?

    [My car is about 800 miles / one month old.]

    It's the air conditioning compressor.
