    newbie here. When installing software updates, my car makes several popping sounds during the software update process. Some of the popping sounds are quite loud. Is this “normal”?

    It is entirely normal, and it really should be in the manual that there are a number of popping noises and clunks that occur during the updates.

    The first time I heard it, just about caused a second heart attack.

    Same here.

    but figured it’s some kind of test or re-calibrating
