    Hi:

    Does anybody know what this sound coming from the front of my MS is? (attached file)

    My MS has always made this sound on and off but I've never worried about it. However in the last couple days it seems to be making this sound all the time.

    Otherwise the car is running great.

    Any thoughts?

    I unzipped the file and I cannot hear anything. Not even static. It is as if the sound recorder was set to zero for sound level.

    I believe it makes that nosie when it's cooling the battery pack. We hear that noise from ours as well.

    Yes, the recording was not the best. I called the road side assistance number. They said it was the AC/heater keeping the battery at the right temp. They sent my car logs to my service center to have them call me Monday.

    It did eventually stop but ran for 12 hours, something it has never done even in extreme winter or summer weather.

    Yesterday in MD was very pleasant in the 50s.
