I can't find anyone else talking about this so don't know if its just normal. But when I wake up in the morning and switch my car climate control on to get it nice and toasty, I walk out the front door to be greeted by this.
Is it normal? It seems very loud to me?
Yeah to be honest its louder than the video makes it sound. Luckily I never need to warm it up at night, but I wouldn't really want to right now.Blimey. My neighbours wouldn’t be happy if my car did that in the morning. I hope the heat pump ones are not all like that :-(
Have you a small person trapped in your boot doing the hoovering?
(On my ‘69 LR/AWD I always think the stator noise comes predominantly from the front rather than rear - not as loud/buzzy as that IIRC though. Is it an SR?).
I have a model 3 with no heat pump. Ive heard that noise a couple of times. If I unplug the charging cable and plug it back in the noise stops.I think much of the noise is the heat pump and ventilation, the noise varies depending where it's directing the heat from and too, depending how the octovalve is set.
Also the motors are used to help generate extra heat while preheating, you can hear them too.
I've noticed the noise in my car has got a bit quieter over the weeks, I guess everything needs to bed in.
I did see the battery preheat icon on my SR+ before, but dont remember the noise.I preheat every morning. No pump 3 here. Never heard anything like this. Also the noise comes only from the front.
