I've noticed this several times while sitting in the car (2010 R/T) after it was shut off.

So here's what happens . . . about 5 minutes after shutting it off, what sounds like a small motor in the dash runs for about 5 seconds. Following a short pause the same sound repeats itself 2 times. After each whirring sound ends, there is a another sound like a vent door closing or something like that. This is all pretty quiet so it probably would not be heard over a radio or a conversation.

(In addition, it has also occurred when getting into the car, closing he door and sitting for a few minutes without starting it up.)

Thanks in advance for any assistance/ideas . . .

Nothing to worry about I have it too. Sometimes I wait to hear it. It's like a signal concluding a fine day of driving, a sign of a job well done.

Someone has to ask....What in the crap are you doing sitting in your car for 5 mins after you turn it off?

Seriously though i've heard it to and assumed it was normal lol.

I think part of it is something that keeps the hard drive in the stereo from getting too cold. It seems like it happens more when the temp is cold out than it does when it's warmer.

Its just the A/C (HVAC) calibrating the blend door. All the LX/LC cars do it. Mine will actually do it once when I hit the unlock button after an all night sit too. Which is wierd because my other LX/LC cars never did that. I hit the unlock button in the morning and hear a CLUNK from my A/C housing. Doenst seem to be hurting anything so whatever. LOL. Anyway its normal for the door to cycle after five minutes. Nothing to worry about.

It doesn't seem normal and never did that before I think it is a bad relay
How long have you had your car? It's normal if you have been running the air conditioning. If I'm inside my car for more than a few minutes after shutting it off, it sounds like it's haunted. :D

Just a heads-up...avoid responding to very old posts and as for relays...they are in the fuse boxes (there is one under the hood and one in the trunk)....not under the dash.
