I my understanding it is a charging coil noise when you turn on ignotion. But after noise every thing is fine no need to worry. I have a similar problem in Toyota sienna 2001. You can't remove the noise unless cahange all electrical system (Wirring) with new one. However it is expensive.

Thanks, take care.

2001 windstar annoying problems with auto locks

Does this happen all the time or only if weather is hot or damp? You need to open your sliding doors, disconnect your negative battery terminal, there will be 5 prongs on your sliding doors and 5 contacts on your door jamb. They are made of copper and you need to sand them down little with fine grit sandpaper possible 120 grit. Close the doors connect your battery terminal back on and make sure it is corrosion free. Check the operation after and see if the problem is solved?

My front passenger side door lock make a buzzing noise everytime I lock it. All the doors lock but it makes that buzzing sound as it locks. What is the problem?

It's called a door lock actuator, and ours was on the driver side, buzzing each time the doors locked. Very annoying. We ordered it online, it was part #4717961AB from a Mopar company. Wasn't very easy to replace ourselves, but do-able if you have at least an hour and two people working on it. Cost us $60 plus shipping._418.jpg

96 4runner charcoal canister buzzing when parked.

Hi my name is Mike ! that buzzing is the purging vapors from your fuel tank ,most of the toyota's doit in certain year ranges ,its perfectly safe just annoying ,Toyota came up for a fix for it they have a kit you can purchase from the dealer ,it gives you a new hose and a small chamber to install to stop the noise but really it is not a problem other than the buzzing ,I think it sounds almost like a frog under the hood when it does that ,sounds funny huh !

2003 Dodge Durango makes a funny noise when the ignition is turned both off and on. Sounds kind of like an annoying hum. Stops after a couple of seconds.

Usually the humming or buzzing noise you hear at start and turning off is the fuel pump being activated or shut down.
