Electronic clicking after shutting off truck

Recommended Posts

I’m fairly certain it is supposed to do it, but in my 2019 Sierra when I shut off my truck and remain sitting in it for about 5 minutes or so I hear a bunch of electronic clicking and whirring coming from the dash, kind of underneath the steering column area. Just curious what it is making the noise or if anyone else has heard it and knows what it might be by chance.

I'm curious too. Sounds like an animal is in the dash.

If y’all gave the HUD, it’s retracting, or the electronic parking brake is setting, most likely.

Mine does it also, it is not the parking brake and I don't have HUD. Not sure what it is but I would say it is normal:)

It is the new electronic braking system doing a system check.  It does this after the truck has been shut off.  I worked on it while it was in development.

The brakes are fantastic on the truck so good job to you and your team.

What do you mean "HUD's retracting"? I've never heard about that!

Relay clicking noises mostly. Also, since the truck doesn't have a normal keyed-ignition, the government mandated column lock uses a solenoid that activates after the truck is in park and engine is shut off. That's pretty audible. Another noise is the solenoid that keeps the shifter in park until the brake pedal is pressed. Apparently GM wasn't willing to isolate the relays and solenoids with noise insulation, so they're all pretty audible when the stereo is turned down or off. Maybe someone will peak under the dash and figure out where they are. Or maybe a tech can give us a diagram of where they're located. A DIY sound deadening mod to make them less audible would be nice.
