Strange whining electronic noise

Post by Dave987 » Fri Jul 31, 2020 6:20 am

Hi All,

I have just received a new Skoda Kodiaq 1.5 DSG and this whining sound is coming from generator and/or engine. There is a click at the end of the video and the noise stops. Any idea, is this normal? Only doing between 5 sec to 1 min, when ignition is on, but the engine is not running. After it stops.



Thank you,
David

Sorry I haven't a clue. It sounds like something electrical (Solenoid??) turning something off on a timer. Door locks, alarm setting??
Better wait for ZACH to look in, he's far more techy than I am.

Just had a call with Skoda and they say it is normal. High pressure fuel is pre-loading, so when I sit in it is ready to start. Not sure as my Octavia 1.4 TSI DSG (2018) doesn't have this "feature". :geek:

I have had this whine from new, (two years). Wondered what it was. 🤔

Now I know. 😊

As I eluded to on Briskoda it was the high pressure fuel pump priming which is normal.

Thank you Zach. I have read your answer on Briskoda and the Skoda dealer called me back after your answer and told me the same.
You saved my day as I was quite nervous about it in the last days when I first hear it in the garage.
