Hello. I have a 2012 xB. I noticed a high pitched whine coming from my engine when the key is in the on position. I cannot identify the sound and it is constant and loud. It almost sounds as if it coming from my tranny. I never noticed it before. Any ideas?

Or can anyone else verify that they have the same sound?

Other than a pro installed sub woofer and speakers it is stock. I have no mods installed (yet). I have a factory head unit as well. If the engine is off and the key is in the on position I can here it. It is a constant high pitched whine. I can hear it in the cab and it is extremely loud. Like an electronic whine. I can't tell if it goes away when the car starts as it is loud enough to drown it out. As far as questions, ask away.

I don't think it is the fuel pump. It sounds as if it is coming from my transmission to be honest.

I can tell you with certainty it ian't my speakers. It is co0ming from inside the engine bay. I can hear I very loudly when I put my ear between the motor and the intake. so odd...
