Motor/Fan Noise with A/C on

Motor/Fan Noise with A/C on

I’m not sure if this noise is normal coming from my model 3 but I noticed it while the car was parked in my driveway when I opened the door. I had the A/C on. Here’s a video of the noise: https://youtu.be/wq0LZJp0KmU

It just started getting warmer here in Northern California since I purchased the car so maybe this is normal when you it gets hotter outside. Does this sound normal or should I take it to my local SC?

Mine started doing that after the 8.5 update even with the AC off.

I noticed ours doing that yesterday. I figured it was just the discobobulator modulator cooling off. Seems normal to me.

Glad to know it doesn’t seem to be an issue.

@M8B your car must have new hardware, mine uses a gonkulator to cool off, but if you ask me how it works, all I can say is:”I know nothing about nothing “ ;)

Mine does that also. It’s a combination of the cooling fans for the AC and the same coolant running through the battery.
Have you heard a model S or X at the SuperC? Nosier than poop.
Yours and my M3 noises are fine. No worries my brother.

It finally got hot enough to need maximum cool in Northern CA, and just noticed this too! Thank you forum people!

Same sound here. Ready for lift off.
