      Has anyone heard a ding noise when they shut off their XC90

      A few days ago when I got home and shut off my car brother asked me why my car dings when it turns off. I was confused and thought he was crazy and then he told me that every time I shut off my car it makes two dinging noises. I thought he was trying to play a joke on me, so I asked him to start the car and turn it off, while I listened outside and sure enough it made two dinging noises when it shut off. You don't really hear it on the interior of the car, but now that I know about it, I can hear it faintly when I try to listen. Mine is a my19 and I haven't heard of anyone experiencing this. Has anyone heard of what I am describing.

      Maybe a sound recording would help. As this vehicle makes a lot of noises when it痴 switched off. Most of them are normal.

      Yet to be sure. Share that Audio recording.

      If you leave the key in the center console it will ding when you open the door to tell you that the key was left in the car. If you leave an extra key in the center console, such as the sport key, this will also happen.

      Yes I'm aware of that, but this can really only be heard on the outside of the car which is why it's weird. You also have to listen for it. I probably sound crazy right now, I will try to post a recording as soon as my car leaves the shop (in for rattles again).

      It sounds electronic, that's why it's so weird to me.

      As soon as I turn off the car, regardless if the door is opened or closed and I have a T6.

      The only electronic beep I know of outside the car is the alarm system turning on when you lock the car. I wonder if some kind of defect is causing the alarm sound to chirp when the car shuts off ? I would take it in as it dosen't sound normal at all

      Same “ding” coming from outside of the car when I shut off my 2019 XC90 T6. I have been trying to find an answer to what it is. Any update?

      Funny that this conversation came up I was asking my self the same question. Yesterday I replaced my oil housing in my 2014 S60 T5. When I started the car I went outside to see if my oil leak was fixed and sure enough it seems to be good no more leaking oil. Anyways when I went to the car to shut it off I had the hood open I turned the car off and took the key with me and I heard 2 or 3 electrical knocking sounds coming from the throttle body. I値l post a video in a few minutes.

      Definitely not the same noise I am hearing. It is a distinct 電ing.

      Right... his is a totally different car. No one wants to post a clip of the noise being discussed in this thread, which makes it pretty hard to help with.
