Need some help - when you put your key in the ignition, does your radio/cd/phone come on? Or do you have to turn the key to the "on" position before they come on? Just got my car out of the shop and I believe before it went in I had to turn the key before anything would work. Been having problems with the electronics, so maybe it wasn't right before. There is also a noise when I turn the car off that wasn't there before, kind of like something is still on, but it goes off after a few seconds. [?]

With regard to your noise after shut off, does it sound like whirring? If so, it could just be your A/C fan. Try driving around for a while with the "EC" button lit. Then turn off your car and listen for the noise. Still there?

Hope your problems find a quick remedy.

Sounds normal, the noise could be the electric fuel pump or the fan. Somebody that has more experience than me can chime in here, and give you some more details.

I don't think it is the fan, but it could be the fuel pump.

I just never noticed it before and now I'm probably a little paranoid. Although I could swear I had to turn the key to get things to come on and now I don't. Before I approach the service dept, I would like to at least appear to know what I'm talking about. Thanks for the input - Now I don't feel totally lost.
