Whirring and sounds.

Does anyone hear strange sounds coming from under the vehicle when opening the drivers door? I suspect it’s the fuel pump priming and something else but was curious if anyone knew what it is. Thanks.

Yes, I hear clicking and other noises. The dealer told me it’s a lot of the electronics activating when the key is sensed and even more so when the door is opened. It is strange though.

It’s normal. It happens again after sitting for a while when things shut down too.

I get a zipping, zipping should from under drivers seat when door is opened. Happens when car is cool. It also has happened after car is shut off for over 20 hrs and no doors opened or unlocked. Happens quite often, contacted ford twice, told me it is the transfer case learning its settings, would offer no other explainaton, no one else I could talk too. Five different dealers would not touch car, said ford said to leave it alone. Checked 15 other 2020 explorer ST’s at various dealers, none made any noises. None would not even do a diagnostic check. Where do I go from here?

I hear the sounds as well when I open the door. It's always done that. Sometimes when I walk close to it it seems to sense me and make some sounds.

Thanks for the posts. As long as when I drop the ST in Sport mode it continues to plant me in my seat, I won’t worry about it.
