Noise after key off

Hi
I have a R170 320 (2000) and after i key off there is a buzzing/beeping noise coming from underneath the scuttle panel and it lasts for what seems ages, it goes off as soon as i key on or start the car.
Any ideas?

Is the noise immediately after key off or say, several minutes later it starts?

I cant give you a sure-fire formula for success, but I can give
you a formula for failure: try to please everybody all the time.

That's an odd one, there's only the alarm siren that's under there that could be doing that. Remove scuttle (you may need a puller to get the wiper arms off) and unplug the alarm, see what happens

Noise is immediately after i key off, it sounds as if a module may be shutting down perhaps but strangely it goes on for ages

Then my idea is of no consequence.

If it's not that, at least it'd be a good opportunity to check the drain holes that are under there, one on the right, a large one in the middle and a through hole to the one on the left

It sounds like something shutting off but it's usually doors/flaps/etc closing after 10 or so minutes, not that electrical whine.

I don't suppose it is a vacuum damper motor in the HVAC?
