I anyone getting a buzzing / electrical humming noise when the car has been used and switched off/ locked, out side as you walk away , lasts for about 30-60 seconds?
Thinking its a noisey fuel pump..

Yes we get some sort of electronic buzz / whirr ...... sounds like something powering down. Not given it much thought

I have exactly same thing as on the video, but one cannot here that unless the hood/bonnet is open. I had intentionally test driven two CX-30s after I noticed that on mine and guess what - same thing on all of them.

Something to do with the hybrid system? All my Lexus cars make a similar noise even before starting the engine. I just need to open the bonnet and it starts. Goes off after a short while.

The first video is similar to what we see in above post, but this sound is not heard at all when the hood is closed, so its not annoying: here
Second one shows a "beep" sound, which can be heard in quieter environment, it goes up gradually then turns off then again up slowly and off from the moment you turn electronics in: here
I think that whatever you hear is the second sound, because the first one in my case was not heard unless I open the hood.

That high pitch noise in the video is normal as far as I know of the skyactive 2.5. It’s the throttle body servo that makes the noise. It shuts off after a minute or two. My 2015 3 has done that since day 1.

In my case both are constant and do not go away unless you completely turn electrics off. Those may be normal because all cars I tested had exactly the same thing.

Honestly, it does not sound and feel normal for me, but as you confirmed this is on all of them (you probably saw links to videos I attached few posts above), so I assume its OK.
