Chirping Noise while Driving

Sun Sep 03, 2017 6:13 am

Hello forum friends, has anyone experienced this while driving their IMIEV?

Note: this noise happens with the a/c on or off at highway speeds, and never happens when accelerating, deceleration and or at city speeds.

When I'm cruising at highway speeds I get this chirping noise from the car. I can't tell if it's coming from the front or back - maybe front passenger side?

You can also hear it when the radio is playing.

The chirping seems to happen when the car is at highway speed and the power needle is in a neutral position or +\- 5% on the power gauge.

Other than that the car works perfectly.
