Dear Mike,
Is the weather somewhat warm where you are. This maybe the rear blower fan running down which tends to put what seems like a hum through the vents above the control unit. Had me stumped for a while.
Ciao,

Mike,
As Trish said, there is a small fan on the back of the control unit that sucks air through a temp sensor to monitor cabin temp. Mine made a wurring sound which could be heard when the ignition was switched off, like you say for up to a few minutes. Obviously mine was a bit worn. I sprayed a small amount of spray grease into the fan (from the back not through the sensor!) and this quietened it down, it can still be heard just but probably only because I'm listening for it.

Richard.
