    So I think mine has an engine gnome. Was working in the garage just a few minutes ago and the truck made that noise it makes when you open the door (already unlocked) there is an electrical hum and a click in/around the front of the engine. It did this, then did it again about 20 seconds later. Went over to the truck, opened the door and it was an identical noise. I started it up to make sure it wasn't the battery dying or something like that and it all seemed to be fine.

    Anyone heard this before? Could the touch pad sensor on my handle be on the fritz, making the truck think someone's about to open it?

    Mine has done this once in a while. I figured maybe it was ford pass pinging it or something.

    I'll try. I think I just randomly stumbled upon it while walking through the garage. I haven't driven it in a couple days.

    My 2018 does a similar random electrical high pitched squealing sound (sound like R2D2 - StarWars but higher pitch) with and without my key anywhere near by. I've heard it hours and days after I last used it and come from lower drivers side engine bay. Sounds like a solenoid activating, but the dealer couldn't duplicate or give me a reason why it would make the noise.

    Mine did this last week. Google it. The search led me to believe it was a boost sensor of some sort. Everytime you open the door or start it the system resets and looks for the reading again. I have not taken it in and dont plan on it until its broken.
