Just this past couple of days i noticed a small motor sound while opening the driver side door. Does anybody have any idea what that is? sound like it's from the engine compartment but i haven't isolated it since it's only happened twice now and the sound only comes once when you open the door and if you close and open again it doesn't sound again. Anybody know what it is? any help's appreciated.

Re: Small motor sound when i open the front driver side door??? (iD)

Are you sure it's not the power seats? The seats automaticaly adjust in the new models when the door is opened. This only happens if you have power seats though.
If it is the fuel pump though, why? Every time I open my door the fuel pump kicks on? Even when not driving?

Its the fuel pump priming up the system. I dont have power seats so I know its not that. I am very sure that it is the fuel pump, its normal so you definetly dont need to loose sleep over it.
