Gremlin Sound?

Anyone hear a soft growl like sound coming from their dashboard when stopped? It sounds a bit like the sound the a/c makes when it's first turned on. It's very quiet but still bugs me! I'm wondering if it has to do with the power steering. It seems to whine when the wheel is locked tight in either direction.

When I have the car off and I'm sitting in it it does the same thing, sounds like it's eating crackers lol but I assume its just the electronics setting off.

I think someone had posted that when the car is off it shuts the recirculating valve closed/open before powering down. If your car is on and you have the a/c blowing , you can check it by hitting the circular button from auto (A) to manual open by pressing it until the light turns off.
Edit* talking about fresh air button just to be a bit clearer.

Sorry, I should have stipulated the car is running, but not moving.
