I have an unusual popping/loud clicking sound when I enter the vehicle and sit in the drivers seat. It does it again when I exit the drivers seat. It appears to come from underneath the seat or vehicle. At first I thought it was the suspension under the car but realized it is when I sit or exit the drivers seat with the key fob. Does anyone else notice the same thing?

Are you hearing the electronic steering column lock, unlocking (when you sit down) and locking (when you get up)?

Yes, the same thing happens to me. Must be something in the seat registering that someone is in the car.

maybe its the battery relays kicking in ?
Yes, that is what I am thinking, the battery relay connecting. Only I think it is rather loud. My chev Volt makes a sound, but nothing like this. Just checking to see if this is 'normal' and others experience the same.

Nope, not the steering column lock. The sound occurs as soon as I sit in the drivers seat, but before I touch the steeting wheel.
