After ignition is switched off, there is a noise
Like an electric motor running sound coming from
passenger side under hood near firewall . I checked
and part says "abs"on it with metal lines coming out of oit
From what you have described here this sound like your ABS (anti lock brake) pump/motor assembly running.

This can happen in some cases if the control relay for this is stuck on or if the electronic brake control module that controls this pump is faulty internally and is keeping this pump running like this here.

This does have to be tested and best done by either a shop with experience with this vehicle or a dealer to see if you have a faulty power control relay being stuck on or if the control unit is faulty causing this issue.

I hope this info has helped here,if you need anything else let me know before you rate my help here.Thanks Pete.

Where are the following components found on
a 2005 kia amante :
1) abs power relay
2) abs control
3) abs control module
Your abs control module and hydraulic unit should be located on the passenger side of the vehicle under the hood,your brake lines from your master cylinder should lead to it.

Unfortunately my info doesnt show where the abs relay is located on this model here.
