Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It's tough to diagnose a noise without hearing it in person but the first thing that comes to mind is a failed alternator overrunning clutch. Overrunning clutch failures aren't uncommon on these and it would often give sort of a winding down type noise just after the key is turned off.

Does the noise come from under the hood?

it's coming from under the hood. It sounds like you're letting out a big breath of air as soon as I turn the key off, not a winding down noise.
