Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

Besides the fans, what lights are staying on exactly?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The bottom right corner of the dash is lit. I am not near the car now. Abs air bag and traction if i remember correctly.
Expert:  Jay replied 1 year ago.

All of those lights are on when the ignition is off?

Do you have a Test light?

The lights on the dash that stay on with the fan are batt oil service eng soon slip and tcs off
Expert:  Jay replied 1 year ago.

Do you know how to check fuses with the test light? If you do, can you check all fuses in the inside fuse box for me and then tell me which ones are getting power. See link for image of fuse box.

Just provide me the fuse number that is getting power.

Jay the first thing i did was check all of the fuses.All that should be hot is hot. When the key is off there is a running sound. We have determined it is coming from the inside the tranny pan meybe a solenoid is shorting out.
That is where i am at now.
Expert:  Jay replied 1 year ago.

Oh, you could have electronic engine mounts staying on. They are known to short out and back feed the electrical system. Those engine mounts have brown like color connectors. Try unplugging the front and rear electronic engine mount and see if that noise stops and let me know.

We found the motor mounts and disconnected them to no avail. I think it is in the body computer which i have no idea where it is located. Is it something I can just change out or does it have to be programed
Expert:  Jay replied 1 year ago.

There is allot of things this could be. Did you use that image and use the Test light to check fuses with the ignition off to see what fuses had power?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no but I will in the am this really has me stumped and is getting on my nerves
Expert:  Jay replied 1 year ago.

I hear ya.. But I want to see if some fuses are getting power when the car is off. This could be a internal issue in the fuse box

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
ok I will definitely check in the am
