i have the V60 CC - 5 cylinder turbo - I get a distinct metal on metal sound for a couple of seconds after I turn off the engine - the best way to describe is a high pitch (low volume) metal on metal sound - do i need to take it to the dealer? thanks.

I would. This is not normal.

Our 2014 5-cylinder S60 has a high pitched electrical tone in the engine bay that continues for a minute os so after shutting down. It also starts when we unlock the car before starting. Could it be that?

This is common (our T6 does this) but I would not describe this as a "metal on metal sound".

I don't know about unlocking the car but usually this sound occurs after shutting down the car because the airbag is still on. When the sound shuts off, the airbag sensor turns off, therefore it will no longer deploy if the car somehow crashes. When you go to start the car up again, the sensor kicks back on, but because the engine is running you can't hear it.

My 2012 T-6 makes the same sound. Hard to describe but high pitch almost metallic like sound. Occurs as you turn off car for a split second. Often wondered about it but always forgot to mention when the car was at the dealer. It appears from everyone's response as normal.
Keep us posted about your experience with the CC. I am close to ordering one.

The AC compressor solenoid makes noise once the car is turned off for a few minutes. Kind of like a buzzing sound. I've had mine replaced. You sure the other noise isn't just exhaust contraction? like a metallic "pinging" sound?

Probably a purge valve on the evap emissions canister. Last several "modern" cars I have had did this, varying sounds, but was this part. There are, however, any number of other systems that may have a shutdown feature that makes noise.

thanks everyone - it seems to be normal based on the responses - my description might not have been accurate but it does happen when I start the car and apply the brake while backing up and after i shut off the engine.

regarding the CC - i'm loving it - drive it only in sport mode - the car handling improves immensely in sports mode even on local roads - on the freeway it's pure fun. my only regret is not waiting to get one with HID lights and the upgraded music system - a car with my specs was at least 3 months away according to my dealer when i got this in feb - i needed a car immediately.
