'13 TCH fuel pump running while parked in the garage

I went into my garage last night 4 hours after using my car. I could hear something running but wasn't sure what it was. My garage frig, my landscape light timer, noise from my 2 float chargers maintaining my boat batteries??? Turns out as soon as I turned my Camry on and off the noise stopped, it must have run 5-10 minutes while I tried to figure out what it was. It changed tone at one point but never went off until I cycled the ignition.

I checked the gas cap thinking it may be related but it was tight. I'm assuming that it has something to do with keeping fuel pressure in the lines. Is this normal?

Sounds awfully like what wife's RX350 does. In about 4 hrs after parked, a buzzing sound comes from where the fuel refill door area is. Buzzes for good 20 or so minutes.
I found that that is normal - it is EVAP something purging something. Her's is 2011 model.

Sometimes I think my TCH likes to screw with my mind by making noises at random intervals.
snookwhaler and Sparkland like this.
