No, the car doesn't need to be driven for the noise to occur. It occurs at any of these situations:
1) car is parked, start the engine, noise comes on
2) or noise comes on randomly any time during driving. Doesn't matter if you are turning, or braking, or speeding, or cruising. Could happen any time
3) car is driven but *just* parked and engine *just* stopped, noise can sometimes continue for another 10-20 seconds
So, any of the situations above could happen. Even all of them could happen during one single ride. This is why it is so frustrating. It is just so hard to pinpoint the problem.
Thank you for your help so far, I appreciate it! Yeah I hope someday someone figures out this issue and posts the fix here :-)
