Another "What is this noise?" thread.

Greetings and happy Easter all,

Listen here...
986 S engine compartment whine - YouTube

It only happens with the ignition switch in the on position. Obviously, I'm not sure if it goes away when the engine is started.

Anyone familiar with this sound?

It sounds like the secondary air pump. Mine is a little louder but stops after a few minutes.
