2020 sportage makes noises like electric motors turning when parked and no keys in ignition. This happens daily and dealer has no idea. I just want to know if this is a normal condition. Every time I go in the garage I hear this and it's a matter of seconds. People have commented about this when parked outside also.

I suspect the noise you are hearing is the EVAP leak detection pump running. These typically engage about 4-5 hours after the vehicle was last run.

The fact that the dealer couldn't tell me if this was normal to hear made me nervous. Today I opened the hood so I can narrow it down. Makes me feel better that this could be a normal occurrence.
