Hello all,
I recently got a 2017 Beetle and noticed that when first getting in the car as well as when turning it off I get a small buzz sound from the steering wheel, almost like the sound of a small drill. Also, the steering light flashes orange for just a moment when first getting in the car (before starting engine). Is this something that everyone’s Beetle does?

Is the car, still under warranty (?); if so, take it to your vw dealer for warranty diagnostics and needed repairs. You might make, post a video; of the issue and members with a similar car, can compare your symptoms, confirm if it is "normal". A auto scan with a vw specific scan tool (like vcds by ross tech); would be a good thing to do, see if there are any trouble codes, post anything you find. Thanks.

If its only for a second or two, its normal. I believe its the car unlocking the steering wheel or something. I know all of our newer VWs/Audis do the same thing.
