Based in this (and other) assessments I double down on the theory:I never heard this and was wondering what the complaints were about. Yesterday I put my ear up to the screen and could hear it. I basically need my head to be even with the steering wheel and an ear pointed at it to hear it. I can 0% hear it from my driving position.
Ugh. This just started for me. It's definitely coming from the secondary screen behind the steering wheel. I didn't have this problem on delivery of the vehicle but it started after I plugged in my car to charge last night, so I think it's a grounding issue. Despite disconnecting the car from the charger that came with the car, the noise persists.
I will be taking a look at an FE tomorrow that has become available and will try to see if it also has the screen noise. Very interesting to hear that you did not have the issue prior to charging the car.
If the buzz is like Methorians' it will drive me nuts. If its significantly lower may be not. That video Methorian posted causes me discomfort just listening to it.Just in case Ford really is watching these threads...
A noise issue like this really would be a major concern for me. I know some people are saying it's not a big deal, so I don't know if their car just doesn't have the problem or the sound just doesn't bother them. Noises like that drive me bonkers.
PLEASE complain about it to your dealer. Even if there is nothing they can do, at least Ford corporate will be made aware. If enough people report it, theyI just took delivery Friday and I can confirm my car has the same buzz. With the car "on" and radio/hvac off it is audible from normal seating position. It really is kind of frustrating. Turning the radio on drowns it out but I still don't like it. Hoping for a future TSB/fix.
PLEASE report it to your dealer so Ford corporate will know about your issue. If Ford doesn't know how many are affected, they might not feel the need to address.

My dealers service department hates me. I bring in so many broken Fords that I own for warranty work...I'm not 100% sure why I keep buying them. I have a PTS login and whenever I put my VIN in it asks me to submit feedback so I may send in feedback that way.PLEASE complain about it to your dealer.

So far my biggest issue/complaint is a pretty obvious high-pitched electrical whine that seems to come from somewhere around the small instrument cluster screen. As soon as I get in the car and it "wakes up" it's immediately obvious to me, and incredibly annoying. I do have sensitive hearing, and have usually pointed out these kinds of noises to others who don't hear them, but this one is blaringly obvious. Without music to drown it out, it's downright obnoxious!
Any other Mach-E owners experience/notice this? I even had my partner get in and he hears it, but isn't as annoyed by it.
