There is a high-pitched whine from my 08 Escalade that happens when I shut the engine off. It lasts about 5 seconds. What's it from?

Are you hearing it inside the car or outside? Front of car or rear? Do you get same noise if you turn on ignition without starting engine?

I think it might be the HID's. I get the same high pitched whine. Its not loud. Just noticable.

After you turn off the vehicle the lights remain on for a bit. So manually shut them off and they whine cuts off immediately.

I put HID's in my previous 07 Tahoe, and they I had the same whine after HIDs were installed.

It's most likely as said your HID's, they do make that sound

That would be called excessive whine then. :)

I tried the turn the headlights off bit but the whine remains. It's coming from the front of the car. I can live with it - just curious. Nice humor on the ex-girlfriend bit. Ever thought about standup comedy? Have a seat and think about it!
