Default Something is running while my Crosstrek is Off?

I wasnt sure if this is the right place to post this but am almost sure the electric motor I hear running while my Crosstrek is sitting turned off with the key in my pocket has something to do with the rear shocks. Also I believe the rear of the car is rising slowing, anyone else hear this?

Can you describe to use what the sound is? Is it a constant clicking? A constant whine? A fading whine?

The sound is coming from the rear, Iam pretty sure its a small compressor pumping up the rear shocks, Ill call the service department today and ask them if something is wrong.

That's strange, I haven't noticed anything like that with my Crosstrek. I'll make a point to take a listen the next few times I drive it to see if I can notice anything.

Welcome, by the way.

I got under it today and checked it out, the sound is the compressor that pumpes up the rear shocks, this only happens when I haul my 100+ pound Rot-Sheppard mix of a dog in the back and after it has sit for a while. If you look in the rear fenders near the strut you can see the blue and white air line running to the shock, so I take it this is normal.

Jackson County, which is about 20 mins from Charleston, the weather has been perfect for break in, I hit a 1000 miles today. Ill still run it easy to get better gas mileage and hopefully a trouble free vehicle. Ive got a picture of him in the back with a blanket over the seats layed down and he has plenty of room. Ill try to post it later, I dont think Ive uploaded any to photobucket since I bought the car. Ill do that tonight
