I have a rattle like noise I guess, something that almost sounds like a weird insect or small rodent in my dash. As I accelerate it makes the noise for about 3 seconds then starts to diminish as the car warms up. It also sounds like it is in the front defrost vent area but what I need to do is have someone else drive so I can troubleshoot. Is there a fan for the navigation screen? Because it sounds like a fan hitting the edge of housing. It is louder than any simple dash squeak and it has started to really piss me off. ?
Anyone else have or hear of such an issue with dash noises?

I have never had such an issue... That sounds like a nightmare to diagnose.

Have you brought it to an automotive repair facility to get it checked?

I finally figured it out. It was the garage door opener in visor. I had to put it in the slide out extender because visor was to thick and as a result it would vibrate and make like a mouth organ noise. The only reason why I caught it was I saw vibrating while the noise was happening, it would throw it’s own voice and sound like it was coming from the front of the dash, so happily that mystery is solved.

Glad to know it isn't an issue inside the car, but an issue with a quick fix. Thanks for sharing!
