Hi 2010 insight, is it normal when you come to a stop and the engine cuts out you hear a whistling sound? like "EEEEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeeEEEEEEEE" I can only assume it's the IMA system running it's the sound of electricity. 80k miles no check engine light or anything. Also, the A/C is off so is the fan.:)

Please have your brakes checked. They may be down to the noise makers to let you know they need replacement.

Evap Canister purging? Can't be the IMA as the engine isn't turning (engine cuts out) per your statement?

Could be a failing fan module

It could be a bad fan module in the hybrid system. I say this because that's what happened to me last year. I could hear a whistling sound coming from the rear while the engine was shut off. After it had lasted for about a month, the hybrid system suddenly halted the moment the fan module finally died and an IMA amber poped up in the dashboard. Of course I didn't know what went wrong when it happened. I was later told by a dealer that the fan module had died. They had to run diagnostics twice and initially charged me $900+ total but later agreed to lower the charge to $700~. Was a big pain that I hope won't happen to you.
