Ford Focus 2012 loud popping noise without it being on??

Asked by Mar 19, 2016 at 07:36 PM about the 2012 Ford Focus Titanium Hatchback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I went to open the trunk of my 2012 Ford Focus and
this very loud popping almost bubbling noise just
started out of no where. The car wasn't on and
haven't been turned on prior. I turned in on after the
noise stopped and no lights or warnings appeared
and no fluids were low or visible leaks.

My 2013 Ford Focus has done the same thing twice. The popping sounds like hail hitting my roof and goes on for about a minute or two. Seems to happen when there is a big fluctuation in temperature outside. Kind of scary so I usually wait outside the car until it stops. It happens as soon as I open the door.
