Default Weird under hood noise 2005 turbo convert

I am having some other problems, but I will cover those on another post later.
This is a first time situation that happened yesterday. When I shut the car off, there was a sound like an electric fuel pump priming or a vacuum pump coming from under the hood. It lasted for about 2 to 3 seconds, and ended with a slight "click" noise.
Never heard it before. I went under the hood, and it seemed to be coming from the under side of the engine, but definitely from under the hood.
I just can't pin point it.
Any ideas?
My other problem, which I will discuss in detail on another post is the instrument cluster died, and I am working on that, but I can't see the 2 things having any relationship to each other.

Did you have the A/C on?

No and yes, but give me your thoughts on that, because I do have a problem with it.
I put on a new compressor a year or so ago, and it was blowing refrigerator cold.
Now it's outside temp.
I was going to get a recharge, but if you have an idea, lets hear it!
The car has 38,000 miles, and I bought it in 2006, with 32000.
Hardly ever drive it, as it was a toy, and not much more.
The car is spotless, and perfectly maintained, but suddenly it seem to be developing a lot of quirks.

My 1st thought is that shut down your PT just as the compressor was cycling...either from it being low on freon or a bad pressure switch.
First thing to do would be to drive it with the A/C off (Defroster also turns on A/C) and see if sound returns.

I will give that a shot. I know the compressor is kicking in when it's on, as the RPM does a quick drop, and at low RPM (idle) you can feel it.
I will let you know what happens.
I am going to put up my other post in a minute regarding the instrument cluster.
