  • Fast ticking noise coming from behind the dash somewhere

    We have a fast ticking noise coming from behind the dash on the drivers side. If you stick ya head in the foot well near the pedals it gets louder. It doesn't happen when you turn on accessory but does when the key is turned to on (engine not running) and when the engine is running. Turning on/off lights, stereo, all accessories doesn't help. It's not coming from the engine bay.
    Any ideas what it might be? Maybe a dodgy relay?

      I wonder if it might be the traction/abs control playing up. Mine sometimes does it when moving from reverse to drive, even if I'm stationary.

                It's got to do with the climate air. Mine does it too. It seems to happen at a certain temp where it is deciding between heating or cooling. At the moment, there is no sound because it is pretty hot around here.

                  Thanks Andrew. When the noise comes back I'll turn off the AC and see what happens but that certainly fits the bill. Funny we've never noticed it until the last couple weeks and we've owned it for 1.5 years.

                      Sorry didn't see the reply to my question about climate air but Amts has said it anyway. There is a little flap control on drivers side of centre dash and you can actually put your hand on the bit making the noise. I remember some one sticking a tad of grease on the bit to stop it chattering causing the noise... Cheers Steve

                        I might be wrong but the noise is still there with the AC off. I think over time the wear and tear is enough to let the flap make that noise. Try what Steve said. It hasn't annoyed me enough to do something about it as there are worse noise coming from the back seats.

                          You're right, the noise started again today and did it when the AC was off as well. The misses is trying to record the noise and send it to me to post.

                            Happened to me this morning. What I did was changed the temp from 23degC down to 19degC and the noise slowly disappeared. AC system on and off and the noise is still there.

                              This is the noise recorded on the wifes S4. It sounds more rattly in the recording than it really is.
