Buzzing from the dashboard

3 posts in this topic

Just recently I've noticed a loud buzzing which appears to come from the dashboard whenever I get in my car. It seems to start from the time that the car is unlocked and then remains on in the background all the time.

I took it back to the dealer on friday afternoon and he and I both sat in the car without the engine running for about 5-10 mins when it eventually went off.

Neither of us is sure about this--it sounds like something powering down--but last night on my way home from a night out it seemed even louder.

Anybody else get this--maybe it's normal--I don't know.......

When you are driving with the radio on you can't hear it but it's still there..........

Anybody got any theories.............

it could be a relay buzzing but which on is hard to say, get access to the relays and touch each one to see if you can feel the buzz.

i had the same problem on my fiesta, it was so loud you could hardly drive the car, after visiting about 4 garages, eventually it turned out to be the Actuator Valve on the air intake, cant exactly remember the proper name for the part, it wasnt an expensive part, about £19.00..

but to fit it was a pain, half the dashboard had to be removed to fit it, i took it to a ford dealer, the whole job cost about £75-80..as i recall..been fine since..

hope this helps..
