Fiesta Zetec S Rapid Series Of Clicks Under Bonnet When Turn Off Ignition
Posted 05 March 2013 - 08:45 PM
To recap - I get at least a dozen rapid clicks (about 3 per second) - loud enough to be heard when standing near front of vehicle and distinctive enough to make me think - eh?? FYI This is a 4mth old car and I have had it from new, 2600miles on clock. 1.6 petrol.

Open the bonnet and get someone to look at the engine while you turn it off.

On mine it comes from the two oil control solenoids (small cylinders near the cambelt end) on the camshafts for the ti-vct units. they are only fitted to the 1.6 petrol. i think its just resetting itself for the next engine start.?..
(car. is 2011 3500miles)

Mine's a 1.4 tdci and does it too -- it's definitely not the metal 'pinging', it sounds in too much of a rapid sequence for that. I think it sounds like relays resetting or something like that
Listen to this video, when the guy shuts the engine off you hear the same noise
I think it's normal - nothing to do with the AC though as mine has been off for ages
edit: video doesn't seem to be working try this youtube.com/watch?v=h73iNUNOhPU
