I am familiar with both of these problems, but in my experience they are unrelated.
The clicking from the dash sounds like the flasher cycling very fast:
Problem: The combination switch (turn signals/wipers) on the steering column is shorting out.
Fix 1. Go to the dealer, leave your car and pay through both nostrils for them to fix it.
OR
Fix 2. At your own risk, spray contact cleaner (some have used WD40) into the combination switch while operating the turn signals. (No guarantees, but it's worked on two of my MKIV TDIs)
As far as the automatic transmission, I bear bad news: These are known pieces of...junk. They often die quickly, they are very expensive to replace, and consensus in the TDI community is that attempts to repair them amount to throwing good money after bad. Hopefully your problem is minor. I wish you the best of luck.

A jolt from the rear of the car when the auto gear box changes in low gear and a noise from the near side rear


jolt from the rear of the car when the auto gear box changes in low gear is a common fault in the older s types. most of the time is a sign of the gear box on its way out. is worth checking gear box oil level and oil quality though. noise from near side rear would probably be the damper rose joint which make a knocking noise when they wear.

The dash lights for odometer and gear indicator is out on my 1998 Buick Century. All other dash lights are okay. Is it a fuse? Where are the fuses?


maybe but sounds like a couple of lights have burned out,. the owners manual should tell you where the fuse box is located. The dash light for the odometer/gear indicator may be accessible from under the dash, get an auto maintance repair manual from the local auto parts store , perfably a chiltons for about 20.00. It will help u loctae the dash lights and the fuse box more readily.

98 ford windstar has clicking noise under dash and won't start


The clicking noise is most likly the starter solinoid cycling in and out. This is due to low battery voltage. charge the battery, then have the battery and charging system tested. Some auto supply stores will do this for free for you in the hopes of selling parts

good luck
