I hCear a continuous clicking sound and smell a foul odor both coming from inside the dash of my 2004 Toyota Camry. It does not appear to cause any problems with the running and operation of the vehicle. I have turned off the radio and A/C and heater but the clicking and foul odor continues.

SOURCE: all dash warning lights came

Hatterasnc,

You're alternator has gone bad and the vehicle was running on battery power. The "clicking" sound is your now dead battery that does not have enough power to turn over the starter. You might also want to check your power steering pump for leak. This is a know problem with early LS400s and will most likey be the cause of the alternator failure. I just dropped $1050.00 to fix the very same promblems you have.

I have an 05 hse with the same issue, prought it to an electrical specialist who went in the boot and unkinked the infrared wires from all components, it worked for about a month and a few days ago it started again,when you say you "deoxed" the bluetooth harness....do you mean the nokia brain in the left rear boot or the cell phone dock in the front center console??? I have an appointment with the dealership tommorow and i hope they find the WIRING issue instead of trying to have me buy $5000 in new computers that wont fix the problem,its a common issue in this model with the logic 7 just wish someone who has already cleared this hurdle would post a solution:(...I will keep everyone updated

Burning plastic smell when cold out run heater and fan inside car and out


Are you loosing radiator fluid. sometimes the heater core will rupture and you will smell burn odor. also check for strange rubbing sounds or screeching coming from the blower fan motor. or engine exhaust manifolds are hot when car is on, make sure nothing is leaning on them which will cause a burn odor. Any odor coming from outside will find it's way inside through the fresh air vents.

How do you get access to the dash fan. There are mice in there someplace ?


Some times the odor comes from the condensation after running the A/C...Run your heater on high for a few minutes, to dry out the condensation...I had this problem with my vehicle.. This did the job...Good Luck! And GOD BLESS !

2008 impala, terrible nauseating odor from heater


sounds like a mouse nest in hvac system, no smell because when using ac it doesn't use outside air, probably a nest on the screen at the hvac air intake or if you have a a cabin air filter check in there. many times rodents make nests have babies and then the car moves and they cannot feed the babies and so they die and rot smell comes into car. usually it is not hard to access because there should be a screen between the outside and inside under the cowl cover, if no screen and the little buggers vot into your hvac duct system this could be a much bigger problem entailing removal of dash completely. most likely this isn't the case, good luck

Check the fan on broken blades - even a small part missing can cause unusual sounds. If parts are new / serviced - smell can be due to labels getting hot and emitting slight burning smell. Classic are exhaust pipes with partnumber labels left on there. If he smell stays, something in the interior might come from a crash car which was partly burned.

2.0 ford engine has new timing belt idles rough but can run smooth while driving has a very foul odor coming from exhaust and has severe blow back when you remove oil filler cap


Sounds like your off timing. Make sure that your timing gears are set on the marks properly. The foul odor your smelling may be because your car is running rich.

2000 Camry LE bad odor from a/c heater cabin vents


Possible the smell is coming from the bacteria living on your ac evapourator. You can buy a spray for this that you set off inside the vehicle. Follow the instructions on the tin.

It also helps to spray some Fridgi-Fresh or Fridgi-Freeze stuff on the cabin air filter and into the A/C condensor. It kills the odor causing bacteria. A local auto parts store should stock it. Might run you about $20 for a bottle of it.
