Loud Clicking Noise When Car is Off

A couple of months ago, my car starting making a loud clicking noise (almost sounds like when an automatic antenna won't go up) when I opened the door, that sounds like it;s coming from the forward part of the dashboard. The clicking noise might or might not go off when the car is started. Recently I have noticed it doing this even when I have not opened the door (such as I am walking by the car and I can hear it clicking). We do not have an automatic antenna on it. Any ideas? I can't find anyone who has posted something else like this online.

clicking?
if it is a ticking sound, check your oil level.
if after you shut down, then you probably had the air conditioning on? If so, normal.
does it drain the battery?

SOURCE: Loud clunking noise in 2008 Pontiac G5

HI, i would inspect the strut assembly for loose structure asap. i would also inspect the wheel knuckle and rotor and tie rod ends for loose fit as well. inspect thoroughly.

Its most likely the CV-joint assembly. the boot may have slipped off, allowing the joint assembly to dry up. i advise to inspect all the above before looking at the CV-half joint assembly and boot.

SOURCE: Grand Am clicking noise

I really doubt this can't be fixed, the car is 8 years old and most likely it may have some worn components in the front end like the Constant Velocity joints, also have the btrake pad anti rattle springs replaced or checked for condition, the brakes can make this noise if the springs loose there tension.

Cannot start loud fast clicking noise


Clicking noise would indicate starter solenoid faulty! This would also be the case if battery low but since you have a new battery you can look at the starter solenoid!

It sounds like the catalytic converter might have come loose causing a loud exhaust leak. Did they repair the problem that caused the converter to plug up like a defective oxygen sensor or coil pack?

Sounds like the starter need to be replace or rebuilt.
The clicking is due to the starter still partially engaged. Grooves are worn on the contactors and the plunger is sticking in the starter.

Just replaced Serptine Belt now car making loud


It's not uncommon for a new belt to require re-tightening soon after it's been replaced. Check the belt for any excessive slack (shouldn't have more than 1/2 -3/4" ). A loose belt would be one possible cause for the loud noise you describe.
