Question about 2001 Lexus Gs 300

1 Answer

GS 300 vibration or clicking noise behind instrument panel!!!

Whenever my ignition key is in the on position or the car is running I have a funny vibration that come from my dashboard. I thought it might be the CD player but it's not. The vibration starts then stops and stats and stops throughout my journey. Thanks for any help you can give me. i think my problem is the same except it's more like a gargling or rapid clicking stream sound which goes on for a few seconds and stops. it sounds like a bunch of muffled relays chattering. The sound is coming somewhere behind the front console. The two driver side doors stopped responding to my remote and the inside switch. I have to lock using my key. They do open with remote however!!! strange. Any ideas anyone?

How can I fix Poping and crackling nosie behind gage cluster when turn on or running?


Noise are very hard to diagnose if you are there, so over the key board it is darn near impossible. Please have a trained technician listen to this.

Why will my jeep not start


Likely that the "clicking sound" behind the dashboard is the IGNITION RELAY. Start by replacing the ignition relay (inexpensive and easy to replace).

  6. Press the spring-loaded pin on the side of the ignition switch with a small screwdriver. Pull the lock cylinder out by the key.

Im trying to instal my tach on my 99 hyundai accent hatchback witch wire on the coil that i connect too


The "Green" wire from the after-market tachometer will connect to the (-) negative side of the ignition coil.

The "Red" wire from the tachometer will connect to an ignition source that has power only when the key is in the "Run" and "Start" position, usually at a "IGN" source on the fuse panel.

The "Yellow" or "White" wire from the tachometer will connect to the instrument panel lighting fuse in the fuse panel usually marked "LPS" or "IP" and there should be a source next to the instrument panel lighting fuse to connect the wire.

The "Black" wire should be connected to a good body ground, and if the tachometer is not properly grounded anyone sitting in the vehicle while the engine is running will receive a mild electric shock from the ignition coil primary voltage whenever anything metal inside of the vehicle is touched.
