Take your car to the Lincoln dealer and have them check the cruise control for a Recall. There was a problem and the cruise does not have to be on for it to cause serious problems. The sound may be a relay overloading because of the defect.

I have a 2005 Pontiac that makes a hissing noise underneath the car. you can turn the car ignition on without fully starting car and it still makes hissing noise then stops.HELP!!!!!


There is a distinct sound that has a hissing component when you first turn on the key. It will last a second or two when the key is turned to the run position. When the engine started the sound will return and continue to produce the noise so long as the engine is running.

A relatively low noise is normal. If you are concerned check other like cars for the loudness level.

how to check your fuel pump

The pressure regulator on the fuel rail can also produce a sound when the fuel pump is running. The regulator is under the hood and any reasonable noise would not be a concern, A clicking sound is also normal throughout the fuel system when the engine is running created by the fuel injectors cycling.

sounds to me like your battery is no good. replace battery. how ever after the replacement of batery you will need to go to nissan dealer and have the "steering angle sensor"reset, because your VDC light will be ON on the dash.

Everything is dead


Hi eyansdaddy,
Sounds like a bad connection on the battery , check the earth cable on the battery and the one that earths the engine to the bodywork (at the bottom of the engine) if there worn or frayed it can stop the engine from starting. all the best Scott

Knocking noise coming from underneath passenger side dash when starting and turning off vehicle. what causes that?


There are two motor controlled doors that control air flow for your heating/cooling system. These doors are located in the A/C ductwork under the right side of the dash. When you turn off the ignition, the doors close through the action of the small electric motor and gears is an attached control box. The knocking sound that you hear is a gear slipping in the control box as the control motor continues to run after the air door has been closed. I have no idea why the door motor continues to run. The solution for me with my 94 burb was to disconnect the electrical lead to the control box. If you have lots of patience and very small hands you may be able to replace the offending module. However the root cause seems to be the door motor continuing to run.

My Honda passport will not start. Its not the battery because the lights are on in the dash and battery is good i do hear a clicking below but not starter fusses are good however is there a fuse in the...


The clicking sound indicates that the battery is too low to start the vehicle. Accessories such as dash lights draw very little current, so they will work even when the battery is nearly depleted. Try removing the battery cables (negative first) and cleaning the cable ends and battery posts with a wire brush or sandpaper. Then check the water levels if yours is a serviceable battery, add distilled water if needed, replace and tighten the cables, then try to jump start from another vehicle. If it starts, let it run for a while and see if it will start again by itself. If so, that may be all you need. If it continues to lose its charge, you will need a new battery. If the vehicle will not start even with the jump, you may need a new starter.

Rapid clicking noise coming from under the dashboard.


If you have a tape cassette player in the dash, this can cause a sound like what you are describing. Even though a tape is not in it,,, it can still freak out and cause this sound. Had this happen on several of my old vehicles. Let us know if this helps. Leave feedback for others to see. Thanks.
