Question about 2008 Mercury Sable

1 Answer

2008 Sable, 57k miles. When I turn on the ignition, there is a steady clicking noise that lasts between 15-30 seconds that originates from under the dash on the drivers side, near the accelerator. Any ideas on what the problem could be would be greatly appreciated.

My 2008 Sable, 22,000 miles. I have a steady clicking sound under the instrument panel and the car won't start. Right now, my vehicle was towed to the dealership, so I should find out something next week.

2008 Ford Taurus, clicking noise that lasts about 15 seconds when turn on A/C or heat.

There may be something in the blower motor, that has either fallen into the defrost duct, or your fan may be going out. Remove the cab filter or remove the fan cover and investigate.

I hear a click click click then a pause then click click click again when I go to start my 2008 mercury sable the clicking starts when the accessories are activated right before the motor turns over it...

This noise is indeed coming from the dash and it is caused by a part called the air temperature control blend door actuator motor. The noise is a tiny electric gear drive that moves the door and controls air temperature jumping teeth due to a defective sticking blend door inside the air ducting. To replace these parts requires the dash be removed from the car, a 12-14 hour job.

Engine oil light flashes on for fractions of a second then remains off for several minutes before repeating. started same time noise from engine began, noise follows rpm of motor. clicking like a valve...

the oil level may be good and quality may be good, but the oil pump may be going out considering the valve/engine noises. Have it checked quickly, before this engine locks up.

Dead battery key stuck in place can't remove clicking noise under hood?

Open the hood and check to see what is clicking and jump start the vehicle to see if it starts.Once it starts then turn the ignition off and see if the key will come out.Also check your mileage and if you have under 36k miles then it is still under warranty.Take it to the dealership and have them check it out.Hope this helps.Good luck.

I have an 03 malibu with 57K or so miles, it has just started stahling out and not starting properly. It will turn over like it wants to start, but wont.????

If the THEFT PROTECTION lamp is blinking, the VATS system has diabled your fuel pump. Turn the ignition switch to ON, leave it on till the lamp stops blinking. Turn the key to the OFF position, start the car.
Most likely you need to have the ignition switch replaced. Malibu and Impala are notorious for this issue.

2003 Mercury Sable - transmission jerking

This is a front wheel drive vehicle and has no power-train components in the rear of the car. The noise coming from the back is not related to your transmission. I would highly reccommend going to a ford dealership as these are typically trust-worthy and always use OEM parts. I also have an 03 sable with 101k miles it has always been reliable and has original transmission. It is possible something else is hard ****.
