Question about 1995 Jaguar XJ6

1 Answer

Clicking relay???? Hi, i have a 1995 XJ6 and i can hear a rapid clicking noise from the steering column area. It sounds like a chattering relay. It seems to happen more when the steering wheel is central (driving in a straight line). Can this be rectified easily? Would i be able to do it myself to keep the costs down? Many thanks in advance of your help. Regards Ralph

    Is this noise constant or just when you start the car for a few seconds?

My daughters wipers just stopped working on her 2008 Jetta Volkswagen. I noticed when I turn the key on and move the lever up or down I hear a slight clicking sound somewhere around the steering wheel. I'm...

Let's keep it simple check fuses and relays by swapping around the relays in the fuse box. IF THIS IS NOT THE PROBLEM . Most of the vehicle'll especially havea multifunction switch operating turn signals wipers headlights. If it goes bad you will hear clicking and grinding in the steering column it's just plastic junk made to go bad. Replacing will require removal of steering wheel and removing wire harness attached to switch which should run down your column if you are not comfortable with this take it to a dealer. Hope this helps

I own a 2004 Saturn Vue. It keeps clicking. My Bf thinks its a hazard relay switch but I can't find one online. I keep hearing a clicking noise. It is not constant noise. It is random. It sometimes stops...

there are two things that cause this clicking noise u hear, one and most common is the hazard flasher relay switch assmbly, they also say in a factory bulletin the turn signal switch on the steering column can cause this, any GM dealer should be able to order these parts for you.
here are the part numbers, they are avail from
AIRTEX / WELLS Part # 1S7579

OE PRO Part # SM557H
without auto headlamps

AIRTEX / WELLS Part # 1S7582 {#15251096, 22729563, SW5130}

Had service 4 wheel drive light now their is clicking noise from the dash we think relay but what one on tran or inside dash

Hi Steward,

It's unlikely a relay is producing your symptoms.

The on the fly 4WD in the Cherokee is engaged inside the front axle. If for some reason it doesn't fully engage, it produces a clicking sound until it either fully engages or disengages.

If that clicking you are hearing gets more rapid as you increase speed, slows down when you do, then that's what it is.

A vacuum leak is the likely problem, easy to fix, difficult to find.
I have a Cherokee. I had the same problem. Start checking vacuum lines that lead under the engine to an actuator attached to the front axle.

Good luck,

Clicking in steering column


Check the lower steering column universal joint coupling needle rollers !

Open the hood, and get someone to wiggle the steering wheel, and using a good torch, check the lower steering column joint, for any free play, or if you can hear or feel, the clicking, and check all the clamp bolts and nuts.

Good Luck!
A FixYa rating is appreciated ....Thank you !

2007 ford focus clicking noise in steering column

This clicking noise that you said does it do it when you turn? If so your problem lies in your CVJoints. Constant velocity joints are attached to the steering mechanism. Try an experiment first. Get the vehicle at about 15 mph and do a small donut (controlled) parking lot would be easier for this and safer. Then turn the opposite direction. If the clicking noise is on both directions then you might as well replace both inner and outer CV joints for the right and left side. It might be your rack and pinion as well. The joints fail first before your rack and pinion so check that first. You may want to see the fluid level on the rack and pinion to see if that was the problem. Check the cheapest thing first. Let me know Gabe.
