It is a built in pre-heater. When it is colder, it probably clicks longer.

2002 ford escape just stoped running

Could be your electric fuel pump in gas tank. you can check it by turning the key on and take gas cap off and have someone to check to see if their is a noise saying the fuel pump is working. someone has to stand by where you put gas in your car and put their ear to the hole an listen when you turn key on, do not start the car just turn the key on and if they hear a noise like a pump running then your electric fuel pump is okay, but if don't hear a noise then your electric fuel pump is not working. it is hard to explain about the noise you will hear, but as long as they hear something when you turn key on and their ear is at the opening they will know what I am talking about. I've done 4 electric fuel pumps in gas tanks on different vehicles. good luck ! would like to know if you could hear the pump running when you turned the key on with the gas cap off.

I have a 2008 v-star custom 650, when i just turn on the key theirs a click noise jusr under the front side of the tank, what is that other then that it rund and rides great.

Pretty sure your bike has a fuel pump to assist getting fuel to carbs.....very typical to hear the pump click a few times to refill carbs prior to startup....once the carbs fill it stops till the carbs use some fuel......actual the fuel pump is clicking away as needed when the bike is just can no longer hear it over the engine noise.

Fuel pump does not turn off after turning key on and the relay 'chatters'.

Check your ignition switch for operating correctly, two screws hold it in, mounted under the steering column about an inch away from the turn signal switch. And assure that there are no shorts to wires going to fuel pumps.

My son's acer 5738 laptop has a rapid beeping noise when turned on and the keyboard is locked? Can you recommend something? thx

Rapid beeping sometimes indicates a stuck key on the keyboard. check all the keys to see if something is jammed, or if a certain key is not as responsive as the others.

I the keys are not stuck or jammed, and if you are brave enough, remove the bottom pannel and see if you are able to remove the ram. Turn the system on without any ram installed and see if the rapid beeping still occurs.

If the rapid beeping stops with the ram removed, you may need to purchase a replacement.

My 95 4 runner makes a chattering noise when under load but seems to smooth out after it gets to a higher rpm? does not make the noise all the time

Starter contacts if it wont turn over but you hear a click when turning ignition key...I am assuming the engine is not turning over as you have replaced the battery.
