: Ticking noise from dashboard

05-12-2011, 03:04 PM
I have an 03 Allroad. There is an intermittent to constant ticking noise coming from the dash when the engine is running. It sounds like a geiger counter sitting on a lump of uranium. Oddly, it stops when the turn signal is engaged. Any thoughts?

Hi! Does it sound similar to the turn signal relay? Is it from the dash or from the relay panel?

The sound is not the same as when the turn signal is engaged (tick tock) It is a very rapid click/squeal that stops immediately when the turn signal is engaged. the sound seems loudest through the air vents in the middle of the dash.
