Hi folks,

Im getting an unusual buzzing noise coming from behind the dash, the location is basicly just below the instrument cluster, theres a little vent which i believe is for the climate control but it seems as if the buzzing is coming from around that area.

Its a 53 Plate Zetec-S TDCI Facelift.

It only happens when i put the key to position II or start the vehicle, so its something going on. I dont want to start ripping things out without knowing what im going to be looking for etc. Its not under warrenty unfortunatly (ford) but does have sales warranty from where i got it (only had it 4 days!) Its going into the garage today for an investigation but i want to have a good idea myself incase the feed me with bullpoop!

Thanks!

James

I think the climate sensor has a small fan to circulate the air to get a good reading....... my guess is a noisy fan.

if you turn the key to position 2 and dont start the car does the noise stop after 10 - 15 seconds , if it does then my 51 plate does exactly the same :L

Paul,

No mate, it doesnt stop, it continues for aslong as the car is running/ign on.

The sensor fan does sound logical, i wasnt aware there was a sensor fan but im getting the car looked at tomorrow so ill let them know what u guys have told me.

Its not 'ruining' the car like, its just annoying sound lol! :D

Thanks alot folks, mucho thanko!
