The other day driving to work I noticed that there is alot of clicking coming from the fuse box inside the car. Is this normal? If so what is the clicking? It happens at cruising speed on the freeway. It seems to happen when I'm not into the throtle much, like in between no throtle and very little. Sounds like relays clicking.

One of the relays in the engine fuse box is a fuel cut relay, but I really doubt you'd hear it from inside the car.

I had the clicking noise when the intermittent wipper relay failed. Can't recall what else is in the box but perhaps one of the relays is going bad. I just removed mine since the intermittent feature isn't one that I use that often. Have fun, Rick

I would hate to take the car in to find out it is someting clicking in the door or something.

Would I only hear the wiper relay when the wipers are on?

Not necessarily.

And AFAI remember Rick Reece's clicking relay was under the hood. Which could sound like from under the dash.

Without an ETM to identify which, and the ability to stick your head under the dash and specifically locate the noise I'm out of ideas.
:? :idea:

HTH! :)

John is right in that my relay was under the hood but I could hear it from inside the car. Of course it is louder if you check under the hood. Have fun, RIck
