    Default strange clicking noise from the dash

    Got this strange clicking noise which happens radomly from the passenger side of the dashboard. Even when i take the ignition out of the car i can even hear the ticking noise for a a few seconds and then it goes away (when it happens). The noise seems random and doesn't come on all the time unless i can't hear it when i'm driving, but my wife does when she is with me. I first thought it might be the cd70 stereo, but when i took the stereo out (disconnected), the noise still occurred when the keys were out of the ignition. I have the traffic master module installed - could it be this causing the noise? Anyone know what it could be. Only had the Signum for a few weeks and its due in the garage soon for power issues. So if its not normal i need it looked at.

    Could be the servo motor for the air circulation.

    The clicking noise occurred on a car i went to view. It happened when ever you turned on the ignition. I Bought the car anyway and made sure Vx changed the servo motor.

    Problem solved

    Put the hot/cold heater knob half way!, you should not get the noise, then turn it to hot or cold all the way, it should then click!, this will be the motor as in the link below. a bit fiddly to do but fairly easy.
