Dashboard noise

Hi all,

Got another gremlin to report.

After switching off the ignition I hear a strange ticking/bubbling noise from behind the dashboard for about 30 seconds or so. Its not a regular ticking but does almost forms an audible pattern.

I've searched this on the net and found a Technical Bulletin No. JTB00066 of May 2010 which seems to describe the symptoms exactly but this bulletin refers to a problem with the actuators for the CC system when in use. The difference in my situation is it happens when the ignition is off when I presume the power to the actuators would be off. Any ideas?

Hi Dennis,

 

This is a common occurrence in the S Type, and is something to do with the climate control when you switch off the engine.  I am not an engineer, but I am guessing that something is resetting itself.

 

Regards,

I think all climate control systems must be similar and it is just the location of the mechanical bits in the s type that lets you hear it.

 

I had a Rover with all the bells and whistles and the Climate Control system was located near the  CC radiator and you could hear it when you opened the bonnet when you had just stopped.

Thanks guys (again). Andy, I did do a similar search to what you suggest but the only references were to ignition on situations rather than off. Sooooo glad others have encountered this and it sounds as if its normal so now I feel better and wont worry about it.

Thanks again everyone
