Ford Ranger question.

Recommended Posts

Just lately when I start the vehicle I get 5 clicks from behind or near the glove box.

Then they return intermittently as I am driving. Some times not for half an hour , sometimes after 10 minutes.

Always 5 short clicks.

Any ideas please......There are no warning lights and the vehicle drives okay.

If you can't check wiring yourself get it checked could be something electrical.

Could be something nesting in the aircon filter department.

Are the electrical relays located in that area, or under the hood on the nearside......?

Had the same on my Everest a few months ago.

Went to Ford and explained the problem. The mechanic knew what it was immediately. Made appointment for next day and it was fixed within 2 hours.

A part was changed in behind the dash, up behind the glovebox area. I was still under warranty so was free. Hope it helps

Yes , it first starts when I turn the ignition before I start the engine.

Too late to take it in Friday , tel. them , closed Sat. Sun.

It is a 100 klm round trip to the nearest Ford dealer.

So I thought it might have been a quick fix.

Having said that , I went out this morning 15 - 20 klms. Only clicked on ignition turn and no other time .

Very confusing.

Ok last time (you don't need to post about it anymore). They (FORD) know the problem, so just take it to the dealer when you have time and get the part changed out. 

(PS. It is not a safety issue. Took me a few months to get the time to take it into the shop, so make the trip when you have a spare day).  Cheers.

Another answer could be...thank you for the information, just what I required and has helped a lot (but of course thats just me).
