Strange Noise Rover 25

#1 Post by straker85 » Sun May 16, 2021 3:16 pm

Hi Everyone,

I've got a Rover 25 GLI 05.

I was just topping up the tyres and noticed a loud clicking noise coming from behind the wheel.
It almost sounds like a shorting electrical connection? The engine was off.

On opening the bonnet it's very noisy and best guess i would say it's located near the black box with Injector written on it.

There's no pattern to it, it's completely random, but at it's worst maybe once a second.

Any ideas what it could be? Other than that the car has no issues.

Thanks

Without a video I’d be guessing the stepper motor resetting.

Thanks. I'll try and get a video uploaded at some point.

You were correct! I looked up how to reset it and touchwood it's stopped making the noise.
