FUSE BOX CLICKING SOUND
What to Do For a Clicking Noise in a Fuse Box | It Still Runs
Clicking noise in your car’s fuse box is caused by a relay that is turning on and off rapidly can be caused by a computer failure, resistance in the ground wire for the control side of the relay or high resistance in the power supply to the control side of the relay. To find out the source of the problem, you’ll need to run some quick tests using a multimeter.
Why would my "fuse box" be clicking? - Car Forums and
Sep 27, 2008When I turned it off it started clicking and my door thingy was dinging. My key was NOT in the switch. My husband pulled relay #13 out of the fuse box under the dash. Everything stopped then. It was burnt. we bought a new one but when we put it in it started clicking as well. With it dark and raining we couldn't fool with it very long.
clicking noise in the fusebox? | Yahoo Answers
answerso››Maintenance & Repairs›NextOct 22, 2009A clicking noise near a fuse box is usually one of three things. One cause is a main wire getting close enough to a ground (like the car frame) to spark (called arcing). Another cause is where a fuse inserted in a spot on the fuse panel is not a fuse, but a circuit breaker. A circuit breaker is like a fuse in that it stops wires from overheating.Status: OpenA fuse that is not completely inserted can cause a spark. This spark can cause a clicking sound, if enough current is applied. This is probably not the cause, however.
A clicking noise near a fuse box is usually one of three things.
One cause is a main wire getting close enough to a ground (like the car frame) to spark (called arcing).
Another cause is where a fuse inserted in a spot on the fuse panel is not a fuse, but a circuit breaker. A circuit breaker is like a fuse in that it stops wires from overheating. The advantage of a circuit breaker is once it cools, it can be reused. This can take a few seconds, or a few minutes. Some do not automatically reset, but have a button that you can press to reset it.
The usual cause is actually not a fuse, but a relay. This is a unit that is inserted in a socket on or near the fuse panel. It will make a click whenever power is applied or removed. When there is a problem with your wiring, this can cause rapid clicking. It will sound more like a buzz.
The first step is to make sure all your fuses are properly inserted in their sockets. If the noise doesn't go away, try to determine the exact source of the noise.
Going to your mechanic with such information will greatly narrow down the possibilities of what it could be.Best answer · 0I do not know what a "51reg corsa" IS, but I do know about cars and car batteries. Is it clicking all the time, before you turn the key? Or is it only when you turn the key to the START position? If it is doing it all the time and there is nothing turned ON, then you have a serious electrical problem and it is time to involve an expert, so call your mechanic. If it is only clicking when you turn the key to the START position, then it is a low voltage condition of the battery, which is either that the battery is discharged OR you have corroded battery connections. The click comes from the starter solenoid as it engages, which connects the starter to the battery which is too weak or the voltage is too low to turn the starter motor, but the motor being connected DOES drag the voltage further down, which causes the relay to drop out. When the relay drops out, the battery voltage recovers somewhat and because you still have the key in the START position, the solenoid engages again and the process repeats, causing repeated clicking as long as you hold the key and the battery voltage is high enough to engage the solenoid. Eventually, the battery terminal voltage will not recover enough to engage the solenoid and the clicking will stop. It should be safe to charge. Just be sure you do the charge in a well ventilated area. The older the battery gets, the more it will tend to evolve off H2 and O2 gasses as it charges, unless you use a "smart" charger which reduces the charge current when the battery is done charging. Most chargers maintain the charge current and overcharge the battery and it is overcharging which causes the water to disassociate into O2 and H2 gasses. If you have a regular battery, NOT a "maintenance free" type, check the fluid level in each cell and bring the level up if necessary with distilled water.1Peugeot 106 Fuse Box0The car just was a peugeot 106 1.1 1997?

fuse box makes clicking sound and car wont start? | Yahoo
answerso››Maintenance & Repairs›NextJan 13, 2011sometimes when i crank my car it wont start, and the fuse box on the drivers side floor panel makes a clicking sound and the car will seem to shut down and loose power as though the battery is disconnected. after several trys it will not do anything at all then i end up disconnecting the battery and hooking it back up then the car comes back to life and will start. im wondering is it theFollowers: 1Status: OpenYour scalding terminal is the problem. you have a bad connection there, causing a large voltage drop when you try to start the car. The current across this connection is what causes it to heat up
Usually you will hear sizzling indicating an arc is occurring rapidly draining your battery, arcing also destroys the connection further increasing voltage dropped there. Th clicking noise is a relay failing to pick due to low voltage in electrical system.Best answer · 0If the negative terminal is hot after a lot of cranking, that might be possible, although more typically it's the positive terminal that gets hot.
If the negative terminal is hot when you haven't been cranking the starter, then something strange is happening. It could be an internal short in the battery, but I would expect that to make a total exit pretty quick and leave you with nothing.
Assuming it is not the battery, did you add some high powered stereo equipment? The clicking noise you are hearing sounds like a relay kicking in and out. I don't know Mini's but most cars have relays for lights and other high draw circuits. So it sounds like a high draw circuit is kicking in. The fuel pump is one of those types of circuits and you will generally hear it kick in all of the time when you first turn the key on. If you just turn the key on and hear it and then the negative cable on the battery gets hot, I'd vote for a short in either the fuel pump, starter or headlight circuit.
The forum link below is a discussion about the ground. Bottom line is it's good from the factory. Others have mentioned that the positive cable nut is known for coming loose. You should double check that, since it would cause issues.

Good luck1That is almost certainly a bad battery. Trucks need pretty heavy jumper cables to start them when the battery is bad; ordinary passenger car jumper cables will get charge into a good battery but don't help much in jumping a truck with a bad battery. If they cost less than $80, forget about it. In the same way, if the car used as a jump has a 4 cylinder engine.. good for charging, not for starting.0Your car is in security mode turn your factory key in the driver's door left right left to difuse the security if you don't have a factory key remove the key slot and look for the number to order a new one there's a couple more methods like restarting the computer by taking off the battery cables for about 5 minutes then reclamp and the car should start y'all are lucky just got a jeep for the mountains and I have to hot wire it to start took me a whole day to resolve this issue and I now I'm just ordering a key0Take your car to a mechanic and have them do a diagnostic on it. It could be several different things like a loose wire, blown fuse, the computer in the car, etc.0Bring it to a mechanic, you have a grounding problem and you may cause further damage to the electrical components by fire or electrical shorts or even to yourself if you start messing with it. If you have towing service for free take advantage of it or have it towed to a local shop that will tow it in for free.0
