Buzzing

Recommended Posts

Ok, im not quite sure if anybody else has this problem, but if i dont have anymusic on and im just driving, and i floor it, i hear an annoying buzzing sound comming from inside the dash area. It is seems like its comming from about the center of the dash maybe a little bit towards the passenger side,and im guess its like the AC fan or something.

Anybody know if theres a way to make this stop? Anything i can do?

If anybody needs to hear what it is, i can make a vid if it helps out. Thanks

is it something like;

1. electrical whining sound? - short circuited speaker or RCA cable wiring/grounding

2. scrapping sound? with a/c on? - blower fan (the hamster wheel) mounting

3. buzzing sound? pssss.... - vacuum hose connected to the boost meter leaking

4. high pitch whining from engine bay? - turbine compressor wheel faulty

5. intermittent rattling? - upper dashboard bracket chipping/ broken..

Only when you floor it? That would put stress on the upper torque bushings. Maybe check the upper torque bushings for wear, including the firewall side.

yea its only when i floor it, other than its quiet,i could go check the torque bushing ive been meaning to replace it cause i heard that can help with smoother shifting under hard acceleration..and the fact that it probably needs to be, what should i look for exactly?

i went out there just now and looked at it..there is some wear on the bushing the corners of the bracket itself have like cut into the bushing so..im gonna replace that..but..looking at the fire wall i think it maybe the firewall itsself, its not securely fastened on there maybe have came loose a lil but if you tap on it, it hit against the other side of it..so..vibrations probably make it go back forth and vibrate and buz on the backside of it, any way to fix this? i noticed it looked like some sort of scew or bolt or something is missing on the fire wall and it could be the problem.

This isnt really a major deal, its just a big annoyance when i wanna show a new person my car and i accelerate and that buzzing comes in, its a little embarassing

I had this anoying buzzing (rattle?) sound coming from what I though was the dash...terrible trouble trying to pin it down. Had my son ride with me and we finally found it. It ended up being the plastic housing around the reading light/rear view mirror. Took it loose, put electrician's tape on the sunroof motor and rubber washers around the screws holding the housing in place and the buzzing sound is gone. Strange, but I never thought to look up that high and it sure sounded like it was coming from the dash. If you drive down the road and the buzzing starts, try holding up on the housing I mentioned and see if the buzzing goes away. The buzzing in my case was vibrations on the housing against the components underneath it.
