I have a 2008 Altima SL. I hear a sound like a telephone on vibrate coming from the steering column. It occurs randomly--no specific occasions.
The sound may occur when I first turn on the car in the morning, as I am driving, when I
come to a stop--no specific pattern. The sound lasts a second or two.
Sounds like a exhaust heat shield - they will vibrate when they when it rusts off a retaining bolt. Should be able to make it do it by slowing increasing engine speed in Park or neutral and it will hit a harmonic and start to hum/ rattle . Good Luck
It's Maxwell Smart! he now has a Steering Wheel phone! LOL
