Clicking sound when turning key?
I want to start out by saying I don't know much about cars.
I just bought a 2008 Hyundai Elantra. Today I noticed that when I turn the key into the
last position before starting (when the air/heat and radio work, but the engine isn't
started), I hear a clicking sound coming from the front of the car. The clicks start as
soon as I put the key into that position. After about 5-6 quick clicks in 2-5 seconds, it
stops. The clicking is the same every time. It sounds exactly like when you're
igniting a gas stove.
Just to be clear, the car starts fine. There is no clicking when I'm turning the key far
enough for the engine to turn over. It's only when I put it in the last position for
Is this normal? I never noticed it with my other car.
Electric fuel pump. Get worried if it doesn't do it.
Thanks for the points.
