#3159 of 3856 2007 Toyota Corolla Air Conditioner Noise
Sep 09, 2008 (6:59 am)
For the past few days, my A/C has been making a "ticking" noise whenever it is turned on. At first, I thought it was something in my glove compartment, because the noise seems to be coming from my dashboard. It only makes this noise whenever the A/C is turned on. Does my air conditioning filter need to be replaced? I think the fans might be clogged with dirt or something. It almost sounds like something is caught in there. I only have 22,000 miles on my car so I really hope nothing is broken. Thanks.

Any suggestions ??
Take it to the dealer and let them diagnose and fix the problem. If it's under 36,000 miles the repair should be under warranty.

Thanks all for the updates. I did take it to the dealer - they said it was a known problem with the Corolla - the ECU Computer was faulty .
They replaced the same with a new one, since it was under warranty free of cost .
The dealer mentioned she received 3 Corolla's yesterday with the same problem .

Hmmm... seems like a recall might be in order.

First off, how many total miles are on your car? If you are over 100K, to solve the acceleration problem you probably need...
A) Timing Belt replacement - VERY important, a little expensive but usually needed every 90K-100K miles.
B) Front Axle replacement- it could be popping in and out of your transmission causing the noise and slipping.
C) New Transmission -** Get more than 2 opinons before you replace your transmission - most transmission mechanics are LIARS.

1998 and newer Corollas do not have timing belts - they have chains, no maintenance required.

I have a 02 corolla ce and I noticed that the daytime running lights will not come on.
My headlights work just fine including parks and they still come on by themselves.
I checked the fuse and relay under the hood and they are fine. What else could I check that could be causing the problem?

Thats one of the greatest advancements on the Corolla. Does Toyota still use timing belts on any of it's products?

Few, if any, and if they still do, they won't soon, because all of their new engines use chains.

My 2006 Corolla with 52,000 has a computer glitch. A part in the computer will not read the chip in the key all of a sudden-they are not comaptible now. The car starts then dies within 5 seconds. The dealer has to order a part today and install it tomorrow or Wednesday. Is this covered by the Drivetrain warranty-5 years or 60,000 miles or where do these computer issues fall under? Is this a common issue, should there be a recall?
