#31 of 88 Re: 2005 ford expedition ticking noise in rear panel [peanut9]
Feb 13, 2008 (8:41 pm)
Ok. Here it is...... A friend had asked around about my problem and a couple of places said they have never heard the noise before. I then took it Tire World because they had changed my front brakes in the previous week of the oncoming chirping. They said to take it to an exhaust place. So, I did. They told me that it was a broken bolt in my exhaust manifold and it could cost me between 250 - 500 to fix because there maybe other problems and the seal would also have to be replaced. By the way, I am a female and began to think I was being taken advantage of. So, I told this to a friend who works at Ford. He said that he would take a look. Well, there was a broken bolt. But the manifold was also warped, and other bolts had broke. They had a lot of corrosion. Well, after all that was fixed. It still makes the noise. He said it was a belt for some kind of part that would cost 500. I stopped listening to details when he said that it will be okay if I can withstand the noise factor. He checked over everything else and things looked great. So, to make my long dragged out story end and come to your answer. Its not fixed. Sorry for the details. Good luck with yours. Let me know what happens.

I never got it fixed but figured out the problem..for whatever reason mine stopped doing it.....but the problem is the motor switch or door for the rear AC/Heat gets stuck and keeps trying to complete the transition....i guess mine became unstuck when we switched our rear AC from heat back to AC....since that time it stopped ticking. The noise was coming from the rear passenger side wall panel..kind of between the second and third row seats....mine is under warranty so i will take it in eventually to get it fixed.
#33 of 88 time bomb tick in rear right panel
Mar 02, 2008 (11:24 am)
I too just started having this loud "tick tick tick" sound in my 03 expedition. It started when I turned on my rear air. When I turned off the air the ticking stopped. I doesn't make the sound if I leave off the rear air but keep the front air on. Now to add to the complication, This morning my husband went out to use my expedition and my battery was dead. We jump started it and as soon as it started, the ticking from the rear panel started. I checked my air controls and they were all off!! So what is the deal with that? Could whatever that is have drained my battery and why would it still be ticking if the air was off?
Help, I am not under warranty and don't want ot fix something expensive.

I had this happen twice in my 03 Expedition. I was still under (extended) warranty and had it fixed both times. I think there is a switch or something inside the plastic wall that can be damaged if bumped. What I noticed when it happened the second time is - that it happened after loading a bunch of stuff in the back and a table that fits snug across the floor of the back - PRESSED firmly against the side wall and the clicking started again.
I think something just inside the wall can be easily damaged. But I'm not sure.
Now that I am out of (extended) Warranty - I will pull it apart next time to check it out.
#35 of 88 Expedition noise
Oct 01, 2008 (9:08 am)
My '99 Expedition 5.4 has developed a noise recently. Only when accelerating hard, up hill or towing. It sounds like classical u-joint noise, but the joints seem tight. Does this vehicle have the classic problem like the Explorer of wear in the output bearing or bushing of the transfer case?

My truck has an annoying noise at the dash that won't go away. It happens randomly, after I hit a bump or on a rough road, I have to hold the top of my dash for the noise to stop. I've visited the dealershi several times and they all think I''m crazy. Please help...

#38 of 88 clunk when starting to back up
Oct 14, 2008 (10:58 am)
Recently my 2003 Expedition began to make a single clunk sound when starting to back up. It seems to be worse when the wheel is turned. Any ideas what this might be?
#39 of 88 2005 Ford Expedition?
Oct 20, 2008 (9:49 pm)
I am posting for my sister. She recently was diagnosed with having a Ford Expedition with a loose timing belt and bad bearings. Does this sound legit. I'm sure it is. Probably never been serviced and a lot of city miles. What is she looking at as far as cost and what would you rate the difficulty of doing the job yourself. Never done one. Thanks.
#40 of 88 high pitch noise from center of dash
Dec 04, 2008 (6:32 am)
My '03 makes an occasional intense high pitch noise which lasts 15 seconds +/- and does not change if you fiddle with the fan switch. The noise happens while driving at steady Interstate speeds, radio off, and on a recent trip, after the first few hours, it did not reoccur. It can also happen at slower speeds. When it does happen, the pitch is steady and always the same. It does rapidly taper up, holds for awhile, then rapidly tapers off.
Is there anything else under the dashboard other than a heater fan motor which could make such a noise?
