Ticking from starter motor?

Postby krayzie on Sun, 13 Aug 2017 4:24 +0000

Hi guys

I'm getting a ticking sound from what I think is the starter motor when I turn off the car or leave the car in the "on" position

Car starts fine... is this normal?

I've taken a video of the sound here

Dude thats your turbo. The stepper motor makes that noise as it runs a cycle when ya turn the key on. Does the same thing when ya shut it down.

Sure is man, if ya look at it thru the wheel arch and get someone to turn the key on ya should see the actuator arm moving.

Mine doesn't make that sound. Sounds like your picking up Morse code.
