Every time I unlock my doors and get into my vehicle there is a fairly loud taping sound emanating from my dash originating from the radio. Once I start the engine and put the car in drive it lasts about 30 to 45 seconds then stops. Has anyone ever seen this situation. Does anybody know how to correct it ? Thanks

Hi Jerry,

Thank you for waiting.

May I know the exact model of your vehicle? Can you verfiy the issue further if the radio is doing the noise or is it somewhere inside the dashboard. 

You can send me a reply by entering your message in the box at the top then hit the send response button to send.



The tapping is not coming from the radio itself but it seems to be coming from that area behind the fire wall and the engine compartment. It is activated by opening the doors or trunk. my 

vehicle is a 2013 Chevy Impala.

When you say tapping noise is it same thing as clicking noise?
