Whirring noise, aaagh!
Well after a staggeringly long period of behaving itself my 2lt GTV has finally decided to play up!
Since day one when I put the key in the ignition and turned it position one, all warning lights on the dash would come on and a whirring sound followed by a single click could be heard. I would then turn the key to position two and the engine would start, perfect.
As of yesterday when I turn the key to position one all lights come on as before but the whirring noise now repeats continuously like this.... whirrrrrrrr click click whirrrrrrr click click whirrrrr click click (now double clicking). It does not stop and continues even once the engine has been started. It only stops when the ignition is completely turned off.
The sound is coming from the passenger foot well and sounds like a relay or something being primed or maybe the ECU itself. There is no water ingress or leaking heater matrix problems.
So, can anyone out there shed some light on this and put me out of my misery please.
