Re: Ticking sound while idle

I have a single click that happens roughly every ten seconds. It's heard with the windows down, especially in the underground parking lot. Fairly loud and very annoying!
Does it in drive/reverse/idle.
Must be what RobE was talking about.

Re: Ticking sound while idle

Don't mean to revive an old thread, but I have the exact same issue with my 2017 with only 600 miles on it. Just started noticing the noise yesterday when starting the car with the windows down and in the garage. Did anyone ever figure out if this is really supposed to be normal? It never stops whether driving or just idling and the noise is definitely coming from under the car. No correlation with being on the gas pedal. Just as previously stated, it's the same noise that you hear when you cut the engine when parking.

Re: Ticking sound while idle

yep.. Mine is/was doing the same thing for the limited time the car was in my possession. Thought it was related to the other issues I was having, but after reading this thread seems that it's not and possibly normal. Sounds like exhaust cooling off after a long period of driving. Vehicle is 2017 GC Summit. Wonder if this is specific to only the QuadraDrive II xfer case?

Pretty obnoxious if this is in fact normal. I was parked next to an X5 that was idling yesterday and it was completely silent. I did not notice this on my 2011 Overland Pentastar either. The 2017 is a Hemi.

Re: Ticking sound while idle

I have a 5.7 and the ticking started at about 75-79000 miles, runs fine just the loud ticking on startup. So what is the fix ?

Re: Ticking sound while idle

Car is at the dealer today and the tech says it's the transfer case and totally normal and "they all do it". I have a hard time believing this.

Re: Ticking sound while idle

I've heard it too. 2017 trailhawk hearing it since new. I've come to learn that unless it turns into something worse, it's not worth the worry.

Also don't make a habit of checking the problems threads if u want to sleep at night, lol.
