We have been having a rhythmic clicking sound that almost sounds like a small washing machine that occurs when we turn the van off. It sounds like it is coming from the dash. The sound shuts off after about two minutes and only occurs when the vehicle is off. If you open a door, the sound starts up again. Otherwise, the vehicle has been running fine. Has anyone else experienced this? 2018 Hybrid 10,000 miles. All recalls and RRT’s completed with no issues found.

Hi- according to the owners manual the clicking noise is normal. I attached a photo of the section where it mentions that. Hopefully that’s the clicking noise that you are experiencing. My car is still the dealer but when I get it back I’ll see if I hear the noise also.

Thank you for the link. Unfortunately, our clicking occurs when the vehicle is in the OFF position, and the manual states the normal clicking occurs in the ON position. I wish it was the same clicking!

Possibly an air flow shutter in one of the air vents that is malfunctioning?
I've had a sound when the car is on a few times that I suspect might be this. It goes away when the climate control is turned off. It has yet to last more than 10-15 seconds so far, no point bringing it to the dealer until it lasts long enough for them to reproduce it.

Hi Jmm11 and ogremustcrush,
I understand how this might be concerning. If you are able to replicate this concern and would like to have your dealers look into this, you can also send us a private message where we can provide our extra assistance while your vehicles are being serviced.

I do have the same issue now on my 2018 Pacifica... have you found the issue behind this noise?

My 2018 PHLimited does the same thing. I turn off power to van and clicking/tapping noise begins. It goes on for approximately two minutes if I sit and listen. When I open door, it begins making noise again and continues to make noise for approximately five minutes.

Also, my right side rear slide door will not lock. Dealer repaired with new part stating it was electrical issue...it worked when I picked up van from dealer, but not the next day or thereafter.

If your van is a hybrid you will notice that there are things that happen , and you’ll hear when you shut it off . There is also things that happen in the instrument panel that happen when you shut car off as well . If you plug in your van open the door and sit in the seat and wait for the dashboard cluster , top of the ip charging status to begin charging and listen what happens from the underside of the floor pan ..

We had exactly the same clicking. As soon as you turned the vehicle off, or before "starting it" once unlocked. There was a solution on this forum - something to do with the air recirculation flap not coming to rest in the right position and "fluttering" back and forth. We printed the info from this forum and took it to our dealer and they fixed it, its not been a problem since... It was all the information in the thread above that m0ebius604 linked. Now, if we could get the touchscreen to remain functional for more than a few days before it stops responding to touch, we would be there.....
