An Air-Cooled Fan, Too!
I've got an '03 Turbo S with the Monsoon AM/FM unit and it has developed a rather strange, rhythmic "pat-pat" sound but only on AM which I listen to the great majority of the time. It's got a certain "rhythmic" quality to it and also could be described as a somewhat muffled "ticking" sound. The sound can be quite annoying, but it's somewhat in the background and doesn't overpower the speech or music coming from the unit. It's been there for quite some time and is more noticeable at various times than at others. Also, at times the unit will inexplicably, suddenly go into "Safe Mode" and remain there for a while, but always comes out of it after a few hours of being turned off or overnight. Anybody else out there have this problem? What could be causing it?
