i just bought my 2015 C-Max Energi last week and i have noticed some sounds... when i turn the car on it sounds like a thump coming from the back of the vehicle with some other type noises. When i turn off the car i hear a click/thump about 2 seconds after i turn the car off also coming from the back of the vehicle and i can not figure it out.... 

 

an other question is when i accelerate i hear a one click and the same thing when i slow down... is this normal?

Welcome to the Forum!

 

I did some tests and did hear a brief sound right (Could be the thump or a click sound) after start up coming from the rear. I believe the sound occurs when the HVB relay engages to supply power. There may also be a similar noise at shutdown the the HVB is disconnected but I did not hear that one. Other noises coming from the rear may have something to do with the fuel vacuum pressure system. I do think these noises are considered normal.

 

I don't hear any clicking on acceleration or slowing down but that could be that I just can't hear it due to hearing loss that I have or that over time I've tuned it out in my mind. I assume the acceleration noise is coming from the front?

 

Tom
