Q: Buzzing noise in dash on 2009 Ford Taurus

When accelerating, I hear a buzzing noise in the dash (tachometer)area. After reaching 1500 to 2000 RPMs, the noise stops. The noise also stops when I take my foot off the accelerator, and the noise is not present when going downhill. It sounds like a bumble bee. I have 35,500 miles on the car and need this solved before 36,000. ???

Well - the honest best decision is to take it right into the dealership! They are obligated to solve this issue for you - on Ford's dime. Be sure to demonstrate the noise first hand with a technician, service consultant or manager. Then, make sure the problem is entirely resolved before taking your vehicle home. This way you will not run into warranty problems. Good luck and Happy Thanksgiving!
I have a 2013 ford explorer that has 10,000 miles on it that also makes the buzzing sound. I have it on video on my phone and the technician at ford still wants to give me a hard time. It makes the sound typically over 60 mph will make sound even with radio and a/c turned off. Sounds like a large bumble bee in the dash. Faster I go louder it gets, and doesn't do it all the time. Car literally at the shop now, service manager has told me they most likely won't be able to fix unless they can be in the passenger seat and actually hear the sound. I stated what is the difference from being in the front seat not able to see into the dash in comparison to the video I have. You can hear the vibration buzzing sound. I am now requesting the technician himself hear my video, we'll see how it goes. I also have something going on with transmission and have had my front passenger window motor replaced!! Not very impressed!!
