Is this a faulty sensor or something more sinister? Also, my car is under warranty till next month, will that take care of this?

Looks like a wheel speed sensor has gone bad. Wheel speed sensor is critical for the functioning of ABS and ESP. It's unlikely to be a wheel bearing issue. Wheel bearing failure will be accompanied by some sound from the wheels.

Has anyone thought of swapping Ventos front seat(s) with Jetta seats ? Jetta seats are just way comfortable than the seats in Vento. I don't know the head or tail of this project. Just had this thought since the beginning, but never let it grow because it's difficult to source a Jetta seat and it's also going to be very expensive.

But I just wanted to know if we can just bolt on a Jetta driver's seat in place of a Ventos driver seat on the existing mounting bracket ? Or does it involve a much complex work like making holes in the floor and stuff ?

I noticed something extremely strange on my 2016 Vento today. The indicator tick has vanished.
I checked, all 6 indicators are flashing as they should, but the tick you hear inside when they’re on has Just vanished.

Has anyone experienced this before? Do I have a rolls Royce upgrade or is this something I need to be pettie about?

My 2015 vento’s tick tick while using indicators also vanished away in 2018 end. Never bothered to get it checked. Indicators are working fine till date.

I also faced the same issue with both of my Honda Amaze. Along with indicator tick tick noise, seat belt warning beep also vanished.

The issue was traced to a small buzzer which was placed on the back side of the speedometer.

I did a simple DIY. Removed the speedometer, opened the buzzer, cleaned it well with IPA, fixed everything back and the issue was resolved.

That’s what I was planning on doing too. No way was I going to visit a service centre for this.

Wow that’s pretty cool, unfortunately I’m not a DIY person. Fortunately, however, the tick sound is back on its own! Hoping it stays that way!

Hey guys,

There's a strange rumbling/drumming sound I hear from the right rear of my Vento while driving. Sounds like a loose but heavy object tossing up and down in the boot area. I'm sure it isn't from inside the cabin, so I emptied the boot completely and drove the car, the noise was still present.

I checked for any loose objects in the cabin and the boot, but found nothing. Any idea what this could be? Could it be worn out shocks/springs? The car has done just 31,000 clicks.

How old is the car?

Check for any suspension rubber bushings which have cracked. Alternatively, it could be a bad wheel bearing if the sound gets louder with speed.

The car is just a little over 4 years old.
The sound doesn’t get louder with speed, it’s constant
Thank you! I’ll get it checked at a local garage ASAP
