When attempting to start the C4, a clicking comes from behind the radio area.

by John Riley
(Parma, Michigan)

Twice in the past year, on warm days, the car wouldn't start after being driven and sitting for fifteen minutes or so. A relay of some sort clicks behind the radio area. The dash and interior lights are bright. Radio works fine. After sitting for about one-half hour, the car starts right up. I suspected the anti theft system and tried locking and unlocking the doors with the key. No luck. If there is a relay to change behind the radio or info center, I'll pull the covers and take a look.

Thanks for any info on this.
