Until the Ford Shaker unit.

My 09 pony does that all the time, pretty sure its normal. Probably just a pump of some kind winding down (oil, coolant, gas, etc)

Pretty sure its the cluster, I notice as the fuel and temp gauge are winding down that's when I notice the noise.

Yup I noticed the louder noise was linked to the A/C fan(s) being on, but it could also be from the stepper motors behind the gauges? Either way, I've had it since I bought the car and have yet to see any adverse effects, so I'll just roll with it.

Still a very weird noise to hear in a car though.

My 2006 Pony Package has had the same noise since new and it definitely come from the cluster area and not the radio. Besides I had a Shaker 500 and replaced it with a NAV and the noise is still there and is exactly the same.
