It's a 1996 Seville SLS with 134,000 miles.
When I start the car up, I hear a very loud blower sound that stays on for quite a while. That's without the heat/ac/fan or anything at all on. Also, I hear a "ticking" sound. The best way to describe it is that it sounds just like you were sticking a plastic straw into a circular fan. This seems to be coming from my center console/shifter area, under the cup holder somewhere. I need to pull it apart one of these nights. Nothing seems affected, but can anyone guess what these two problems might be??? :banghead:

I had a similar noise and realised it was the rear seat blower control that is on the center console. Seems rather dumb I know but it can be switched on unintentionally by a rear seat passenger.
If you are aware of the blower switch location it is very easy for someone to bump it ....yes unintentionally ....when vacating the car.
