    Well, WTH ? New noise, any guesses ?



    Here is a youtube video of my partner "Thor" and a new noise from our 2015 500e.

    Just started today. When in park only, press brake pedal, and sounds like marbles rumbling.

    Not the standard brake booster humming, but something that cant possible be good.

    Please watch the very short video if you think you may be able to help.


    In gear, no issues, driving regen works fine, normal brake booster prime noise when on and running.

    Bad sound will only happen with key out, in park, and pressing brake pedal.

    Thanks for any help/suggestions.

    Well, 50 folks who read the thread, apparently have never heard the sound before. Thats slightly concerning...

    I did a reset per the sticky, and all appears normal testing last night and driving today, so hope it was just a computer fart.

    For anyone who may read this or consider a reset for an issue in the future, be aware that you will loose all your settings, charge schedules, time/date, and bluetooth connect. Oddly, all my radio presets remained, so the stereo must have its own capacitor to maintain memory.

    Will update if problem comes back.

    Hopefully the reset solves every problem. I applied the brakes with the key and key out, but could not reproduce what's in the video. I could hear progressive clicking sound as more pressure is applied to the pedal, but nothing as loud as presented in the video. You might be the first to experience this issue.

    I bought a 10mm wrench on Amazon for a couple bucks to keep in the glove box permanently since there are countless examples of folks NOT getting stranded by performing a battery reset!

    Crossing fingers this resolved whatever issue you were having!

    Good advise. Will put a 10mm in tomorrow.

    Problem has not reoccured. However, Blue and me now asks if I want to sync phonebook every time I get in....

    Have hated the bluetooth phone in the fiat since day one. Simply gonna delete the pairing and be done with it.


    On another note, bird strike yesterday in the chopper took out one of my 3 main blades. Cant be repaired, needs replacing at 19k bucks. Safely put down in a farmers field, though that farmer wasnt real pleased to have to change his overalls as I dropped out 30 yards in front of his harvester....

    Maybe next week will be better...

    Glad you managed to set it down ok. I have no idea what that noise would have been.
