Hi,
I have just joined. Hopefully someone can help me on this bizarre noise.

I have an 05' Elise that upon accelerating I hear a sound coming from below the floor board or up under the dash. It sounds like a bunch of sparks going off. When I let up off the accelerator it stops. No CELs, no smells and runs strong.

What the heck could it be?

Maybe have a passenger record video slowly panning one side to the other up under the dash and see if the audio can pinpoint where the sound is coming from. I had to do similar in engine compartment.

I did. It appears to be a general area.
I may have to take it to my Lotus Dealer. I’m just trying to avoid the trip. Thanks so much!

Maybe post your video for others to hear to see if they've encountered the same or could point you in the right direction.

Check the front undertray, well, really it never hurts to check all of them, too. I just walk around the car tapping the bottom hard with my knuckle. It makes a thunk when they are all tight, but a clear rattle when it is slightly loose.
