Hi, I don't have an answer; can you identify a specific area of the dash it's coming from? If not, it's time to .................... this back to the top!

It sound like its coming from the gauge area, maybe the column area?. It was hard pin point, but definitely on the drivers side. It's faint. I can only heat it with the Windows up and radio down

Me too. I suspect it may be my remote starter brain though. I bought the truck with it so.... Anyway, I haven't checked it out yet. Maybe you should look under the dash for any loose pieces floating around? Maybe just zip tied to a wire harness? Good luck

Looks like Im going to find out the hard way. I got to replace the evaporator so the dash has to come out anyway. I think I'm gonna do the heater core while I'm there too.

so i think i have found the source of my sound. my wiring issue led me to remove part of my dash and i found that the relay for my wipers is not securley placed. so a small piece of electrical tape and no more clicking

i have that same problem when i wash the car and some water fell under the hood cables, my interior light keeps turning on and off, maybe it could be an electrical problem. sorry for my poor english. y let the hood open so it can dry, and the problem was solved.
