I've noticed that each time I turn the ignition key to the first position I hear a clicking sound coming from over my left shoulder. (It just does it once.) Probably it is some sort of "switch" located under the rear seat behind the drivers seat. Does anyone know what that might be? I'm just curious.

Thanks,

HC

There are relay modules located under the rear seat. A few of them should click when the car is "on" to enable certain functions on the car, like ignition, fuel, climate control, etc.

The only 2 things that are audible to me on startup are the fuel pump and the antenna. AA is right about there being relays under the rear seat, but I've never heard any of them (possibly because my car is pretty loud).

I've never heard any of my relays and mine is bone stock. All I can hear is the fuel pump.

I can hear my heated seat relay and my level control relay (when it was hooked up) . I suppose it's possible to hear the fuel pump relay.

Hey everyone. Thanks for the input. I guess it's either the fuel pump or the level relay. I know what the antenna sounds like and that doesn't go up until I turn on the radio. I don't know if the level is working or not. I don't know what to look for to tell. The rear shocks are new and the ride is quite stiff.

Thanks.
