well, not in but behind....i've had this intermittent tick-tock coming from behind the glove box. no pattern to when it's on or off. and it isn't necessary for the engine to be running or the even the key turned to a pre-ignition position. and it has nothing to do with the turn signal indicators - these have there own practically inaudible sound. so i pulled the glove box and found a flat black plastic box with a gazillion wires going into it and a black square plug along the edge. pulled the plug and the tick-tock went away. and the car still runs. turns out it's the car alarm that doesn't work anyway, but why would it make that sound?
