Default ongoing clicking noise

Clicking noise coming from in or around the near side wheel arch. Clicking starts when engine is turned on and continues when engine is turned off. I have pulled out the IOD fuse which stops the clicking until fuse is replaced. I am wondering if it has something to do with the alarm, as the alarm is not sounding when activated. Has this happened to anyone else or can anyone offer some advice?

sounds like a breaker may have a short somewhere. start pulling the other fuses one by one until the clicking stops. That may zero in on the problem. Also check if everything is working properly.

Thanks Mike. I'll give it a go with the other fuses. I can stop the noise if I pull out the IOD fuse, but I believe this fuse can effect different things in the car so doesn't really narrow it down. After many hours on the internet I'm 99% sure the sound is coming from the alarm siren which is housed in the near side wheel arch. I can remove the siren to stop the noise but there has to be something that is causing the siren to make the clicking and stopping the alarm sounding when it has been activated. This is where I m stuck

Welcome to the forum
