Clicking noise from firewall
We just returned a few hours ago from a camping trip with our trailer to Mammoth Lakes. After unloading the trailer at home, we went to put it back in storage. When I started the Armada, we heard a clicking noise coming from the firewall area, perhaps behind the dash board. The clicking went for about 10 seconds, then quit. I shut off the engine, restarted, and it repeated. I looked under the hood and couldn't see anything strange. But, every time we start the truck, the clicking noise occurs. It clicks exactly 22 times, starting about 2 seconds after the engine starts. All of the vent controls work, so I don't think it is one one of the vent actuators inside the dash. Any ideas out there?
