This evening I was driving around 65mph with the cruise control engaged. There was a very quick electric click click click sound which sounded like it was coming from the steering column. It sounded like a relay clicking on and off very rapidly then would stop. It happened a few times during the drive sometimes it clicked a few times and once it clicked nonstop for about five Seconds.
The cruise control never disengaged and it didn’t seem to affect anything else. The lights were on and they dimmed slightly during every click.

It also sounded like When I depress the brake and push the button on the shifter. There’s a click in the steering column that unlocks the steering wheel.

Is there a relay in the column that could cause this? Anybody have any other ideas? Search hasn’t helped me.

Thanks.

Found a video someone posted in the past. They recommended checking grounds so that’s what I’ll try.
