Clicking noise

Ok so I don't always hear it. Some days it will come on after I start my car and some days it's fine. It's louder underneath the steering wheel. When I got my car it didn't come with the keyless entry so I had the dealer put one in. I don't know if that would have anything to do with it. I'll try to post a video of it so you can hear what it sounds like.

Is the car throwing any check lights or codes? If so you could have it run at most local autoparts stores and if they cannot tell you what it is, they can give you the code. A quick call to your local dealer and they can tell you what the code is for.

Would have to hear the noise and have more details to further my guesses on the problem. lol. (not this biggest mechanical expert, but try to help anybody anyway I can)

Could it be your climate control fan?

I sometimes here a clicking as well. Though it seems to be coming from the passenger side fuse box. I hear it while braking or something. I'm pretty sure it seems to be coming from the blower motor. But can't be too sure, never investigated it and bothered to figure it out haha.

I'm interested to hear how it sounds, maybe it similar and we can finally get to the bottom of it

hah get this.. i was going to upload the video from my iphone but i had to restore it because it messed up (no joke) so whenever it does it AGAIN ill upload it. It almost sounds like a signal clicking sound and at first i thought it was because my seatbelt wasn't clicked but it still does it. like i said you'll know what im talking about when i can get a video up.

just a thought...
if there is a clicking during breaking could it possibly be something to do with the ABS?

Sounds like your turn signal warning audio (also used for the hazard lamps). In the G6, the audio is generated in the instrument cluster itself in response to instructions from the BCM. The cause could be tough to track down. So you had keyless entry or remote start installed? Either way, I'd have to wonder if that played a role.

yeah i had keyless entry. i don't know if they set it up right because you know when you lock the car and the horn beeps and there's the acknowledgement ding? (also when you turn auto lights off) well i have to lock the car with my door open to get the horn to beep when it locks. if i lock it with the remote it doesn't beep and there's no acknowledge ding. so i'm thinking that the keyless entry has something to do with the whole thing.

If the problem began right after the install of keyless entry then there is a high probability that caused it. Either way, you're at the mercy of a dealer with this because only they can see what the BCM is doing using their Tech 2.
