Weird Ticking Noise?

so just today I went in my car to clean it and noticed this weird ticking noise, seems like it's coming from the fuse box inside the car, what is this?

If it's coming from the fuse box, might be a relay.

probably the rap relay, it keeps your car alive for 20 seconds or so after you open a door and keys are out of the ignition.

the "ticking" sound is the pole being magnetized and switching from 87a-87 on the 30 (bosch type relay). You can test relays by energizing them and not only hearing it, but putting a finger on top to feel it engage the throw.
