Electrical Clicking (Acceleration and Decelleration)

Adding to the growing list of issues experienced with my 2017 Pro4X is what sounds to me like an electrical relay clicking.

The clicking occurs at about 15MPH when accelerating from a stop. When decelerating it happens again at about 2-3MPH. I describe it as a relay because it is the exact same sound you hear when turning the steering wheel heater on or off. To me it sounds like the sound is coming from the passenger side of the dash. I first noticed the issue yesterday in stop and go traffic. I've restarted the truck several times, and even let it sit over night but the issue remains unchanged.

Has anyone experience a similar issue? I'm trying to gather information and other owners experiences prior to going to the dealer so that I can hopefully avoid multiple trips for warranty work (As has been the case for every other issue with this Truck).

Does it go away if you turn the radio up?

I prefer not using remote start or drive-thrus, both hurt your MPG's a lot & you shouldn't let your vehicle idle more that a minute or so especially unattended.
Remember oil isn't a renewable energy source. One day it will all be gone?

Re: Electrical Clicking (Acceleration and Decelleration)

Make sure your cargo lamp switch is turned off. The clicking is it turning on/off at the 15MPH threshold.
