Under dash, driver side, near fuse block, clicking sound

As the title states I am getting a clicking sound, sounds like a relay or something clicking, it clicks about every 10 seconds or so anytime the key is in the run position, engine running or not. It is on the driver side, under the dash, somewhere around the fuse block. I cannot for the life of me figure out what it is. I have held onto everything I can get my hands on in that area and wait for the sound to see if I can feel it to let me know where exactly it is coming from, but nothing.

Never had this before. Parked it a few days ago, removed instrument cluster (which involved unplugging the rear hatch button and cluster of course), installed a reverse glow gauge face from Speedhut, reconnected the cluster after wiring the inverter for the gauge face to my headlight switch, and then turned key to run position to test things out. This is when the clicking sound started. I thought maybe it had something to do with the rear hatch switch still being disconnected. I now have all my needles re-calibrated, the instrument cluster completely re-installed, and the rear hatch switch re-connected. Everything is back together, I still have the clicking sound when the key is in the Run position.

Anyone have any idea what this could be? It's driving me crazy.
