What is this? Ford doesn't seem to know

Hello, I have an 09 Ford Focus SE and this part has been making a constant rapid clicking sound when my car is off for a while now. I've contacted Ford a few times and they either have no idea what it is or just don't want to tell me.

It's located under the fuse panel beneath the steering wheel and it appears to have two part numbers, one located on the front and one on the back.

Front # - 5L5T-14A099-AA
Back # - 5L5T-14A464-AA

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Ford finally told me that the first part number translates to 5L5Z-14A099-AA. Apparently it's a "shield" of some kind, but don't know what it's shielding

Well, unless you can show more it's highly likely there is nothing there to make any clicking noise while car is off. It looks like part of an electrical connector. But a part that can make no noise. Keep on looking................

Most of that is missing? Its a switch. The switch part is missing, the mechanism is what you have. when you push the white thing in and slide it down the slot, the other side moves a mechanical switch to contact another point on that circuit. Your missing the part all that plugs into. All the holes in the white plate are the female part, your missing the electrical switch that plugs into. Then when you slide the thingy it switches what ever on. Seen them before, but never on a car???? Maybe an aftermarket kill switch? Minus the switch? They are usually a breaker switch, it will slide back and snap unlocked when the breaker goes. So ya, never seen one used on a car.
