When you turned the AC on or off? Mine normally does it the first time the compressor kicks in after a cold night.

welcome to "tha" forums. LOL

Do you hear this clicking when the truck is running? Does it come every minute? Does it happen when the HAVC is OFF?

You didn't give us much to go on, but it sounds like you're hearing the compressor kick on and off. It's just the noise they make, if that's the case. Everyone's Ranger does it that has the compressor.

When it clicks, it is engaging the ac clutch. Once it builds up enough pressure it shuts off. Next time your under the hood, turn the ac on and watch the ac compressor.
