Hey y'all search function failed me on "ticking audio" and assorted keywords but today I noticed my dash panel, driver side, started ticking during Bluetooth or Android auto audio. When playing direct radio it goes away. Audio volume seems to not matter, anyone else experience this and have a solution?

I just had this happen to me yesterday. I thought I was tripping and there was something stuck to my tire. I turned the podcast I was listening to off and it stopped.

Sounds like EM interference with the Bluetooth since it's not happening when using the radio without Bluetooth connected. Is it a hybrid, and if so, what drive mode does it happen in? You could be picking up interference from the charging circuitry.

Also, do you have another cellular device in the truck? You could be picking up the device "searching" for a connection.
