I'm new to the forum and am looking for advice on this issue. There is a fast, loud clicking noise, possibly from behind the dashboard, which lasts several seconds, when I open the door of my 2016 Jeep Patriot. The engine is not running and the doors are not locked, and there was no difficulty opening the door or starting the engine. This just started one day ago and is happening frequently but not every time when the driver side front door is opened (engine not on) and happened once when the passenger front door was opened. It also happened one time when I was driving and coming to a stop at the end of my street. I have seen a lot of posts about clicking noises but not exactly the same as my situation. Any advice would be appreciated.
