Question Dash clicking noise?

Ok, today I start her up and start to drive...a/c is off and from behind the dash or maybe down by the pedals I hear clicking and lots of it. Sorta sounds like an electrical short. When I stopped the car it stopes and start driving again and it starts back up. Lasted about 2 minutes or so and then was gone. I haven't gotten it to repeat the sound again. Any ideas? Apart from the sound everything else was normal.

***More info...went on a 200mile road trip today and the clicking was definately happening and a lot. It sounds like it's either coming from the diagnostic hook up right under the steering wheel or it's coming from the fuse box. In fact the clicking sounds like...if you are listening really carefully but only louder...when you turn on the rear defrost and there is a small click from the fuse box. My gosh does it do it a lot when it starts acting up, but it's also very random when it does it and will just stop for no reason at all. When it is happening it also does it more and faster when there is a bump. I plan on pulling fuses to see if any are fried and maybe still getting a connection due to vibrations and such, but everything in the car seems to work just fine. Not sure if it was in my head or not, but with the curise control on it seems to do it more.***

Turned out to be the wiring for the pax seat, both the movement and heater. Finally made the connection when the car was off and my wife sat down..."click click" from the fuse box. Pulled the heater fuse for now and that helped a lot, but still some clicking since the movement control fuse is still in and that's only because that same fuse controls the locks. I'll pull the seat when I have the time to. For now looks like I'll have to ride solo.
