Electronic ticking sound behind dash that goes way when pushing the brake pedal

I recently just got back from Utah and got my jeep back from my friend. I lent it to him the semester I was away. But now their is an electronic ticking that comes on without pattern from behind the dash. It sounds like a relay is clicking very loud, it also goes away whenever we push the brake pedal down and everynow now and then when we push the clutch.
I think it's a relay problem somewhere in the dash but I'm not to sure.
Thanks for any help!

Just look under there and feel the flasher relay, it's above the column, and let us know what you find. Now, on to the bigger problem-Loaned it to a friend.

Be glad its in one piece. Jeeps, dirt bikes, and similar items don't go on the loaner program. You usually end up with either no Jeep, no friend , or both.

See "Proper TJ Etiquette- how to refuse a request to borrow your Jeep" in the forum guidebook in the social guidelines chapter. Take note of such tips as "laugh hysterically" and " lay a handgun on the dash" to deter this behavior.
