The sensor that tells the "display" that the door is open may be faulty. The switch used to always be in the door pillar but a lot of newer cars build the switch into the door lock mechanism in the door and use its input for locking and security control as well. The one that will most ofter fail is the door most often used (the driver's door).

A faulty fuel damper can produce a ticking noise, which can be heard inside the cabin when the engine is idling. Replacement of the failed dampener should correct this problem.
