i have key wont turn at all

When driving my car when i let off the gas i notice a steady clicking sound that seems to follow the tire rotation. I have checked for rocks nails ect. Jacked car up checked for play in hub assembly and cv axel, brake pads are good, no rust on rotor faces, searched for loose peices, cant find anything. It does it going straight, turning left or right, with or without clutch in, in or out of gear. Stops when car stops moving. I greased ball joints and tie rod ends seemed a tad bit better but not much. Sounds like coming from behind dash but cant find anything tuere either and the speedometer is by sensor not cable but thats what the sound reminds me of. Any help would be great

alternator checked good on machine on car less than 11v good battery could the starter cause problems or should I replace pos cables I did get new alt anyway bearings sounded rough and its VERY diffacult to remove and don't want to experience again Thank you for any input PS before removing when I turned on A/C a mess of codes and all idiot lights came on
