the abs is there , unplug the abs relay that is on the pass side fire wall, look it up if not shore. or you can start pulling fuses . what you do is turn every thing off ,close doors ,pull under hood bulb out.. then hook up a testlight in series to a batery post ,,, by taking off a battery cable(neg.) and putting the test light,, one end to cabble and the other end to post. you might try this on a good car first. example,,, while on good car,,then open door ang light whill light.. bad car will stay lite, untill drall is gone...so ok..bad car is lite and the next step is to pull fues ,,and relays untill light goes ot to locate circuit that has draw.. make sence..

i know that the ride control module control system is located there.
the clicking is the RC module doing its function check. but that should shut off when t here is no power/key is removed.
i have noticed that even with the key removed i still hear the bells from key in ignition /w door open. it could be the key switch assembly making the car think that there is a key in the ignition and thus supplying voltage to the many systems these cars have.
Just a thought...
