what are is the noise left right side of dash underhood?

Reply to Dan's Post: under dashboard, driver side
Expert:  Dan replied 8 years ago.
Some customers may comment on a clicking noise coming from the I/P cluster or gauge needle sticking. Also reports of the DIC displaying Trip A or Trip B on 2003 or 2004 vehicles after an replacement IPC is installed                    Root cause appears to be the stepper motor in the cluster. Due to the magnitude of this concern, certain I/P clusters are now on backorder and the electronic service centers can not meet the demand for new/or remanufactured clusters. Enhancements have been made to the stepper motors and IP clusters. The supplier has made available a significant number of replacement clusters to address the back order condition. These clusters include improvements to internal rotors and a new motor design which will address concerns with noise and gages. The Electronic Service Centers (ESC) should be able to address dealer orders going forward as a result of better communication with the supplier. Until backorder situation is completely resolved, most replacement IPC clusters will be 2005 model year part numbers.

Reply to Dan's Post: i'm getting meter hooked up now to check battery and fuses. you think it might be either one? don't think it's the alternator do you? will let you know after the guy brings the meter.
Expert:  Dan replied 8 years ago.
alternator could cause batter to go dead but should still take a jump if battery and cables you were using were good
