Customer Question
1994 sentra the relay...

1994 sentra the relay above the junction box behind the fuse block is clicking rapidly and the battery and brake lights on the dash flash accordingly

Mechanic's Assistant: Many things can cause a car to make those weird sounds. Some simple, some complicated. Fortunately, the mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

The clicking/flashing speeds up as I slow the engine or lessen the electrical load

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: Great! What have you tried so far?

All I have done is identify the relay making the noise but don't know what it is for

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else the Nissan Mechanic should be aware of about your Nissan?

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

I'm not really showing any relays in the area you described. The timer module is to the right of the junction block but no relays are called out in the service information that are in that area but not in the junction block itself.

Are you able to upload a picture of the relay you're seeing?
If you remove the relay then the clicking and other symptoms stop?
