I doubt its a short. a short to power would mean something is getting power besides through the fuse and your battery would die. I short to ground would cause the fuse to blow. my guess would be some device that is controlled by this fuse is malfunctioning. if you can try and unplug devices like the radio amplifier and see if the noise is removed.
Sounds like it might have poped the main battery fuse, its in the main fuse box under the hood. some are slip in others are bolt in, Probably at least an 80 amp fuse, when u had it charged what the battery in the car or out,
If you are having trouble finding the fuse, use a fuse tester to test all of the fuses in the fuse box in under 5 minutes. It will light on fuses that are powered but not continuous through the fuse. One can buy one at Walmart or the auto parts store in your area along with some spare fuses.
First, I would have a dealer run the Vin# for your truck for the Cruise Control recall. If the recall was not performed it needs to be done. Unfortunately after some of the earlier recalls were done, people had problems with the 4x4 controls and brake lights.
If you can identify the Cruise Control and there is an add-on fuse disconnect the fuse and see if the ticking goes away.
In your case I would spend a little time to save money and use your hands to find the ticking relay.
Your fuse block should be under the dash or behind a kick panel. You will see some oblong or square relays. Feel them and unplug the ones that are ticking. Keep track of their position.
Under the hood are some black power boxes filled with relays and fuses. Do the same "Feel" test on them. When you unplug the "problem" relay the ticking noise will stop. Then the problem area will not work and you can investigate the equipment on that branch. Be it power windows, wiper delay, A/C,
power seat, and so on.
If you have a Diesel your Glowplugs have a timer which is very loud and should stop in less than 90 seconds. It definitely pulls power. Do a "feel" test on it. Your glowplug wires will lead you to it.
#2 has nothing to do with engine. It's the courtesy lights and such. #9 is the fuel pump. You'll have to see if you have power to your fuel pump. If it's working you should hear it cut in for a few seconds when you first turn your key to the "on" position. If you hear nothing, it's either burnt out again, or the power wire to it is faulty.
