SOURCE: 99 Honda Civic won't start
It may be caused by a faulty ignition switch located where the ignition key is inserted. there may be some connections burnt and causing shorteges when starting. hondas are well known for having these cheap end switches....

sounds like the dampener gear shaft is trying to either open or close the vent and clicks b/c its stripped... turn the climate contol to the middle and turn it off...see what happens play with the controls back and forth from h ot to cold high to low and see if it gets worse or stopps or makes any diff at all if thats it, you can take out glovebox removes some screws/bolts and remove the gear or pull the lil plastic shaft out , however it will effect the the performace of the heater/cooling system. I would recomend taking it to a dealer/local yokal if you notice a change so that way you can still use it...let me know what you find

I have a 1998 GMC Jimmy SLT with same exact problem. I just determined exactly what it is today.
Here is what you should do:
1) Open glove box
2) Notice the u-shape mechanism that prevents the glove box from folding all the way down. (located near top left corner of OPEN glove box
3) Empty contents of glove box and then push up on U-shape and open glove box so that it hangs freely
4) Notice the wiring harness with a bolt in middle of it (located behind glove box)
5) To the right of the wiring harness is a small black box with a zip tie over it. This is the source of your problem. Just slide the zip tie to the right so that the box can then be pulled out.
This is your combination flasher for turn and hazard signals. My signals still worked while this annoying little thing kept clicking. The model # is GM11516051. You can find one on e-bay for at least 1/2 the price of the dealer's.

Remove the screws on the glove box, then on the side of the dashboard you will see two caps. Remove the caps and you will see two nuts that you have to remove. once you have removed the bolts, you can remove the straps on the blower and evaporator. once you remove the straps have some one help you lift the end of the dashboard up carefully to give you room to remove the blower. and disconnect the connectors. You will have to play a little bit to remove because of the tight space.
