Its the buzzer for the key switch so you don't forget to take the key out and its likely a minor problem with the key switch it self . The buzzer can be unpluged listen for the noise when looking under the dash board and unplug it . As long as your not haveing other issues with the key switch and the vehicle is running OK then you realy don't need the buzzer and it won't effect anything else on the vehicle just don't forget your keys good luck with it

Why would my 1996 sonoma make a buzzing sound in cab with or without key on with no electrical power

Using hot battery, hook in up, wait 2 or three minutes and then feel of every relay you can find. If one is hot, replace it. If none are, find the buzzer and disconnect it. Use lenght of hose to listen to one end and poke around with the other to locate noise.

I hear a buzzing sound from a relay ...what does that mean

Most commonly, you have an actual "buzzer".
That means this part is doing what is was made for.
It migh be telling you your key is still in the ignition, your door is open, your lights are on, you need to fasten your seat belt, or any of several other things.
I don't know what year, make, and model your pick-up is, but different trucks and models have different "buzzers".
If the sound irritates you, you might be able to "unplug" it.
Be sure not the throw it away, in case someting on your truck requires that buzzer to be in place to work.
Be blessed.

2002 Cabrio... Where can I get a relay board?

Some manufactuers use a buzzer sound when you leave the keys in the ignition and car shut off. Some use a buzzer for a seatbelt that is not fastened when it detects a passenger.

The use of the turn signal or Hazard could break the circuit and silence the buzzer.
