ron francis wiring problem

I have a ron francis advantage plus wiring harness in a 66 el camino with dakota digital gauges, power windows, and door poppers. My problem is that when I plug the battery cable up I hear a clicking sound coming from the fuse box is this normal for the ron francis wiring harness or is this something I done wrong. I tried to follow all of the directions to a tee so if anyone has any idea of what I may have done wrong let me know and i will check it out.
Thanks

I have the horn relay inside my car mounted to the fuse box.
could not figure out why the battery kept going down. (horns not yet installed)
Turns out--a bad part in the steering wheel install kit was grounding the horn circuit, thus turning on the horn relay.

Could also check the remote box for your door poppers----could be a relay that deactivates when the car is running-(wish my remote had that feature--too lazy to wire one in now)

Could be a two people job---one under the dash---one connecting the battery.

Gotta love those DD gages--Power windows--door poppers
I have all this stuff on the 59 Elky in my avatar. 454/TKO 5-spd
One of my 66 elkies will get the same thing----'cept with a small block
The OTHER 66 Elky is a factory 396/4spd/tilt/kneeknocker tach/buckets---Not gonna mess with this one too much.

good one---
4-ways were an option in the 66 Chevelles.
Perhaps if you have them---they are on.

Or an aftermarket tilt wheel or later oem tilt----hazards could be on

(Ididit tilt in the 59)

Doc here,

Check to see if you have lamps flashing when you hear the clicking..if you do, you probably have a switch incorrectly wired on the flash (or 4 way if used) that needs checking..

IF you don't have lamps flashing, pull the flashers see if the noise stops..if so, you have another device pulling current from the flasher system (s) you need to isolate and remove..

To do that, simply turn EVERYTHING on and look for whatever goes on/off with the "click"and make it right.


Doc

Might I suggest you pull the flashers one at a time to see if the sound goes away. Also, if it is an electonic flasher, it may be flashing even though the lights don't. Otherwise, please call ron francis tech department at 800.292.1940 or email ron at ron@ronfrancis.com
