Mom called saying a sound was coming from her vehicle, after checking heard a sound similar to a blinker, same frequency and everything, in the area near the gas tank on the rear drivers side. Almost want to say the fuel pump but I'm not too sure, any suggestions?

As mentioned, would help to know under what conditions you hear the clicking.

Can’t say I heard blinker sounds and rates but some sources could be:

Loose spare tire. Reach under and push/pull on the tire. If loose, get the lug wrench out of the compartment and tighten the wire - it’s a special fitting. There’s a small hatch near the tailgate sill where you engage the wrench. See owners manual.

If clicking when braking in reverse, it’s probably the ant-rattle springs in the rear calipers.

Loose sway bar bushings or links. With the X parked rock it (tilt it) to get the body to pitch side to side. Listen for the clicking - probably more like clunking.

Tell us what you find out.

Good luck!
