If it happens when you turn on the air conditioning fan it could be your blend door actuator. Part is around $30, and it can be done at home. its a bit of a hassle getting to it, but doable. Youtube has videos too. Good luck!

Try to isolate the issue. Does this sound happen constantly or can you make it stop? Turn off everything. Turn things on one at a time until it happens again. Don't forget brake lights and reverse lights.

No need to yell, just trying to help. ;)
Is it the relay making the noise, as turn signal relays do? If so, maybe a short to ground somewhere? Any of your LEDs burnt up (all lights working)? Pull turn signal bulbs until it stops or get a meter on it.
