A constant ticking noise through the radio could be RF interference, (radio frequency). It can be cause by any electrical motor operating in the vehicle. Eliminate the fuel pump. Turn on the radio then turn the ignition to the run position. The fuel pump will run for a few seconds then turn itself off. If the tick begins then ends after a few seconds, then suspect the fuel pump. If it is a RF interference problem, you will have to trace the problem. Turn off all electrical components when the vehicle is in the run position. If there is no tick, then turn them on one by one and see if it comes back thereby narrowing down the problem.
