A 'ticking' coming from underhood fuse box, aka Power Distribution, is probably a relay going on and off. Take the cover off, and try to id which one and replace. But it would not be loud, I'm surprised you can hear it, IF that's what it is.the relay can't 'decide' what to do

here is entire PDB with legend

click the images to size up. This one I wrote to where headlight relays are
