HEARING CLICKING NOISE IN DRIVER DOOR, DASH AND PASSENGER ARMREST?..ALL THIS WHILE CAR WILL NOT START??

2008 Cadillac Escalade • 83,000 miles

We bought the car used one year ago with 24,000 miles. Car fax checked out fine. Two months ago while driving I noticed the radio going on and off. Also the same time the door locks unlocking and locking. Thought it was strange and kept driving. Well last week the same thing started to happen again, this time I pulled over put the car in park and turned it off. As soon I did this I started to hear a clicking noise in arm rest and the car would not start! It was completely dead. 2 min go buy the clicking stops and the car turns on. Runs fine after that, like nothing ever happend! Untill about 2 hrs later it did it all over again! It's been a few days and it hasn't happend! We got the car checked out, mechanic said everything tested fine? Could it be a electrical problem? Pls help! I'm starting to think this car is possessed!

Could be the door lock actuator that's clicking overall here can be caused by the body control module failing-its an electrical problem

This is a intermitant problem. Its a short or open causing a relay or part to click. Youll need to remove the door panel. Then when u hear the clicking find what is clicking.I seem to remember a loose or open ground causing this. Thats y it wont restart

Thanks for your replies. So when I take my car to the dealership what should I say or ask them to check? Will this come up if I have them check the electrical system? Should I use the dealership? ( They charge arm & leg). Also what kind of cost am I looking at?. Thanks again
