The purge solenoid makes the ticking noise means it is functional. If it becomes loud, then it is a sign of an internal failure of the solenoid. You should not hear it from inside the vehicle.
It can also make rapid ticking noise if there is a leak.
That will typically turn on the check engine light.
Is your check engine light illuminated?
If so scanning and retrieving the code can help determine if there is an issue with the emission system or purge solenoid.
I have attached the solenoid test procedure below for your reference.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
