Seat heater relay.  There are two identical ones, side by side.  One is
for the driver's seat, one for the passenger.  Swap them over and see
what happens to the problem.  If you still get the furious clicking, it's
the switch.  If you only get the furious clicking when the passenger
seat heater is used, it's the relay.

If you pull from a junkyard, pay attention to the suffix letter.
