That's exactly what my 91 TQ does, except for the flickering.

everything is off when it ticks, heater, heated seats
etc. it starts as soon as i turn the car on and stops
after about 10 seconds when i shut it off. it doesnt
sound like its comin from behind the speedo though.
more like from the area near the front drivers side
speaker. the lights pulsate while it clicks and as
soon as i shut the car off something clicks by the
glove compartment and it stops ticking and the
interior light stops pulsating. weird.
