2013 GT Clicking from interior fuse box
Hello, I have a 2013 GT that won't start. I tested my battery with my ancient voltmeter and it shows a little over 12. The confusing part is there's a rapid clicking noise coming from the interior fuse box while the key is out of the ignition. Putting the key in does nothing in any position. The only way to stop the clicking is to remove the black connector with the white lever (see picture) or disconnecting the battery. This is different than most battery issues I've dealt with before. Before I go spend $$$ on a new battery, I was wondering if anyone has any tips on what else to check. Thank you.
I should clarify that putting the key in the ignition this morning seems to have started this issue. Also, nothing comes on (lights, radio etc.) when the key is in and in any position. I should also note that this is the factory battery and the car was sitting for about 4 days. This really leans towards the battery being dead but I'm not so sure that's the case based off what I'm experiencing. I'm really trying to avoid going back and forth to the store with a battery strapped to my luggage rack on my motorcycle.
EDIT: I don't think I had enough caffeine when I tried this earlier. My analog multimeter skips between 10 and 20v and I must have read it wrong. I went back, tested my motorcycle battery and it was at least a couple volts higher then the car battery so I'm assuming it's just the battery. I'm still a little confused why I get the clicking noise when the key is out. Now I'm scarred something else may be wrong.
