I have a loud clicking noise when at idle either in drive or in park. It happens

directly behind the right side headlight.

So, your ABS light is not illuminated??

Unplug the ABS pump to help diagnose (or its fuse or relay). Bad pumps are rare.

Never heard of this.. You try any searches on forums yet?

It's rare, but old ABS pumps can get stuck in running mode, eventually taking down the battery. If I recall some had a bad relay mounted ON the pump that failed. Newer ones have a fuse-block mounted relay that's more robust, perhaps.
