IAC Click

I just got 94 Cougar with the 3.8. I have learned alot by reading through all these posts but I still have a stupid question. Is the IAC suppose to make constant clicking sounds at idle? Also, my fuse for the alternator charge gauge and the low fuel/coolant/wiper fluid and door ajar indicator panel keeps popping if i try to replace. It came with a popped 5amp fuse in it. Is this correct and are there any likely spots for a short?

It's not supposed to make any click sounds. The click sounds that you are hearing is most likely the fuel injectors, and that sound is normal.

Thanks for the answer...The IAC clicks at the solenoid. When I touch it, i can feel the click coming from it. To clarify...the solenoid is not suppose to make a clicking noise?

No clicking. Are you sure you're not talking about the EGR pressure transducer? Because I think that is prone to clicking a lot if it goes bad or there is a problem with the EGR circuit.
