    Hi all. This is a bit odd, but I can't find an answer however much I research. My partner has a strange connection to the auxillary audio in our car. When she touches it, it makes a very loud and repetitive click click clicking. For no one else this happens. We have tried all kinds of different hypothesis, variations. We don't have carpets, tried discharging any possible eelctrostatic charge, however many people she pokes with the jack tip it's only her who makes the clicking. Any possible ideas why this might be? i know this isn't at all important, but I'd like to get to the bottom of it as it's interesting.

    Assuming that connector is like a miniature phono plug . . .mono or stereo? and with plastic or metal case/shell ?
    she touches the tip to people and possibly doesn't get even a hummmmmmmm from any others.
    While she both holds the connector with her hand and then touches the tip to some or any specific part of her body, then gets a clicking ? Is she touching bare skin or metal that is being in contact with her body ? ( That is a valid reason , but only from make and break touching, not if continually touching.)
    Is she old enough or in such medical shape as to have a pacemaker ?

    She's a robot, or maybe she's wearing a watch that causes this.

    Ok. So when the tip of a jack (4 sections to the jack) touches only her skin it clicks loudly. If she holds the plastic jack cover there's a faint click. She has no electronic devices on her, n internal devices either, no metal plates etc... just fillings, no previous radiotherapy or MRI scans. When it touches any part of her skin. It clicks from continuous touching. I've diagnosed her as a cyborg! any other ideas?
