The K's to empty gauge is operated by the trip computer and ECU according to fuel used etc. Seeing the main gauge is OK, and the K's to empty is dependent on electronics and not tank sensor, it seems likely that the dash connector plug to dash display is loose/dirty pins or corroded. Maybe check the integrity of under dash and rear of dash circuit board connectors to see if anything changes. If it is getting intermittent signals and is effectively being constantly turned ON and OFF, that may explain the ticking sound as it becomes "alive" and then dead again.
