Clicking relay noise - heated/cooled seats, steering wheel

I've had my 2011 Overland since May. Only recently I've noticed a sound like a relay clicking from somewhere around the glove box, whenever I turn on/off the seat heaters/coolers, the heated steering wheel, or the rear AC outlet. For the seats, the clicking only happens when they are turned on or turned off (not when I change the intensity).

I never noticed this before, and I've had it 6 months, but I'm also not sure that this is a new thing (I could just be more perceptive these days). Can anyone confirm whether this relay clicking noise is normal, or if it might be a problem?

It is normal.

Kind of the same situation.

No matter how I start the jeep, when I turn on/off the driver side seat warmer, there is a audible click from the relay(?) under the passenger seat. Seat warmer works though.

No clicking when selecting the passenger seat warmer on/off.

Like mentioned above, that's normal. I consider it to be an audible confirmation.

Re: Clicking relay noise - heated/cooled seats, steering wheel

I just find it peculiar that only the driver-side has begun to do it and not the passenger-seat. Just started yesterday.
