Don't know about the clicking sound, probably a relay going ape for some reason, there are quite a few near that area, see if you can locate it by feeling for it, if you find it swap it for another of the same type, if it still clicks you will have to find out what the relay does and wether or not the circuit it controlls is working ok.
Do you mean the orange light actually in the temperature gauge its self or are you refering to the orange low coolant light.
I recently had the (in gauge) temp light on, the rad fans were on aswell but the engine temperature was normal, this was not accompanied by the red stop light.
I unplugged the connectors relating to the cooling system and closed the contact's up a bit with a screwdriver as none of them looked to have any corrosion on them, the fault has since ceased to appear.
Suggest you try something similar Derek.
