Cool strange noise

My '88 560 SEC has developed a strange noise (a ticking sound) coming from behind the buttons of the center console and my air doesn't work. When the car starts moving, it ticks away and then after about 3 minutes, it stops and then the air works. Any idea what it might be? It always re-occurs again after it has sat for a bit.

It's the 3 minute fake time bomb count down feature, however yours is broken. It's supposed to shoot a flag out of the air vent that uncoils and says "BANG!", so you probably need a vacuum pod replaced to get working.
