You're probably just hearing the ABS system doing its job, just like if you were to brake hard going forward.

The truck has 210,000 miles on it . I have never heard the clicking noise before.The brake clicking noise comes from under the speedometer dash area when braking in reverse. 2000 ranger v-6 auto. It almost sounds like the turn signal when i press on the brake pedal. The brakes work fine.

When you hold the pedal down dose it keep clicking? Or dose it just click one time when you press the pedal?

It clicks when I press the pedal down but does not continue to click. It does not do this all the time though.

check under bed where the tires are maybe when you hit the breaks the tire hits something, assuming you have stock suspension
