Flasher keeps on ticking NON-STOP whithout the flashers actually lighting up.
Left turn signal stays on after car is off
Turn signals stop working completely during driving, sometimes producing a constant tonal noise, other times no noise. The a/c stops working at the same time.
turn signal sound goes on at random moments,but not the actual signal

Erratic clicky-sound of the turn signal, yet no visible/physical problem with the signal. Just an annoyance.
I switch to right, but the left signal starts blinding
Turns signals stopped functioning properly and began to stick on or off. Correction was done by dealer under recall.

flasher noise with no signal lights flashing. The first thought is to replace the flasher...wrong. The second thought is the signal switch. This is an unnecessary cost. Simply buy a can of electrical contact cleaner, spray vigorously inside the switch while moving the lever up and down...voila !!
