OK, I've changed the flasher unit inside. No luck. When you use either blinker, after it switches off, there is a fast, semi-loud clicking (like the blinker, with no blinking light) coming from the flasher unit. Is this a short somewhere, or does anyone know how to fix it? Thanks!

The contacts in the turn signal switch itself are a known issue , though far less common than the flasher unit , which was the subject of a recall on some years/models!
Other than confirming wiring and connections , especially ground wiring , usually solid brown in color , try a switch.

My malibu does this too. I put a piece of card board between my air vent up by the 4 way switch and it stopped. I haven't fixed it yet, but it works.
