The turn signal switch may fail causing the hazard/turn signal flasher to continue to click even when the turn signal switch is off. Replacing the faulty turn signal switch will commonly correct this condition.

Clicking in center of dash seems to be from something to do with the turn signal/hazard flasher. Everything is normal when the turn signal or hazards are on, but clicks sporadically when not on.

Random relay clicking (stops when either the turn signal or hazard flashers are activated) in center of dash. I've been advised to replace the signal module. Really don't want to start swapping parts as that is a poor method of trouble shooting and also gets expensive. Was there a recall on this? If so what was the campaign number?

Dinging and clicking from the dash board. Clicking sounds like it is coming from the hazard light swith area and the dinging is from the left side of dash.

Just turning hazards on and off will generally get it to stop clicking.
