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?

Hazard Clicking light continue to click even when the switch is off. I replaced the switch and it's still the same.

My 2002 Malibu LS recently started with the hazard button clicking noise. All signals work as normal, but when the signals are not in use, the clicking noise is random and highly irritating.

Signal lights work fine, but when you turn the signal lights off, there is a continuous clicking coming from the dash, around the hazard light button area.

Constant ticking. Can feel the vibration when you touch the hazard light symbol.
