Abnormal Clicking Noise From Hazard/Turn Signal Flasher on Oldsmobile Alero

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.

my blinkers work on and off have found that if i push the hazard light switch a few times it will trigger my car blinkers to come back on, still an issue.

Clicking noise most like the hazard signal randomly clicks for long and short periods of time for no apparent reason and is extremely annoying. Replaced the relay switch but still have the problem.

Turn signal has a short in it. Sometimes the turn signals work and sometimes they dont. Shutting the car off and restarting fixes the problem sometimes. Emergenvy flashers do not operate when turn signal does not work.
Radon Clicking sound of flasher/turn lights when not engaged.... Me Too!!!!!!!! Did Try checking the fuses and found the fuse for the turn lights would when removed stoep the noise, that would leave the turn lights in operable. P.S. Also if pushing in slightly on the Hazed button not to engage it but lightly it too would stop the bzzzzzzrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. I Rather just play radio louder.!

Just like my daughter's 03 Grand Am, my alero will sound as if turn signal is on when it is not. I am not sure whether it is the hazard switch or the turn signal/w.wiper unit that needs to be replaced as was the case with the Grand Am. Annoying. Too many of us have the problem for GM to look the other way as it is obviously a problem common to alot of vehicles.

My turn signals will not be on, but the clicking is incessant. My turn signals don't actually flash any lights when this happens, but it's really annoying.

This car is a piece of junk.. I've replaced about everything u can think of replacing on it. Now I get this anti lock service eng and trac off .. I'm tired of wasting my money on GMs junk, throw away cars! My turn signal/hazard light switch started clicking constantly !!! So I replaced it myself, 20 bucks, but the new one didn't even fit!! So I ended up replacing the entire headlight wiper assembly on the steering column .. 99 bucks plus tax... Oh and all my clear coat on the hood and spoiler is coming off... I'm pretty sure GMs CEO deserves a bonus for outstanding craftsmanship on the most expensive worthless piece of shit ever made!! I want to drive this pile into a tree !! But I'm a Chevy guy.. Well was
Turn signal/flasher switch clicks unless I use the flashers or blinkers then works but when no turn signals or flashers are being used it constantly clicks from time to time like every 2min. I tried 3 different new switches in less than 1 hour, 2 from AutoZone and 1 from Napa so this leads me to thinking there's a short or bad connector...but where?
I fixed it by replacing turn signal relay

Front blinkers both out now, but before they were completely out, turning on the hazard lights would sometimes get them to come back on. I think I need a new relay switch?
