The noise your hearing could be from the clock spring. That's the electrical component that allows air bag and radio/cruise control funtions in a rotating component. Be very careful with trying to lubricate the wheel with any type of spray. Remember this is the airbag module.

Disconnect the negative cable at battery. Using a flat bladed tool, gently pry off the lamp lens. The bulb is easily removed once the lens is off. If your replacing the light fixture assembly, the overhead console may have to be removed replaced as complete unit as on some models it is part of the console.

I didn't see any service bulletins in reference to your symptom. This system is fairly complex and uses the body control module for door lock functions. GM has had some problems with the body control modules and that could be the issue here. The module requires programming when replacing, so I'd recommend a qualified repair shop with experience on GM vehicle.
