My turn signal with just stop working and I have to turn on the hazards and then it will work again for a short time!
Turn signal clicking noise will continue to click when turn signal or hazard lights are not engaged. There will be periods of time when everything works great, then randomly will have a period of time when the clicking noise is very frequent. Sometimes the clicking is more severe than other times. Sometimes my turn signal will not work at all when engaged.
clicking like from center console like blinkers are on...very ramdon
I bought the vehicle used and have it for 6 years. The turn signal has been clicking for the last 5 years. When I took it in to get it checked, I was told that the dash would have to be taken out to repair switch. Sounded waay to expensive, so I turn up the radio until the clicking stops.
Mine clicks all the time for years now. Have gotten used to it. Definitely don't want to fork over a big wad of cash to to fix their defect.
Diagnosed by GM dealer. Replaced turn signal switch in steering colleum
constant clicking noise coming from the dash from behind the flasher switch.
Constant clicking noise- Turn signal switch needed to be replaced. $250
I'm having problems with the clicking noise, in my hazzards too it clicks like the blinker's are on when it's not and the noise get so severe to where it shuts my car off
the fix for this is simple. remove the switch housing from the steering column and clean the contacts. there is a Utube video showing how this is done. took me 15 minutes and the problem is solved.
Broken sash on driver window, turn signal doesn't work till you hit hazzard
When you use your blinker and then blinker sounds turns off, it continues to click rapidly for a while. Is is in the shop right now getting diagnosed and fixed.
Gotta love the eratic clicking at random times. I have not tried replacing the switch yet.
Relay clicking when steering wheel moves. It feels like it is behind the dash where the hazard switch is.

Turn signal noise will not stop. Rapid, incessant clicking. Cleaned and regreased the contacts in the steering column - did not fix.
Clicking sound as if turn signal is on, the yellow and red parts of the gauges lights flash along with clicking, and when I turn the car off or open the door the parking lights flash all around the car
Rapid clicking sound after use of turn signal and sometimes it just randomly happens.
Clicking noise behind radio for hazard lights. Blinkers don't work all the time but I can push hazard lights button on and off and the blinkers will start working again.
