Tip & How-To about Pontiac Grand Am
Most GM cars especially Pontiac's are prone to a clicking noise that sounds like a relay clicking on and off repetitiously at various speeds. This is cause by a faulty direction switch. It took Pontiac years to figure this one out. My first encounter of this was my friend rebuilt a steering column with used parts and his results gave him this problem. We had found the brass contacts were mushed down grounding out at times when ever the engine was running spiking the voltage in the wiring causing the relay to turn on and off all the time. The only remedy is to replace the directional switch with a genuine GM updated part.
Then the clicking noise will be gone
