Question about 2004 Oldsmobile Alero
My 2004 Alero all of a sudden started a blinker noise while I was driving. If I turn on my turn signals or flashers the sound goes from a quick blinker noise to a regular blinker noise. All of my signal lights work front & back. I removed the fuse and the noise stops and of course my turn signals front & back don't work. If I put it back in the noise starts all over again and my signals work again. Does this mean I need a new fuse?
Hi, Check all lights and if good check fuse(s). Also have the blinker replaced.

I had the same problem and it ended up that the whole turn signal assembly needed to be replaced. it cost quite a bit but the noise is gone.

We have a 2000 Olds Alero and the same thing here. GM refuses to address the problem. Where is the news on this??? Perhaps I should have bought a Toyota. At least they fix the problems. It is not the bulb. There is a faulty blinker switch or blinker assembly from what I have been reading on. Any idea how to replace the blinker switch or assembly?

Sounds like your electronic flasher unit maybe stuck causing the noise. they are generally located under the dash on driver side just below the instrument cluster.

I thought the same thing. In the past with this car that was the case, it needed a lightbulb replaced somewhere on the car. So after replacing 4 lightbulbs on the car, it still makes the noises...question for someone: I did notice that when i open the doors on the car, the dome light does come on but there are no lights down by the floor in the front of the car...if these bulbs are burnt out too then I will need to replace these and maybe the ticking noises will stop? Are there lights for the floor area on the 2003 Alero model?

My wife alero had that problem until I figured out one of her bulbs was blowed in the rear brake light spoiler. After I changed the bulb it stopped.... so I am asumming its an alert to let you know one of your bulbs have blowed
