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?
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?
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

You have a bad flasher,go online type in google images ford blinker flasher so you will see what the look like.its located under the drivers side steering wheel probably in the fuse box pull the old one out replace it with a heavy duty flasher problem solved
the blinker control under and to the right of the steering column under the knee panel is out its a cheep part you remove the knee panel an turn on the turn signals listen for the ticking you find that part unplug it and replace it yours is bad worn contacts this is a cheap part easy to fix don't let people rip you off good day
that vehicle has a desperate relay for the hazards which is why they work, you have a defective signal flasher sometimes called a signal relay, follow the noise to locate exactly where the part is, usually under driver side of dash, it is a very cheap part and easy to install.
My '02 Alero did the same thing every since I got the car 5 years ago. After 6 visits to the dealership and them telling me it was the hazard light switch which had gotten recalled, I just gave up. 2 years ago, I started dating a mechanic and he figured out what the problem was. The contact in the steering panel that controls the blinker was dirty. He took my car to work and fixed it. It's definitely something you could do at home if you have a little know how, me being a woman, cars aren't my thing so he did it. He used this link below as a step by step on how to do it. Although its for a Grand Am, its essentially the same car. Hope it helps! http://www.wikihow.com/Fix-Grand-Am-Turn-Signals
No Turn Signal Operation (blinker)The turn signal lights in your car are a basic electrical system that controls the front and rear blinker lights to alert the intended direction of the vehicle. We have listed some of the most common problems and repair troubleshooting tips below: Troubleshooting Procedure To start troubleshooting this problem:
Turn the key to the on position (do not start engine)
Inspect the system fuse located in the fuse panel and replace if needed. If you cannot find the location of the blinker fuse consult your owner's manual or an online repair manual
When a blinker flasher fails it can cause blinker lights to say on, not blink, or not go on at all. To test the blinker system flasher, remove the flasher unit and insert a jumper wire between the two terminals. If blinker stays on in both directions without blinking, replace the flasher. If you cannot find the location of the blinker flasher consult your owners manual or an online repair manual.
Check and see if your hazards switch are not sticking..The flasher is right under the steering column..Turn blinker on with engine off and you'll be able to follow the clicking noise from the flasher.Just hopefully it doesnt stop before you investigate where it is..Hope this helps you and good luck..and have a great day...
There are 2 common things that cause this. 1. the hazzard flasher is faulty. the hazzard button and the turn signal flasher are all in one. Sometimes pushing the hazzard button in slightly will get the noise to happen, and is an indication it is faulty. 2. The turn signal switch in the steering column is bad. Turning the turn signal from left to right- very fast and harshly, will sometimes clear it up for awhile. Tech JK --------------
If your security lite is blinking on the dash board with the key on then your security fuel line is locked. quick fix leave the key in the ignition for 10 minutes IN THE ON POSITION <===very important to leave key in for ten minutes on the on position! security lite should stop blinking and fuel will get into the lines you may need to spray some quick start in the intake remove the air filter hose and spray in the intake and start her up. you may have the same problem I ran into and have to turn your key on don't start the car ye wait about ten seconds with key on on position the turn it over should stop the security lite from coming on all the time and locking the fuel lines. let me know if this worked
