Question about Chevrolet Cars & Trucks
Hazzard switch keeps clicking when i use my signal lights
This is a pretty common problem on most gm's. What is happening is the white wire from the flasher module is being grounded inside of the multifunction switch when it is not supposed to be. The fix for this is top relace the turn signal multifunction switch that the turn signal lever is attached to. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

The multi-function (aka combination) switch probably has contaminated grease in the switch contacts from wear.
for do-it-yourself repair instructions. You can also buy a new aftermarket switch, if you don't want to take apart the existing one and clean up the electrical contacts.
For example, see:
(or just go to http://www.autozone.com/ and search for part #SW1414)
For 2003 Grand Am, it was listed as "Duralast / dimmer switch", but other makes & models may go by another name.
The OEM (GM) part number for mine was: 22676853

This is a common problem on many Grand Ams. GM has a recall out there on the 00-03 models. Unfortunately they discontinued the recall for the 04 and newer models. The flasher most likely needs to be replaced. The part costs about $30 and labor can run you between 70 and 90 dollars an hour. The part only takes about 30 minutes to be replaced. So you can either get it repaired or just turn your radio up really loud and drown out the ticking noise!!! :D

i have the sameproblem. Dealer part was quoted to me at $510.00. All after market parts stores were $350- 450. Try moving the emerg. flasher button while you step on the brakes and someone else watches the lights. I jammed paper beside the button and they work until I can fix it.I had to order the multi-function switch. and you have to pull the air bags to replace it.
