I have a 03 Alero 2.2L and the clicking sound of the turn signals kept going on even though I wasn't using them. I located the hazard switch and replaced it and that seemed to take care of that but now I...
If this turns out to be an electrical wiring problem, it will be a doozy!
I once found a problem with a friend's tail lights doing crazy things, signals bouncing all around, blinking when they shouldn't and so forth, reminds me of yours. He had replaced bulbs in a tail light with entirely wrong bulbs, was a two filament bulb (you know, with two little button terminals on the base) in a one filament, single contact button socket...or maybe vice versa, was a long time ago, but was the wrong bulb anyway, and caused that whole side of the rear lights to go crazy and just about drove him crazy too. Does this sound eerily familiar?
I would check the bulbs, make sure they are the right ones. Those corner lights, are they supposed to blink with the turns, or no?
Finally, and this may turn out to be your problem, you may have a bad turn signal switch. On American made cars, the brake light wire is routed through the turn signal switch. That's why they share the same filament in the same bulbs they work at...yeh, check the bulbs, then try a used turn switch from a salvage yard-just plug it into the harness connector without installing it first, and see if it solves the problem. If that not it, you will need professional help-and counseling maybe by then...no, I'm joking. Post back with what you find out.
