I have clicking noises too...I was told depending on what side you hear the clicking on is the side a light is ready to go out. Mine was on the right and sure enough a bulb went out in the passenger tail brake light. I fixed and replaced the bulb and the clicking went away. Later I noticed some corrosion on the wire connecting to the same area the bulb was replaced and shortly after, the bulb went out again and the clicking returned.....
Googling that "symptom" for the 2002 Malibu DOES point towards the hazard swith but it has been told to me and proven in my situation that it can also be a warning that something in the network of the lights and switches has an issue.

SOURCE: 03 Chevy Suburban says right rear door ajar when closed

Replace the rear door pin-switch if needed after testing proper operation.
It is telling the alarm the door is open all the time.
Most likely corroded terminals or wire.

SOURCE: 2006 chevy malibu.... where is the egr valve

If it's a US car then there is not an egr on the 2.2L engine. I think some of the mexican and oversea's engines had them, but not here in the US.

Why do I hear my 2000 Malibu beep 14 times on the drivers side of vehicle and then stops?

Could be just a glitch. The BCM controls the beep through the radio. Thats why you hear for the speaker/drivers side. There are three possibilities for the beep. Door ajar with the key in the ignition, turn signal on too long, and seat belt unbuckled with the car running. Check for lights in the dash. no door ajar light, no seatbelt light. That could be the problem.

Door ajar light and buzzer stays on when I'm driving my 2006 ford focus

This problem is caused by one of the door ajar sensing switches being defective, it is a common fault in Many Ford cars and light trucks. Each door has a switch and two at the tail gate door. The switches are attached to the side of the door latch and very hard to replace, since you would most likely have to detrim at least two doors to find the bad switch the most prudent thing to do is have the dealer scan the door ajar waring system, the scan will indicate exactly which switch has the problem.

My 2006 Chevy Malibu (LS I believe) is constantly saying there is a "door open" when all of my doors, including the hood and trunk, are closed completely. What could the issue be?

The doors, when shut, hit a sensor on the side of the metal frame. When it is closed, it shuts the lights in the inside off and turn the dash light off. One of your doors are not hitting the sensor and pushing it back. Find which one it is and that will solve the issue.

My display keeps saying door ajar and all the doors are shut why does this keep my dome light on?

One of your doors has a bad latch assembly, could be left front door since it is use the most. the sensor is not telling the car that the door is closed.

My 'Door Ajar' light is on along with the bells, but the doors are all shut and the interior light is not on

It is very likely that one of the door switches is faulty and doesn't register as closed when the door is actually closed.

My 2002 Chevy Malibu is making the turn signal sound when the turn signals are not turned on. It also is intermittently accompanied by a bell as if a door is ajar. What needs to be done to fix this?

For the first part next time it is doing it try messing with the hazard button on the dash, the noise will stop or go away for a while if that's your problem.
As for the bell it would be something differant than the hazard switch. Is any of the Idiot lights coming on when it does it?
