    I just had the same problem in my 2000 GMC Jimmy. It clicked from behind the glove box like the signals were on but were not on. I had the turn signal switch/arm replaced, and thank god it doesn't click anymore!

    At the dealer, the part is 225.00 and at O'Reily's it is 136.00. I decided to buy the one from OReily's because it's cheaper.The only thing is, when the turn signal cancels after making a turn it has a popping sound. I hope this helps

I also have a 2000 GMC JImmy, my truck started doing the same thing. The first couple times it happened I noticed little puffs of smoke coming from the console right where the hazard light button is. I believe it was the blinker switch itself. Honestly, I checked into a new swithch, and it was around $150, so I hesitated. The funny thing is it went away on its own. It lasted a total of 2-3 months, went away for 2 months, came back for a week, and hasnt done it in the past two months. I am completely guessing, but I think it is possible that there was dirt or metal wear shavings that got in the switch and worked themselves out. Either that or the truck is posessed, which I would not doubt. If I could get more than four cents for trade on the thing, I would have sold it along time ago. Try shooting some compressed air around the hazard button, and where the switch goes into the column. Perhaps some electrical contact spray if that does not work. If that does not work, try giving it some time and see if it goes away as mine did....... hope this helps. I know it is annoying to listen to, but if it is not harming anything, give it a bit.........

There could be many things that can cause this. Could be the bulb sockets or fuse box.Hondas typically have a light module located behind the glove box . As well could be as simple as a ground cable or bad alarm or command start if applicable to your vehichle.

1999 Lexus RX 300 clicking sound below glove box on AC system

If you take the glovebox out, you can see the air inlet servomotor on the left side of the blower housing. (SEE DIAGRAM)

This is very likely to be what you are hearing. This is a quite common problem. This servo is electronicall controlled. When the HVAC is turned on, the servo is supposed to go through a "full swing" to test itself. Many times, things (papers, napkins, drinking straws, etc.) from an overflowing glove box get jammed in the recirc-air flap right behind the glove box. when this happens, the servo cannot make a full swing and sometimes it damages the servo, which continues to attempt the full swing and keeps clicking because it is stripping its internal gears trying to make it happen.
You will most likely have to remove whatever it is that is jamming the door and replace the servo.

What causes a clicking sound when the turn signal is not turned on

Likely a bad combination switch. If you jiggle the turn signal arm lightly and you hear clicking coming from the glove box area, then you need new combination switch.

I have a 2005 Tahoe with 43,000 miles and it will not start. It is not the battery. When you turn on the key all it will do is click and all light will come on.

Most likely the battery--even though you say no

If the battery is new ,then the solenoid on the starter
or the starter it's self

The hazard lights start flashing and I can't turn

there must be alarm fitted that either has the siren disconnected or turned off. Basically sensing an intrusion alert or voltage drop. Flip out the hazard switch, there will be a wire which runs seperate from the body loom into this light, just cut it, the correct one though. if needs be trace it back.....probably end up behind the glove box
