    My car is doing the same thing but it doesn't matter if it's a left or right turn - wish I knew what to do?

    I also have a ticking noise, but am not sure if it is the signal. I don't have to use the signal for this to happen. It kind of sounds as if it is coming from the stereo system

Left turn signal lights are not working


In my case the left front turn indicator lamp worked, but not the left rear indicator, although all the lamps would turn on with running lights activated, as well as the backup light and 'night-light' mode. The left rear turn indicator would not work with the hazard lights activated. I tested the combination switch (this is the left/right turn indicator switch you use when driving to indicate which direction you are going and is mounted/located on the steering column) and it tested O.K.. I had good continuity from the combination switch black wire, and resistance on the blue-white wire from there to the left rear turn indicator lamp, as well as good continuity on all wires going out from the left parking light fuse. Since the Haynes manual indicated that the flasher module was probably good if it made the tell-tale clicking sound, I was feeling perplexed. So I took it into a local shop that specialized in auto electrics and it turned out to be the flasher module. I was under the impression that it operated in a straight-forward left-right manner, but apparently it has a different circuit for each turn indicator lamp. So even if it is making the appropriate clicking sound when the combo switch is flipped, it could still be the flasher module. Obviously the manual leaves a bit to be desired in the troubleshooting of malfunctioning turn indicators.

I have 2001 grand am se and each time I use the right or left signal light theirs a constant clicking noise in the dashboard and sometimes the dashboard lights remains on with the clicking sound.


you will need tho change the signal switch in the steering column.
to replace it you will need a flathead screw driver, and a 7 mm socket and driver.

first you pop off the top cover of the steering column, there are no screws holding this just use screw driver and feed it into where the signal arm goes in and pry up

now use the 7 mm to remove the two bolts holding switch assembly in place.

pull up on switch and unplug the three connector on the back of switch.

plug in the new switch and then line up the switch back into place.
NOTE THE HORN SPRING WILL CAUSE DAMAGE IF YOU DO NOT PUSH IT IN OROUND THE COPPER DISC IN THE STEERING PLATE. just look at the old switch before removing it to see how it goes back in. (this is usually what people forget about)

replace the two bolts and cover.
you will now have no more clicky noises.

Sounds like your brake light switch needs to be replaced.  It is attached to the brake pedal and should cost you around $20 from an auto parts store.  If the fuses and bulbs are good there is a 99% chance it is the brake light switch.  Hope this helps!  Thanks for an honest rating and for using FixYa.

Turn signals don't flash when braking 99 grand marquis


Check all earth wires on all lights.
most lights in cars run in series so if u loose one you loose the other mainly caused by bad earth on globe holders or corrosion where bulb sits.
little sand paper goes a long way.

Sounds like a sewing machine


hey I have a solution to your signal switch, the problem lays in the switch around the steering wheel, if you take the switch apart and scrape the grooves out that have formed it will function normally again. Talk about a cheap fix but it worked for me!
