The clicking noise that indicates the lights are flashing run constantly and rapidly. Only when I actually use the turning signal does it behave normally. Any input would be much appreciated, it is maddening...I have changed all turning lamps and the fuse.
I just had the exact same problem in January. You will need to have your complete blinker switch/handle replaced (sorry I don't know the technical name). Eventually you will notice that your brake lights will go out as well. I also had trouble with my hazzards. They first fixed it with one thing but the final fix was to replace the whole thing - cost just for part close to $200 dollars. I have a 2002 VUE AWD.
I hope this helps!

Re: turn signal runs constantly
You might have a bad ground somewhere .. one of those lights is not grounding properly somewhere... does it do it mostly on the right or left side ? I would check that first then check where the bulb goes into the socket and make sure you have proper bulbs and they are installed properly and each one has a ground wire somewhere to the body.. thanks jerry holler if you need more.

I'm sure you did already but make sure all turn signals are working, check all of your running lights w/ headlights on then headlights off next Ck the 4 way flashers.. Check headlights too. If all is well R/R the flasher. (located in the fuse box, you'll hear it ticking with the signals on) Good luck
Hi there., when flashers/indicators work rapidly on the dashboard you should check whether it is the same on the actual bulds. Fadt flashing is usually a sign of a bulb failure somewhere. If everything is functioning ok externally I would consult a competent technician for a diagnosis.
replace the right rear bulb. the quick flashing indicates a bad bulb. it could be a wiring problem to the rear for the signal light that you will have to check out starting at the socket and working forward.
Definitely not the flasher, as long as it is flashing or blinking somewhere. Rapid flashing indicates a burned bulb, but since you already tried new bulbs in front, possibly bad bulb sockets, loose connectors, or a bad ground for the front bulbs. If you have a test light or voltmeter (multimeter), check for power at the socket when turns are on. If power then at the front, try new bulbs or trace the ground for those lights. If no power to the socket for turn signals, recheck wiring.
Good job, and good joe to you for solvin it! Now you'll remember that's a common indicator of a burnt out bulb. For some reason I can't explain, that is how a bad bulb acts on the flasher unit - by more rapid clicking (breaking contact inside the flasher relay at a quicker rate). It seems both the front and rear signal lights have to be working for the normal flasher rate ...well good.
.. Hi there. This is a typical earth problem. Some of the lights use the same earth and when some of the earth points are not good, the power go through the other lights. That is why some lights go's faster, it's all about resistants. Check all the earth points in the light holders and under the dash and also between the battery, engine and body. Good luck.
