Question about 1999 Pontiac Grand Am GT
The turn signal relay will actuate by itself while driving or stopped. It is at a little faster rate than the normal. While it is doing this I can put on the turn signal and it works normally. When the turn signal cancells the relay can continue to actuate. The turn signal lights are not blinking at this time. Gently moving the turn signal lever doesn't seem to have an effect. The 4 way flashers seem to work fine. The relay clicking sounds like it is behind the radio. The problem is gradually getting much more frequent. Any ideas?
I had this problem quite some time ago and found a solution in a grand am forum. I rember I took off the top plastic panel on top of the steering column and there is a single screw (torx?) underneath. Remove the screw and the entire turn signal and wiper arms come up and off. There is a copper plate that will have grease in the slots, clean the grease off and it should be ok. It has been a while but I remember the clicking sounded like it was coming from the hazzard swith behind the radio but that was not the problem-it was the copper plate. It is an easy fix. Hope this helps.

This is a fairly common problem, to correct it you need to replace your flasher unit ($30) it is located directly behind the hazard light button on the dash.

You need to replace the turn sgn switch in the columne.
