Gm will tell you this is normal lifter noise if it from the top of the motor. It could be from the exhaust but you would hear it from under the car more. I do not care for the responce from GM but they say it is ok.

SOURCE: ticking sound
A sound that is deeper than a lifter or rod bearing is usually a main bearing, though it's possible that a cracked flywheel can also make a similar noise, and won't make noise when under no load. You have identified it as engine related and not a c/v joint or other driveline item?
I suggest that you bring it to a shop known to have older experienced techs...only long term experience can train your ear to be able to tell the difference in noises like yours. I'm leaning towards a flywheel at this point but possibly actually hearing it would change my mind. (forget the lifter thing... I may have mis-read original post.)

This is a common problem on many Grand Ams. GM has a recall out there on the 00-03 models. Unfortunately they discontinued the recall for the 04 and newer models. The flasher most likely needs to be replaced. The part costs about $30 and labor can run you between 70 and 90 dollars an hour. The part only takes about 30 minutes to be replaced. So you can either get it repaired or just turn your radio up really loud and drown out the ticking noise!!! :D

That is the "Hazard Switch" located on the dash. A very easy fix and have always been a common issue with those types of GM cars.
