Question about 2004 Pontiac Grand Am

3 Answers


There is a bothersom continual ticking sound after I use my turn signal switch. It ticks, like it's supposed to, when I signal to turn, but when the switch flips off, there is still a ticking sound (the signal lights are working as they should). Eventually it stops, but the next time I use the turn signal, same thing over again.

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

I would think it would be your flasher switch. The one under your dash that makes the ticking sound. Just unplug it and replace it.

I had the same problem with the annoying ticking. You can replace the turn signal switch which is located in the steering column. It costs around $45 at a junkyard but you might find it on Ebay. Good Luck.

The emergency flasher in the center of your dash is a module. it is causing this problem. call your local GM dealerand givethem your VIN# because some of these were replaced for no charge to the customer. VIN# is on a steel plate mounted to the top of your dash. it can be seen thru the driverside corner of your windshield,from out side the car. This is called a flasher module, and it will stop your tail lamps from working also.It is veryimportant to do this as soon as posible.

I have a ticking like a blinker sound ticking inside my vehicle.. it sounds like a continuous blinker going. All my out side lights flashers blinkers are working .What could this be?

look for the hazzard /4 ways switch. see if this is where this ticking is coming from. if so slowly move the turn signal switch . if it stops or changes, you have a bad turn signal switch. the hazzard and the turn signals operate through the hazzard has a built in relay.hope this was helpful

There is a ticking noise everytime my car is on that sounds like the turn signal noise but theres no pattern or order to the ticking. i thought the hazard switch was bad, what could the ticking noise be?

It could be a relay clicking under the dash due to a bad ground circuit somewhere in the vehicle. It would be best to have a professional put an ear to it.

There is a ticking sound in the dash in my pontiac grandam se 2001

my brother had this problem with his car, and his turn signals were acting up also... somewhere at the base of the turn signal lever there is a switch that is activated by moving the lever up (right) and down (left) and there is a type of grease inside this switch. he solved the problem by wiping a lot of this grease out of there. (after years of use, metal shavings from the circuit build up in the grease allowing the circuit to complete itself randomly, causing the clicking sound) try it out and see if it helps. might not hurt to see if you can replace that grease as well.

Why does a 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix make a ticking noise at 40 MPH ?

Please try to give more information about the ticking.
Can you pin point the source or location of the Tick?
Is it coming from inside of the Car or out? From the dash, Wheel, Etc
And is the tick a steady tick, Maybe a metalic noise?
Try to expand the on the subject the best that you can.
Then I'll get back to you on this matter.

2003 Grand AM GT ticking coming from dash

try removing the hazard flasher, if the clicking persists try the drl relay, unless you can isolate what is ticking the only way to find it is to disable one circuit at a time

Turn indicator sound (ticking) continues after signal is cancelled. replaced flasher and sound continues.

Remove the signal lever (switch) clean the grease completely and lube again with di-electric grease.
This should solve your problem.

Does alarm system have a fuse and where is the location. Ticking noise sounds like emergency flasher is on.

sounds like the multi function switch which controls wipers, turn signals and emergency flashers. just had mine replaced by dealer. first they changed the flasher switch but the noise came back. cant tell you how much they charge because it was covered with an extended warranty.
