Question about 2003 Pontiac Grand Am

1 Answer

Turn signal noise

2003 grand am 6cyl 3.4L. the device that makes the "clicking noise" for the turn signal goes off sporadically, and with no real rhythm.

The turn signals all work properly when activated, and when turn signals are activated, the clicking noise is the normal steady rhythm.

The problem is the device that makes the clicking noise goes off when the turn signals have not been activated, as if it is getting electricity when it shouldn't.

Any ideas as to what is wrong and how much to fix?

To fix this problem y may need to replace the turn signal switch, the cancellation cam might be broken, but check it first.

My 1996 jeep grand cherokee is maKing a buzzing noise by the fuse box and only goes away when I turn my hazards or turning signal on

There's a relay/flasher that sounds like it may be dying. There are actually two of these in your Cherokee - round plug piece about an inch tall that plugs into your fuse block.

The good news these are cheap (less than $10 online). I'd try replacing the turn signal flasher with a new one and see if the noise goes away.

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.

Signal light clicking and won't stop.

Its annoying not dangerous. Make sure a bulb is not out. Then try changing the relay it sounds like it could be bad.

Continous clicking (signal lights)

HI.there is a defective part called the hazard lamp switch located in the middle of the dash.These switches fail internally.Try poking the switch hard with your fingers a few times when you hear the noise.If the noise goes away,the switch is probably faulty.The switch is very easy to replace.Just remove the trim on the dash carefully,then remove the switch.
