The flasher unit has gone bad and needs to be changed. The flasher module is a part of the hazard module also. The clicking is the unit is still working but there is not enough voltage to activate the lights to flash. It's common on the Malibu's and other GM product cars similar to the Malibu like Grand Am's Ect. I believe Auto Zone has the replacement part for you car and is more reasonable in price then the dealer and the y also have the step by step instructions to replace the flasher module. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help.

The flasher unit (turn signal and hazard) starts the clicking sound as soon as the ignition key is turned on.


sounds to me the switch is bad, as if its stuck in the turn signal position, could be the relay or blinker faulty. Replace the blinker/relay and if thats all good, its your turn signal switch.

Trun signals intermitently work, checked bulbs wires, fuses, i believe this problem is linked to the hazard lights. Is this posible? where is the hazard relay located?


yes it is linked with the hazard light in a way. when you turn the hazard light on do they seem like they work fine?? if they work good, i would say your need a turn signal flasher, of course the hazards run off of a flasher unit too.. they very from vehicle to vehicle, but most of the time they are under the dash on drivers side... turn your signal on and listen for the clicking, you should find it fairly quickly and easily, that is where your problem most likely is. hope this helps

Constant clicking sound coming from dashboards when you use the turn signals. After turn signal turns off, the clicking sound continues forever. It always sounds like the turn signal is on.


This is a common problem with this, the problem is a bad flasher unit, this is part of the hazard light switch, you will need to replace the hazard switch and this will solve the problem, this was a bad design by gm, i've replaced 30 of these for the same problem or the signals stopped working, this part was on back order at dealer, they might sell them aftermarket (autopart store) and bt now the dealer should stock it, heres a picture of it, hope this helps.johnjohn2.jpg

When the blinker is flipped up or down on the column the tail lights dont respond. But the brake lights and the hazards still work fine. Whats the problem?


The turn signal flasher relay may have a problem.Turn on the hazards and follow the clicking sound to the source and usually the hazard flasher and turn signal flasher are very close to each other.Remove the one that is clicking and put it in place of the turn signal flasher.If the Turn signals then work you will need to purchase a new turn signal flasher relay.They are usually just a few dollars.

My turn signal works intermitantly. It works a


Seems your flasher is going out. If i am correct the switch for your hazard lights is also your flasher. One way to find out is when it stops working tap the hazard light switch and see if it starts to work again. If so there is your problem. Hope this helps

Blinkers in a 1987 chevy camaro not working inside or out. what might the problem be?


Have you checked the signal light flasher?
You have one for the hazard flashers and one for the turn signals.
Try the hazard flashers.
If they work....switch that flasher with the signal flasher....(they should be interchangeable).
Follow the clicking sound to find the hazard (working ) flasher.
(It just pulls out )
To find the non working signal light flasher....just look for another flasher under the dash that looks very much like the hazard flasher.
Now try the signal lights again with the different flasher installed....do they work now?

Turn signals dont work at all


Try your hazard lights. If they work, then it's your turn signal flasher. With your hazards on, listen under the dash for the constant "clicking". Locate the flasher for your hazrads... the turn signal flasher should be near it. Once you find it, just pull it out and replace.

You can use your hazard flasher in place of your turn signal flasher, just swap the two. This will get you to the store to buy a replacement.
