SOURCE: Turn signal continues to make the clicking sound

I had the same problem, I found the post quoted below and fixed the problem in about 1 hour without having to replace any parts. Hope this helps!

(I can't seem to get back into the link but had copied the answer - the original link is:

"I had this same problem and fixed it myself. The problem is caused by the contacts rubbing and releasing small particles which conduct small amounts of electricity and cause the flasher relay to click. From a GM Goodwrench mechanic.

Disconnect Battery Before doing this.

You need to remove the turn signal arm from the steering column. This may seem difficult but it really isn't. Separate the top and bottom covers. Find the screws and remove the switch. One is located behind the column and requires some dexterity to get out. I used a Torx bit on a 1/4 box wrench.

The difficult part is separating the switch to clean the contacts. Take your time and you can figure out how to separate the switch. If I remember right, the switch separates and then the emergency signal switch slides out. Also, pay special attention to the way the rotary wiper delay switch is set into the switch.

Once you can see the contacts, clean them off of all lubricant and metal pieces. I would hesitate to use Isopropyl Alcohol for this because off the plastics involved. I just used lots of Q-Tips and a lot of patience.

Finally, get a good Dielectric (non-conducting) lubricant from auto store and cover all contacts with a thin layer. Put the switch back together, reinstall and test.

This took me about four hours to repair. Because I took my time and did not force anything. Once I figured it out it wasn't that hard. The hard part was the rotary delay switch and how it was set into the switch.

I figured if this didn't work, I was going to have to replace the switch anyway, so what the hell. Just make sure your local auto parts store has one of these available if you screw this one up.

Did this about four years ago and problem has not returned since."

SOURCE: my 03 impala wont start up ..wen i turn the key jus clickin noise

The clicking noise is probably the starting solenoid. This means you have some battery voltage and the key switch circuit is working. The problem is either a weak battery, poor battery cable connection, bad starter motor/solenoid, or frozen engine. The voltage at the starter motor needs to be at least 8 volts with the key in the cranking position to turn the engine over. If you have a voltmeter on the dash, watch it while turning the key. Another way to check the voltage is to turn on the headlights. If they dim way down, your battery is weak or the starter motor is shorted or heavily loaded. If the starter motor is shorted or cannot turn because the engine is frozen, the battery cables will get warm. Make sure the engine is not frozen by turning one of the pulleys, or put a socket wrench on the crankshaft pulley bolt. Sometimes the alternator brushes fall out and jam the alternator. This will also stop the engine from turning.

SOURCE: 2003 chevy impala makes clicking noise/smoking thru exhaust

the clicking noise could be eiter a valve or piston. the smoke out of the exhaust means different things depending on the color and how much smoke. Check your air filter and make sure oil is not backing up into it. Also, it may be a good ideal to go ahead and change the oil even though you arent at 3000 miles, unless you just changed it. Change the PCV valve also, if itis clogged it will give you problems. Has the check engine light come on?

SOURCE: Clicking noise in AC/Heater unit. Doesn't do in

the motor that opens the vent is stuck. Put in it fresh air mode. the vent should be on the pass side behind the glove box. Take off the glove box and disconnect the motor and replcae it. Or the cheap way is to not use that mode

Clicking noise in dashboard

More than likely its the blend door motor, they have plastic gears inside, one tooth broke off and when it gets to that spot, starts clicking. The blend door, is behind the glove box. This is a problem with a lot of impalas (GM products ) Good-Day!

Remove glovebox

There should be a tab on either side of the glove box door that is what actually stops the door from opening any further. These can be squeezed inward to allow the glove box door to open fully (make sure to empty it out first or you will have a mess) and allow you to reach the area behind it.

Clicking noise coming from somewhere between the glovebox and firewall on passenger side 2004 pontiac sunfire

Not sure on your model but maybe a relay clicking in and out on top of the heater. That is about all there is there.

Clicking noise under dash near blend door. Removed fan and clicking still there. Is it possible the blend door is causing the clicking. It only starts when temp controls are moved from col to warm.

could be the blend door actuator(motor) when its clicking, disconnect it, if it stops then the motor is bad. If you want to.....if you mostly have it on recirc anyhow, just disconnect it when the door is open.

There is a loud clicking noise coming from behind the glovebox in my 2004 chev cavalier. The clicking happens whether the fan is on or not. However, I can get the clicking to stop if I turn the...

The clicking noise is caused by one of the electric actuator motors that opens and closes the airflow doors withing the AC/heater ducting, more than likely the door is sticking and this causes the motor gear drive to slip as the tiny Nylon gears slip by each other and you hear a click. As far as the cost goes I haven't worked on this particular model yet but likely the dash must be removed to service the problem parts, about $800.00 would be a ball park estimate. Contact your local GM dealer for a repair estimate.

Clicking noise under the glovebox

It may be a relay clicking. You can test the relay with an ohmmeter or multi-tester. Have you noticed any components not working?
