    Relay/flasher may be bad or your turn signal cam/assembly is cracked...

To diagnose: Does the clicking resume to normal when the turn signal or hazrds on? Then:
Multi function switch is damaged.(seems to be common) This unit consists of the two control arms(turn signals and wiper control) on either side of the steering column. It is easily replaced. Cost, app. 200 from GM or 160 aftermarket. GM product is TRW assembled in Mexico. Aftermarket is made in Taiwan. Firstly:

Disconnect battery.

There are 3 #20 Torx screws under the steering column shroud. Remove them and carefully separate shroud and remove. It takes a bit to worm the shroud around the column tilt lever. I didn't check but you may not even have to remove the lower section.

There is 1 #20 torx screw on top holding the MFS in place. It also has 2 guide pins on the bottom. Remove the screw and disconnect the 3 electrical pin connectors. Now remove and replace with new unit. I did notice the steel pin that operates the horn(it pushes in and out and sits against a rotating plate in front of the steering wheel) was a bit rough so I smoothed it out with a small file. Now put everything back in place.

Anyway, that should take care of the clicking. It worked for me.

It is one of two things . the first thing is to change the turn signal flasher, if problem persists then you need a turn signal switch. First one cheep, second is not.

I have 2004 malibu classic my problem is the turn signal is keeps on clicking and clicking

Most of the time the problem is the 4 way flasher switch located in the dash, the signal flasher is part of this switch so replacing the 4 way flasher switch solves the problem.

03 ford f250 7.3 power stroke keeps blowing turn signal fuse.

Electrical issues are always a bit difficult to diagnose. Since I have not heard the wiring harness to be an issue on these, I would first look into if there was some add on causing an issue. Did you or someone add a trailer harness? Some type of additional lighting (like an LED bar)? Even possible a radio or under dash work? If not then do a once over and look at where the wiring comes through the firewall, or through the body to feed the turn signals. You just have to systematically follow the wiring from the lights back to the switch until you find the culprit. Let me know what you find and I can try to assist further.

My 2002 chevy malibu's radio seems to be shorting out, the radio will work fine but randomly the sound shuts off the radio still shows the radio station and even says which artist is playing but there...

I'd suggest using the balance and fade controls to cut out each speaker one by one. to possibly determine if you have shorted speaker or speaker wiring. As far as the turn signal clicking noise, the hazard switch is the actual flasher unit for the turn signals, and could be the culprit, but the most likely cause is the turn signal switch itself. It is usually caused by corrosion across the contacts, which can be cleaned out fairly easily, but more typically, the switch is just replaced

Turn signal keeps clicking randomly Pontiac grand am 2002

This can either be caused by the hazard switch located above the radio or the turn signal /multfunction switch on the steering column.When it is doing this try wiggling the turn signal switch and see if it stops. If it does stop the issue is most likely in the turn signal switch.

Turn signal clicker comes on randomly but doesn't affect lights

No the dash is the hazard light switch, it's also the turn signal flasher, dealer part only replace, replacing it will fix your problem. Feel the switch when you hear the clicking.

2003 Chevy Malibu. While driving down the road turn signal keeps clicking randomly.

what this means that either you have a short in the wire harness going to the turnsignal/dimmer switch assembly . or the switch contacts inside the dimmer switch itself are shorting. this would be a good place to check for the intermitant problem
