    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.

My signal give clicking even when it is not on,it signals when click it right or left,but when it return to neutral it start clicking n faster.


The most common cause of this is a bad turn signal switch. The switch is grounding the supply wire from the flasher which makes the flasher think the switch is in a turn position. Since there is very little load on the grounded circuit the flasher "clicks" faster.

A new turn signal multi function switch will usually fix this problem.

2007 chevy malibu turn signal arm needs to be adjusted.


Probably a flaw with the original design. That's why it didn't last very long. Get the mounting bracket and order the switch online.

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.

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

Turn signals sometimes don't work


Change the flasher to an electronic unit. They are far less likely to give you trouble.
