Question about 2003 Chevrolet Malibu
My 03 malibu the turn signal just keeps clicking, even when I am not turning, or after the turn signal is turned off
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:
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. 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.
