Question about 2004 Pontiac Grand Am
The fix for this is easy and free. The problem is caused by
contaminated grease which has bridged contacts of the multifunction
switch. This cause a short circuit which cause the hazard flasher to
cycle. You need a #25 torx and a # 10 torx. Remove the 3 #25 torx
screws which hold plastic surrounding the steering column. Remove the
plastic. Remove the 25 torx screw on the top of the multi function
switch. Detatch the wiring connectors. Remove the multifunction switch.
Use the #10 torx to remove all the #10 torx screws. Remove the cover
and clean the grease off the contacts and copper switch plate.You will
notice grease has bridged the some of the slots in switch plate. Clean
it up and regrease. reverse steps to reinstall. Notice the metal peice
protruding from the multi function as it facing you. This is the turn
signal reset switch. When you turn this is what resets the turn signal
when the wheels straighten. This needs to be pushed in so no more than
1/8 " is protruding. If you dont do this before reinstalling your horn
may go off when ever you move the steering wheel after reinstallation.

Sounds like you need a new multifunction switch. Something in the switch is not releasing properly.
