Question about 2001 Chevrolet Impala

1 Answer

My emergency hazard flashers work when I press in the button, and when I press the button for them to go off they do, but the clicking sound like they are still on keeps going. What could be causing this? This is on a 2001 chevrolet impala ls. The noise is irritating but it goes off when I turn the key off, and when I turn the key on it starts making the blinking sound without the lights flashing.

SOURCE: 2001 Chevy Impala won't start

If the battery has gone dead, it could cause the security system to go into full lock-up mode. If it has locked up the accessories will work after the battery is charged back up , but the power to the starter will be cut off and it wont turn over. You need to do the 30 minute learn procedure. A GM dealer will print it out for you and you can do it yourself. It's very simple if you follow the procedure exact. hope this helps and good luck.

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: Constant clicking from flasher unit

The flasher unit has gone bad and needs to be changed. The flasher module is a part of the hazard module also. The clicking is the unit is still working but there is not enough voltage to activate the lights to flash. It's common on the Malibu's and other GM product cars similar to the Malibu like Grand Am's Ect. I believe Auto Zone has the replacement part for you car and is more reasonable in price then the dealer and the y also have the step by step instructions to replace the flasher module. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help.

SOURCE: 1997 Chevy Tahoe both turn signals stopped working

Sounds like the flasher unit to me. Normally the emergency flasher and turn signal are separate.

I can't find the turn signal flashers on my 99 Olds delta 88 but I did find the emergency flasher. Does it have one or two flashers because my signal light are not working at all HELP PLEASE!!


One flasher only. Check fuses first. Then suspect the flasher as a possibility. I have seen the hazard switch cause the turn signals to malfunction. Try pressing the hazard button in. If they work and flash as hazards you know the bulbs and flasher are ok. If the turn signals then work you have a defective multifunction switch (the hazard/turn signal/etc switch)

Emergency flasher switch


The Hazard Warning flasher switch is located in the center of the instrument panel above the radio. Press the switch to turn on the Hazard Warning flasher. When the switch is activated, all directional turn signals will flash on and off to warn oncoming traffic of an emergency. Press the switch a second time to turn off the Hazard Warning flasher. This is an emergency warning system and should not be used when the vehicle is in motion. Use it when your vehicle is disabled and is creating a safety hazard for other motorists. When you must leave the vehicle to seek assistance, the Hazard Warning flasher will continue to operate even though the ignition switch is OFF. NOTE: With extended use, the Hazard Warning flasher may wear down your battery. http://cdn.dealereprocess.com/cdn/servicemanuals/chrysler/2010-townandcountry.pdf

What makes running lights flash on and off while making a clicking sound?


Are these your running lights or 4-way emergency flashers? Check that the hazard flasher switch is not activated. Looks like a triangle on a button on the dashboard.

The blinkers only work some of the time. All bulbs are good and the emergency flashers work. I found the flasher for the blinkers, but if it is bad, will the blinkers work some of the time and other times...


you need a signal flasher to correct the problem.flashers will act this way some times when they have an internal problem with the bi-metallic strip that actually completes the circuit and makes the clicking sound.make sure you have found the signal flasher and not the hazard flasher as they look the same.with the hazard flashers on you can see what the signal flasher will look like and it is in the fuse panel.

Good Evening Faith. General motors had problems with thier combination hazard switch. The reason it is called a combination hazard switch is because it is also your turn signal and hazard flasher. On the Oldsmobile Alero, pontiac grand am there was a recall, as far as the impalas and monte carlos I cannot say for certain. Your local parts house (autozone, Advanced, Oreilleys) should have them or be able to order it. That should correct your problem. Hope this helps.

There is a 4-way switch inside your steering column which controls the hazard lights the blinkers. If this switch is faulty your example is one thing that can happen. If the problem worsens you could lose all exterior lighting except the headlights. I had this happen to me one time.
