Question about 2001 Chevrolet Impala
There could be several causes for this problem. The first would be a faulty flasher switch. These switch do fail can be in the off position and still have one contact causing the flasher unit to click.
The second cause could just be a bad flasher unit. The flasher unit is located under the dash near you left knee just above the fuse panel.
If you turn the flashers on you should be able to located it under the dash by sound.
You can simply remove this to see if the clicking stops. But once removed you will not have turn signals. So i would suggest you purchase a new flasher unit, there are inexpensive and always good to have one around.
If after replacing the flasher unit you still have this issue I would test the flasher switch on the dash with a ohm meter or a volt meter to ensure that once it is off you do not have any voltage traveling through the switch. If the switch still has voltage on both sides after turning it off you will need to replace the switch.
It could also be a short, but this is not very likely.

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.
