Question about Pontiac Grand Am

There is a ticking noise coming from the radio/dashboard. it sounds like the turn signal is on but its not. some days it doesn't happen at all and other days it doesn't stop. Also, when my car is running i can her a faint zzzzzzzzzzzz sound which sounds like its coming from the front tires. any idea how to fix either of these issues?

    is that wheel bearing related to the wheel speed sensor? how much does this cost to repair? can i do it myself? can i fix the ticking noise myself?

The zzzzzz sound has to be a worn wheel bearing which is incorporated along with the hub assembly
The noise in the dash is caused by a faulty directional switch inside the steering coluum
You can double check with any general motors dealerships service department on that for it is a notorious problem with these cars back then. I have heard many with this noise and it took years to firgure this problem out

Signal lights work but stop aftrt a few blinks

You need to replace your flasher cam, to find this you need to turn your indicators on then look around under the dashboard for the thing making the tick tick noise, this is your flasher cam.

There is a ticking noise everytime my car is on that sounds like the turn signal noise but theres no pattern or order to the ticking. i thought the hazard switch was bad, what could the ticking noise be?

It could be a relay clicking under the dash due to a bad ground circuit somewhere in the vehicle. It would be best to have a professional put an ear to it.

I have a ticking noice coming from inside the dashboard of my 2004 A6 near the hazzard/esp buttons, its sounds like a relay switch and is driving me nuts

well it sounds like a bad connection with the relay its most likely for your turn signals. if your turn signals stop working (does not flash) just give the dash a (slight) tap.

Malibu 2006 LT. The Left Front and Right Tail Turn Signal Lamps don't blink, the light just stay on but not blinking, check bulb ok. What could be the problem here? Thanks.

The other turn signal bulbs are blown, or the turn signal unit itself is bad. it is under the dashboard and makes the ticking noise when the turn signal is on.

I would think it would be your flasher switch. The one under your dash that makes the ticking sound. Just unplug it and replace it.

Blinker Signal

The noise maker is stuck on, not the lights or arrow signals. So even when the signal is turned off, the noise maker is still activated.

Check that all bulbs are working, if one of the indicators light is gone it will tick faster.

When this happens usually you have to replace the indicator light relay, you find it in the fuse box.

if it's a top end tick from the engine. probably because oil ran down and it just needs to lubricate the head again.
