that could have two flashers one for the turn signals and one for the hazards lights.if you turn the hazard lights on and the flasher you located, you should feel it click as the lights flash.if it does it could possibly have another one for turn signals. sometimes it is a square relay in the fuse panel. and could be a problem with the turn signal switch this is the same as a isuzu npr.
The click you hear is the horn relay -- this likely has either dirty / corroded connections or burned contacts inside the relay. If cleaning all relevant connections doesn't solve the problem, replace the relay. You can find the realy by having someone push the horn button while you track down the click.
I have a 1998 GMC Jimmy SLT with same exact problem. I just determined exactly what it is today.
Here is what you should do:
1) Open glove box
2) Notice the u-shape mechanism that prevents the glove box from folding all the way down. (located near top left corner of OPEN glove box
3) Empty contents of glove box and then push up on U-shape and open glove box so that it hangs freely
4) Notice the wiring harness with a bolt in middle of it (located behind glove box)
5) To the right of the wiring harness is a small black box with a zip tie over it. This is the source of your problem. Just slide the zip tie to the right so that the box can then be pulled out.
This is your combination flasher for turn and hazard signals. My signals still worked while this annoying little thing kept clicking. The model # is GM11516051. You can find one on e-bay for at least 1/2 the price of the dealer's.
You can try this==== take a screw driver and tap on the relay switch with the handle while somebody is turning the ignition. This is only a test, not a definate solution. If you haven't already, check the starter solonoid. My opinion, if the ignition was bad, it wouldn't even click at the relay, but without testing it's hard to say.
