Last year or the year before I received a recall letter to get my hazard switch replaced which I did.

I am now getting the "clicking" noise as if my turn signals are on exept sometimes the clicking is really fast and intermitent. I took it to my dealer and I was told that this clicking is not due to the recall but was my turn signal flasher which cost about $200 for the part. Is this right?

The faulty clicking could be dangeous becasue a person may think they have their turn signal on because of the sound and in fact they do not have their turn signal turned on.

Thanks for the info...on finding the topic.

Looks like I am out of luck in getting GM to replace this one........Sure seems like a dangerous thing that could cause an accident or a ticket for not signalling when turning........Sounds like GM is hiding from offering a recall on this common annoyance.

I wrote a howto for this random signal clicking problem. Here is the link.

Yeah...I read it...and it is well written however I think I will let the dealer do it. Thanks for you info on the switch as it makes me feel better knowing the "truth" rather than just trusting the dealer. Plus now I know what is involved.

Thank you very much for howto. I have an Alero that had the same problem before to find this site.
Great info!
