Like the topic says. Weird clicking noise comming from the center of my car. Sounds exactly like the turn signal click but it goes like click click slow slow blah blah 123123123123123mph then slow ect...and my turn signal doesnt go off it just clicks alot...i dunno what it is, my mechanic things it might be some sort of relay. It only happened since i installed my angeleyes. did a search too didnt see anything..

It's your turn signal stalk. About $75 from gmpartsdirect.com If you want part number and such search. This has been discussed hundreds of times.

same thing happens in my car, my dad is a mechanic and he says its something with the switch for the turn signal not working correctly. Also does your turn signal sometimes not turn off on its own?

No need to buy a new stalk.There is a simple fix regarding cleaning the contacs.Do a search.

Check the howto section. Look for Howto: Cleaning the Multifunction Switch.

This problem happens because the steering column circuitry is not sealed. Dust eventually gets into the contacts and enough builds up to disrupt the circuitry and cause the random clicking to occur.

Very anoying, but easy to fix.
