Why is there a sporadic clicking sound coming from my dashboard while driving even when the turn signal/blinkers are off?

I drive a 2005 Chevy Malibu. It seems to be coming from the button that you push to turn on the blinkers possibly (but when they're off). It's like clicka clicka, pause, clicka clicka clicka etc. Sometimes slowly, sometimes fast and sometimes not at all. Thanks!

I have the absolute same problem in my 2001 Lincoln Town Car.At times it will not do it for months then suddenly it does it all day everyday.We had it to the dealership and they gave me some cockamamie BS about it costing thousands to repair it because it was a defect in a computer chip!My husband took it in and they told him it was a delay switch???

If the noise happens when turning it is not from the dash.

Sorry it took me so long to answer but yes it is the same sound as when the signal lights are on only more sporadic. Thanks for your answer! Maybe it is the relay on my car also. :-)

I figured out what was going on with my blazer. The alternator was bad, when I changed it the clicking stoped. I was going to buy a Grand Am, I think it was a 1998, it done the same thing that your car is doing, but there was a boat load of problems with that car. Anyways, I hope you gets your car fixed, good luck :-)

I have an '04 Pontiac Grand Am
Same problem!
Replaced the flasher (relay) still does it. No signal lights flashing when it's clicking away!
Turn signals and 4way's work fine.
Arrrg!!!!
