I had the same problem and it is a very common one in most Jeep owners. Simply crawl under the dash and disconnect the relay for the turn signals. It is a black box, about 2"x2" mounted under the steering column just to the left. Of course you will need a new one which is not an expensive replacement, and well worth it if you ever want to get rid of that annoying rapid clicking. Also check the wiring in the rest of the instrument panel with a volt meter as other problems can arise when they get wet.

Check the fusebox, it will be a big looking fuse. This will need to be replaced if the turn signal stops "ticking"

Yes - on passenger side of dash with turn signal and emergency flasher relays. Turn on your turn signal or e-flasher and listen for ticking - you'll find it...

Have you checked the flasher fuse. Its in the fuse box by the brake pedal. Its the larger round one, you might have knocked it out of place or it has to be replaced. Check it out. When the flasher is on, you can hear a ticking coming from it.

Normally loose tappets will cause a ticking sound in the engine. Depending on if you have mechanical or hydraulic tappets you may need to have them replaced or simply adjusted.

only way to stop lifters from ticking is to replace the lifter. ticking or noise from lifters is caused by parts being worn most times whenthis happens the nlobe on the cam that the worn lifter is on, is also worn,so you have to decide if it is worth paying for both to be replaced

The ticking could possibly be from a timing key going out. Having mine replaced presently.

70 is little high for the oil pressure. It sounds like their could be some blockage in the oil holes that run to the top of the engine. The ticking could be coming from the lifters or valves not getting enough oil.

the ticking noise is likely the fuel injectors, which you probably didn't notice before because you weren't looking for anything wrong.

It may be the flasher needs replacing. We had to replace ours (it went after the car was off warranty). The dealer told us there was a recall for this for up to 2001 Grand Ams, they said we may be reimbursed later (but I doubt that). If your flasher keeps on ticking, you need to remove the signal control lever and clean the grease which may be contaminated with metal particles and replace with new di-elictric grease - this should solve you ticking problem. If you signal don't work sometimes - there is a recall on this item - you need to replace you flasher control located right above your radio - it's about $28.00 if you want to buy it - Dealer item.

Not that familiar with Jeeps, but you could have a collapsed lifter, or you might have a rocker arm out of adjustment.

No. The word ticking is a verb form, or a noun, or an adjective (ticking clock). But it is not used as an adverb.

If the ticking sounds like a "normal" ticking, it is probably the fuel injectors.

Think you are talking about 'pinking'. Check plug electrode gap is correct, check distributor advance/retard mechanism, reset/retard ignition timing

Typically no. You may have a loud pump....usually indicating it will need to be replaced soon.

The most likely cause of a ticking sound in a motor is a bad timing belt. A valve out of time can also cause a ticking sound.

Please describe where the ticking is coming from, and what you're doing (if anything) when it happens. Please describe where the ticking is coming from, and what you're doing (if anything) when it happens.

I don't think so. Replacing the timing belt is regularly scheduled maintenance. You can find out how often it should be replaced in the owners manual next to changing the oil, air filter, spark plugs, etc... It's replaced about every 50,000 miles or so depending on the car. A ticking noise can come from lots of things - low on oil, etc...

The wrist watch stopped ticking because the battery ran out.

There are many things that rhyme with ticking like clicking, and picking.clicking or picking.

Tick, or ticking, the material used to cover pillows and mattresses, derives from the Greek theke, "receptacle."

Doesnt have one, it is electonically controlled by the BEM and the 'ticking' noise is a buzzer in the dash cluster itself. It has an intergrated circuit located on the circuit board in the instrument cluster. It runs via Cab-bus.

Get your brakes tested. I do not know what a ticking sound means.
