Found this direct quote from another person experiencing the same "turn signal noise" that seems to be infamous with the grand am. Now depending on your car model the location of this box might be different but now that you know what you are looking for maybe it will help you.

"The fix for this is easy and free. The problem is caused by contaminated grease which has bridged contacts of the multifunction switch. This cause a short circuit which cause the hazard flasher to cycle. You need a #25 torx and a # 10 torx. Remove the 3 #25 torx screws which hold plastic surrounding the steering column. Remove the plastic. Remove the 25 torx screw on the top of the multi function switch. Detatch the wiring connectors. Remove the multifunction switch. Use the #10 torx to remove all the #10 torx screws. Remove the cover and clean the grease off the contacts and copper switch plate.You will notice grease has bridged the some of the slots in switch plate. Clean it up and regrease. reverse steps to reinstall. Notice the metal peice protruding from the multi function as it facing you. This is the turn signal reset switch. When you turn this is what resets the turn signal when the wheels straighten. This needs to be pushed in so no more than 1/8 " is protruding. If you don't do this before reinstalling your horn may go off when ever you move the steering wheel after reinstallation. This whole job should take 20- 45 minutes based on your mechanical apptitude."

Flasher is under the dash, drivers side, follow the clicking sound the signal makes when turned on. That sound comes from the flasher. If signal is staying on it could be you have a bulb or two out. Check your signal lights before replacing the flasher.

Why does my 1999 Lincoln Town Car make a clicking sound like the turn signal lamps that is coming from under the dash randomly when the ignition switch is on or the car running?

google "multifunction switch" -- basically, it's a buildup of grease in the housing of your turn signal stalk which activates the circuit and makes that clicking sound even when the signal is off. The fix-it solution is to open the housing and clean the grease off the contacts.

How do you fix a turn signal indicator that no longer makes the clicking sound on a 2005 Chrysler Town and Country?

Sounds like you need a new flasher unit. Take it to your dealer. You should have a warranty on it. I guess you need to be more clear. Is it not clicking when it flashes or doesn't it click when you move the lever? If it's not clicking when it's flashing you need to get a flasher and install it down in the fuse block.

Y when i put the 2002 cavalier into drive it makes a clicking noise in the fusebox and the light with the wrinch comes on?

I have a used '02 Cavalier. I finally figured out that the previous owner disengaged the automatic running lights. If I manually turn on the headlights when I start up, before the clicking sound stops, that little wrench light doesn't come on. If you turn on the headlights after the clicking, then you're stuck looking at the light. Hope that helps. The clicking is the computer registering a problem, the wrench on the dash is Service Vehicle. This goes hand in hand with the BCM, body contol module which monitors your lights, brake lights, headlights, etc. Check all of your bulbs and i can guarantee one is out.

What makes the blinker sound when blinker is activated?

The turn signal flasher is what makes the noise and lets the turn signal flash.
