I think its the relay. I have just been given a 96 countour with the same problem. Follow the noise under the dash or in the steering column. Be careful working around air bag system or hire the repair. Check out the electrical schematics from a chiltons manual. I wont attempt the repair until i reseach the need for disarming the bags and see if there is anything else on the circuit that would cause the problem. Also, depending on the make/model, it could be within the switch itself. I own a 2001 Pontiac Grand AM, and there is no relay. The ticking happens right at the hazard/turn lamp switch on the dash. That switch could be a costly little piece, though. Mine was $50 CDN, and it still didn't solve the problem. I was told to check all the signal bulbs and try replacing any that aren't working. Sorry I couldn't be of any more help!
Could be a bad turn signal flasher
that would be the car indicator signal! that tells other drivers which direction your turning!
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.
the ticking is the blinkers
Get your brakes tested. I do not know what a ticking sound means.
If the ticking sounds like a "normal" ticking, it is probably the fuel injectors.
turn your blinker of
It means that your clock is working. Also the sound is the seconds hand ticking
I have a 1998 olds cutlass and it is leaking cooling and have a bad ticking sound what do you think I should do.
Sometimes a ticking sound is a valve lifter. The faster you go the faster the ticking will be. Make sure first it is not something stuck in a tire or something on the fan belt.
That slight ticking sound is probably the injectors firing which is normal.
A ticking or clicking sound is probably lifter noise, the valves need adjusting
cv joint problem.
Ticking on acceleration is usually the ignition timing, get it tuned..
The tinking sound if it is a light sound is probably the fuel injectors working which is normal but I would check the oil level and make sure it is full first it could be lifters ticking or clattering.
A blinking red light is the adapter's way of informing you of a low battery.
If it makes the ticking sound and the engine will not crank, then either your battery is dead or the starter solenoid is shot.
you need to adjust the valves
The Ticking in the alligators stomach
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.
it is behind the glove box, open the glove box, push the glove box catch up, and flip the compartment open, your combo relay is a black relay on the right side, that is where your ticking is coming from, bet thing you can try is to replace it. Mine does the same thing The problem is in the turn signal switch.
Its possible that this ticking sound is caused from driving fast for prolong periods. Its possible that its not the engine that is making the sound, but the exhaust system somewhere. I hear a ticking sound if I drive over 140KMh for long periods. It always stops once the car cools. I hopes this helps.
A sound at 15 decibels is not very load. It is equivalent to the sound that watch makes when ticking.
That is possible.
the pullee to any belt could be bent
