Turn Signals and Hazard Lights

What is the ticking sound from the turn signal after you have made a turn and the signal is no longer blinking?

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!

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.

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