Why would a turn signal make a sound even when not turned on?

You may have a bad relay switch; the turn signal works thru the relay switch which is under the steering column; possibly in the dash

Your flasher relay box may need to be replaced, but could also be an electrical short.

Turn signal bulbs and hazard bulbs are the same bulb. When the turn signal is turned on, the indicator light on the dash flashes in tune with the turn signal. When the hazard lights are turned on, an extra fuse which is live, powers the hazard flashers, even if the car is turned off.

Some say the phone needs to be turned on for the signal to be active, but others say as long as the Sim card is in the phone, it can be tracked even if it is not turned on.

I don't know if this is what's going on with your Esteem, but I was getting what sounded like my turn signal was on when it wasn't. I finally realized that the sound was coming from the radio antenna. the antenna would 'waggle' from movement or even just wind and would make a rhythmic clicking sound like a turn signal

The cause for a turn signal flasher to keep clicking on a 1999 GMC Jimmy is a bad flasher unit. Replacing this with a new flasher unit should solve this problem.

Even though the engine isn't running the battery is, that will cause this to happen. But this will only happen if you turn the vehicle off before the turn signal has disengaged. For example if you usually turn on your signal to pull into your driveway and you just leave your the steering wheel turned after you come into the drive way, the signal will still be on because the wheels are turned. So next time straighten your wheels and check

Either there is something else making that sound or a utility malfunction, try to figure out what could be making the noise, if you can't find an answer bring it in to a dealer for further inspection

Yes. I'm afraid you do. The signal still sends and even if their phone is turned off,, the phone collects the data and is on their phone, even if it is switched off!

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.

Most likely one of the cables is loose or broken. On mine the cable came lose inside of the turn signal lever so the module wouldn't get the signal that it had been turned on.

There is no such place in the Czech republic. Not even there is no such place that would even sound the same.

Earth hour is when everyone turns off the lights. Even in different countries the lights are turned off that would not have been turned off on a different day.

Radio signal being an electromagnetic wave does not need even a material medium. It has velocity so incredible which equals to that of light as 300,000 km per second. But sound is a mechanical wave which needs badly a material medium and its speed is just 350 m/s in air and some how higher in solids

if you leave the parking lights switch "ON" the lights will remain on, even if the car has been turned off.

even a single wire can tansmitam signal in which ac signal pass through it

A meteorologist deals with weather, a scientist, a dentist, a doctor or anything like that would deal with cells and a DJ would deal with sound

An antenna is specifically designed to "pick up" electromagnetic waves.These are typically amplified and converted to electronic signals in some sort of circuit. That circuit can then provide a signal to another device to produce output. This happens with a radio when the antenna gets radio waves and they are converted to sound from the radio. Television, when the signal come through the air, is directly analogous but produces sound and a picture.Technically, though we do not usually use the terminology, any electronic signal over a wire is an electromagnetic wave, so even a telegraph produces sound from an electromagnetic wave.
