1997 c1500 4.3L after I signal and make a turn my signal light lever clicks off like it should but quite often it will continue to make the clicking noise even though the lights are not coming on. It will click even when I am not touching the signal lever and stop and start and stop and start ..... quite annoying. Not sure where to start.....

This sounds like your turn signal relay is sticking. If it is sticking it does not matter the position of your turn signal arm. Check the relay. It will be in your fuse box under the hood.

I had the same problem, I found the post quoted below and fixed the problem in about 1 hour without having to replace any parts. Hope this helps!

(I can't seem to get back into the link but had copied the answer - the original link is: http://www.allaboutauto.us/2007/04/07/1999_chevrolet_blazer_turn_signal_clicking_noise.html)

"I had this same problem and fixed it myself. The problem is caused by the contacts rubbing and releasing small particles which conduct small amounts of electricity and cause the flasher relay to click. From a GM Goodwrench mechanic.

Disconnect Battery Before doing this.

You need to remove the turn signal arm from the steering column. This may seem difficult but it really isn't. Separate the top and bottom covers. Find the screws and remove the switch. One is located behind the column and requires some dexterity to get out. I used a Torx bit on a 1/4 box wrench.

The difficult part is separating the switch to clean the contacts. Take your time and you can figure out how to separate the switch. If I remember right, the switch separates and then the emergency signal switch slides out. Also, pay special attention to the way the rotary wiper delay switch is set into the switch.

Once you can see the contacts, clean them off of all lubricant and metal pieces. I would hesitate to use Isopropyl Alcohol for this because off the plastics involved. I just used lots of Q-Tips and a lot of patience.

Finally, get a good Dielectric (non-conducting) lubricant from auto store and cover all contacts with a thin layer. Put the switch back together, reinstall and test.

This took me about four hours to repair. Because I took my time and did not force anything. Once I figured it out it wasn't that hard. The hard part was the rotary delay switch and how it was set into the switch.

I figured if this didn't work, I was going to have to replace the switch anyway, so what the hell. Just make sure your local auto parts store has one of these available if you screw this one up.

Did this about four years ago and problem has not returned since."

Turn lights blink with hazards but not with turn signal..flasher replaced. is It the multifunction lever then??


There should be a turn signal flasher and a hazard flasher. They are two different parts. If you replaced the hazard flasher and not the turn signal flasher than I would start by replacing the turn signal flasher.

One thing you can do once you find the turn signal flasher is to unplug it and use a jumper wire between the two pins of the connector then turn the key to the run position and place the turn signal lever in the left or right position. If the turn signal lights know light up than the turn signal flasher is the problem

Turn signal flasher location 2003 suzuki XL-7


the FSM book covers this.
as does alldata.com, (USA cars)
checked fuses yet?
turn/back fuse.
feeds the.:
turnback relay & answer back relay (module)
a digital switch in the lever (combo) it just sends ground logic
level to the module.
so sound to me to be
one light is shorted. (or trailer wire hacks) "visual inspections!,"
or the module is bad.
if both sides are bad, seems bad module to me,
if all lights blink fully bright on hazard the lights should be good.

the module is just under the steering wheel , under those
plastic covers, the books shows simple access. to the combo
my book dont show module location
i use a rubber hose to my ear to find any relay, clicks.
if you find hazard click , (assuming it does) then same place
is the turn sigs.
its not in the fuse box, cab , i looked.


hope that helps.

alldata.com
has it.

Reverse light are operated by the range selector switch on the side of transmission aka. gear selector lever. A problem with the t/s lights would be in the turn signal combo switch.

1997 Chevrolet Lumina : upper brakelight (window) works, lower brakelights don't work. Changed bulbs and fuse-no go. Most logical theory so far is that they are on seperate circuits, the lower lights run...


Will your Center High-Mount Stop Light (CHMSL) illuminate when you depress the brake pedal, but the lower/outer lights will not?
-- Do you have to hold the signal lever in a certain spot to get the turn signals to flash?
-- Do you have to hold the signal lever in a certain spot to get the lower/outer brake lights to illuminate?
-- Will the signals work in one direction, but not the other?
If you answered yes to any of the preceeding questions, your turn signal switch is likely malfunctioning.

**One more question before we continue: Is the turn signal lever not "cancelling" (returning to the "off" position) after you make a turn? If this is the case, you have a broken "cancelling spring."


Before you begin disassembly of your steering column, verify the turn signal flasher is not malfunctioning. If your brake lights work fine, but not the signals (either direction,) then it's likely the flasher is burnt out. The flasher itself is located underneath the dash near where the steering column passes through the firewall

Turn signals and back up lights dont work, bulbs and fuses good. Blinker lights only work in dash when emergency flashers are on.


Test the circuit board wires on the back side of your taillights where the bulbs go in to see if power is going there with the blinker on, if yes replace the circuit board (quite common with these trucks). If there is no power back there check your flasher relays for each turn signal, assuming they dont click off and on when you tip the turn lever. if all else fails, head for the multifunction switch behind your steering wheel inside the column that your turn signal/wiper/cruise control lever is connected to.

First check the fuse in the fuse box. It also sounds like you may have a wire in the column that is shorting out. you may have to replace the turn lever.
