2002 Malibu: Chevy..V6..ignition key..the hazard relay switch…

Customer Question
I have a Chevy 2002...
I have a Chevy 2002 Malibu with a 3.1L V6. When I turn the ignition key to ON, or while I am driving, the hazard relay switch will rapidly click. It sound like the clicking is coming from underneath where the hazard button is located on the dash. The turn signal lights are not flashing when this happens. Also, the problem goes away when I use the turn signal or turn on the hazard lights. The clicking noise happens only when the turn signals are not in use.

Just recently, the warning chime starts chiming in rhythm with the hazard clicking. I think it's gets worse as the weather gets warmer.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Hello, and welcome. the problem is with the hazard switch. replacing the hazard switch normally corrects this problem.some of these has a special warranty on them from GM. they will cover the replacement of the hazard switch at no cost to you, if your vehicle has less than 150,000 miles. if you are less than this milage, post your vin number and I will see if your vehicle is covered under this warranty?
