I've heard of this before, either one of the following:
Indicator stalk making constant contact (Vaseline inside the unit making electrical contact)
If it's not them, i'm sure the other guys can give a better hint making me sound like a tard'
cheers mate, Im not sure what your suggesting? to put vaseline on it and where? lol Im interested to hear some more suggestions. I've recently replaced the green and brown sensors on the thermostat housing waiting on the blue sensor to arrive at the moment
No, not put vaseline on it lol, it comes out the factory with a lubricant on it to A: keep it moving smoothly and B: provide good electrical contact. Unfortunately over time the lubricant moves making contact with the other metal parts forming a connection... therefore making the clicky sound and sometimes making the indicator lights come on as Hazards.
All you need to do is take it out of the steering column, prise it apart and clean it making sure the vaseline isn't spread across the two contacts. That should sort it, if not it will be a new stalk jobby!

You'll need to throw money at the car. Not on parts. Just stand near your car and throw loose change at it, I find this increases performance for a short period of time
