Turn Signal Question

Should a 2008 Equinox make an audible ticking noise along with the indicator arrows on the dash when signaling a turn? I thought mine did but noticed today it isn't doing it.

Thanks,
Mike

I have the same problem with my 2007 along with lots of other issues. I think some are PCM related shuttering,radio power/dash light,(faulty wiper relay problem unrelated to pcm. I have taken it to GM and they will not replace the pcm because they have no proof because it only happens every 3 months and there is no codes and they cant get it to repeat the problem. I have had service trac light come on with a code for the EGR. They wanted to change it and I told thim they were crazy and I was right. It never gave the code again. It would have been a waste of money replacing it $275.00. My Equinox now has 65,000 miles on it and I am not happy with the issues, but I like the vehicle. If someone has had the same issues please shoot my in the right direction.

I have a 2007 Equinox (68000k) which I totally love. I've had a few issues here and there, mostly with electrical things failing, but one thing they cannot figure out is the intermittent "non-clicking" of the turn signal. They have checked several times, I mention it every time I go in, but nothing found. To me it seems to be a water issue, when it rains or water on the road, the clicker goes silent, then later in the day it will work. They told me next time it happens; drive it in so they can see/hear it for themselves. I would say it happens at least once a week.
The newest issue is paint chipping and peeling from the inside of rear wheel wells. So much so that it is chipping up into the body and visible. The GM body shop is checking with head office to see if it is under warranty, but they told me probably not. I am arming myself with info as I believe this is a defect and not normal wear and tear.
what now

Did anyone ever figure out any of the problems?? I have just let the problems come and go...The vehicle has never stalled me on the side of the road yet, but I do believe it is something getting wet that causes some these problems..My wife tells me the turn signal problem has done it under dry conditions.
