I can hear something click/tick in the gear shifter when I apply the brake while in park. Why? Also I can hear the turn signal shutoff click when I steer even when the turn signal isn't on. I have drove the car for a month now and none of this was happening until today.

Do you
have the same problem?

Interlock solenoid may be the clicking in the shifter.

Someting in the turn signal switch is making noise.

Get these checked a t a shop to confirm

Dont even know if I am right. You must remove the steering whell for the turn signals and investigate. You must remove the floor shifter console for the other issue to investigate.

Good luck
