I had a similar problem. I finely took the car to the dealer to be diagnose. The problem ended up an internal short in the turn switch module. This switch controls the wipers and turn switch, lights and the brakes go through there too. I went in to the garage with the mech and he showed the module. I found the module on line for between $39.00 and $127.00. I bought one for $48.00 delivered. It took me less than an hour to change it out. Three screws in the lower column cover and then two screws holding the turn signal module in place. There are two connections that just plug in the module. The clicking in mine is gone. It would have cost 318.00 dollars to have the dealer replace it.
