my 1990 celica gts randomly starts all front amber lights and tail lights flash and their is a constant clicking from under the dash and it is killing my brand new battery, so i have to leave it unhooked, any ideas ?? i thought it was the security switch on the dash so i eliminated that but it still does it.

Try unplugging the relay for it. Sounds like that relay is flippin' out and is flashing your hazard lights.

It could be your parking light circuit as well. There's a short or bad relay somewhere.

Why don't you hook up the battery and let it start clicking, then hunt down the problem relay by ear and go from there?
