A couple of electrical issues

I have a 1985 BMW 325e and I am having problems with the heater and my left turn signal.

My heater blows air, but sometimes makes a weird grinding noise. The higher the settings, the louder the sound.

My left turn signal is acting up. When I use it, it sometimes woks. When it doesn't work it makes a really fast clicking sound. Even when it does work, my brights decide to turn on randomly. The right works normally.

Heater wise, thats probably the fan bearing wearing out.

Check your fuses for the turn signal. A bulb may be loose or burned out as a fast clicking is usually indicative of an incomplete circuit.
