Default turn signal stays on

Hello,

I hope somone can help me trouble shoot this. Me left turn signal is staying blinking even though the lever is in neutral. When i try to move the lever for the right turn it still stays on lefft. Hazards work fine and everything else on the lever ie lights highbeam works. 97 mirage 1.8.

Thanks

I would say you have a bad multifunction switch,the contacts in the switch are probably worn.

I have the same problem with my 2002 Mirage. I just took out the fuse. It's been like a month and still can't find a switch. If you find one let me know where please. Thanks!

yes if the switch broke, you have to replace it.

The old fashioned way! besides, here in New Mexico the law on turn signals is "turn signals need to be used only when it affects other traffic" so I just hope I don't get pulled over when traffic is busy!

Stupid question- How do you know if it's broken? I mean, my switch still goes in the up, mid, down postion. it's just the signal stays on no matter what position its in. Ok, maybe this is how you know its broken, right! told you-stupid question!

If you pull the switch out you can ohm the different positions and see if there is any continuity. If there isnt any continuity then the switch isnt making contact and its bad.
