Turn signal on at all times?

I replace turn signal and now left front turn signal is always on? not rear? even when turn signal is in off position or right hand turn the left is always on.

Re: Turn signal on at all times?

Sounds like it could be a problem with your 4 way flashers....I have a similar problem where if I just touch the 4 way button, the left signal comes on....I haven't got it fixed yet

Re: Turn signal on at all times?

Roger344 when you say 4 way button? do you mean the flasher? When this happens if I pull up on flasher and turn signal it stops. i know there's a short some where just haven't figured it out yet. Thanks for your reply.

Yes, I was talking about the 4 way flasher button....sounds like we have the same problem....and I recently replaced my turn signal switch in the steering column....for now I just removed the flasher unit for the 4 ways because it would come on while just sitting in the garage.

Sometimes the contacts get so gunked up they actually arc across and make contact when they are not supposed to. Try cleaning them up with wd-40 or brake cleaner and then follow it up with compressed air. The keyboard cleaner in a spray can from an office supply store works best since you can fit the straw nozzle on the can and get way in there.

Well, mine is a brand new signal switch and Kirk said his was just replaced....perhaps there was too much dielectric grease on them from the factory...it's worth a try to clean up everything.Thanks for the idea!

Re: Turn signal on at all times?

It wasn't all that hard but I really can't explain it easily.....I just started tearing the steering column apart until I could take out the switch/wiring harness, then replaced it. I'm not a mechanic, so I think it was pretty self explanatory.
