In order to repair the lever you must replace the turn signal switch, this requires the **** shell covers on the steering column to be removed, they are held on by 4 screws recessed in holes, then the switch is bolted to the steering column tube by two machine screws, do not break the wire connectors to the switch, remove them carefully. Always disconnect the battery negative cable before working on the steering column

Turn signals and high beams


First check around all the lights (front, rear, headlight, turn signal, parking, fog, etc..) for loose, broken, or bare wires, and/or loose , broken, or bad connectors. Any of these could cause the lighting to short. If everything is in good working order, then the problem will most likely lie with switch inside the column (the lever).

Problem with right turn signal lever not resetting and turning off right signal after turning corner


You will probably need to remove the steering wheel which means disconnecting the air bag. Not recommended for owners without experience.
There is a ring around the shaft that pushes the switch arm back to center that is probably broken.
