Question about 2002 Mitsubishi Montero Sport
My turn signal switch will not turn off. It keeps blinking right. It is stuck in the right turn signal mode. HELP!!!
I have the same problem in my 1998 Montero and was surprised to see your posting. I just went to an auto electric expert and diagnosed it as a broken turn signal switch that needs to be replaced.

Just fixed this problem myself. I'm to cheap to buy a new signal switch soI took mine apart to figure out why it wasn't working. First I checked all bulbs, fuses, and the relay of course. So first I pulled out the entire switch assembly, surprise surprise the blinker turned off. Next I unscrewed the cover holding the actual lever in and pulled it out, be careful and go slow when you do this there is a spring that will pop out of place and some small part as well that are a real pain to put back together if you didn't see how it was put together originally. Now here's where the problem was. On the lower corner of the lever assembly a small plastic peg that fits into a slot just in front of where the plug is for the blinkers, there are three plugs on the back one for headlights, one for blinkers and the other is for dash indicator lights i assume. Well this peg broke off some how and so when i turned the blinker lever it wasn't actually moving the switch from one position to the other. Lucky for me the piece was still jammed in there. Next i turned the aasembly over so the white part where the plugs are was facing straight up. I then carefully pried the white part with the plugs off of the black lever housing. Again be careful because there is another spring and a lot of tiny parts, if you pry the white part up and leave th black part facing down you'll avoid the peices falling out, and only have the spring to deal with. Once i had the white part out I was able to retrieve the broken piece, if your lucky you'll be able to get the broken peice out with out have to seperate the white and black pieces. I used to krazy glue to glue the piece back on to the lever exactly as it had been. I suggest krazy glue because it doesn't take much and bonds the pieces together like it had never been broken and dries super quick. Once you glue the piece back on and it dries completely put everything back together and test it out. It worked great for me.

I copied Keevo123's solution and it worked out perfect for me. So happy to have saved $100.00 or so on a new one. The only advise I can add is do not use gorilla glue, it will not hold. As soon as I used regular good old fashioned super glue from the dollar store it worked perfectly. Thanks for the advise Keevo123.
