Question about 1993 Plymouth Colt Vista

1994 Plymouth Colt Vista, left turn signal does not stop flashing

Left turn signal keeps flashing even though column switch returned to center. And when put to right turn the switch is still flashing for left turn.
I'm using my Chrysler Corporation Colt Vista shop manual, the Electrical volume which is separate, begins page 8-218 and 8-219 to try to diagnose.
From this info I'm thinking to replace "Turn Signal and Hazard Flasher Unit". This is the replaceable plug-in unit located just behind interior drivers side fuse block. Perhaps least cost to replace and easiest to try?
Or, do you think it is more likely to be the steering column mounted "Column Switch"? But can I also somehow set off the air bag trying to access this?
Thanks for any help. Please see email address below, or my phone is 330-774-2264, my name is Mike.

Turn signal switch repair

The steering column wheel has 2 pins pushed into the back side of it and as you turn the steering wheel making a turn, the pins slide over the humps of the blinker signal. As you return the wheel back to center to drive straight, these pins then hit the humps in the turn signal and push the turn signal back to the original position. It sounds like one of these pins fell out or broke off. You need to pull steering wheel and check to see if these pins are still inserted on the back side of the steering wheel.

2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue - Turn Indicator Problem. So I have a "quick flash" on the instrument cluster for the left turn signal. I've replaced the bulbs, checked the contacts, checked the main...

While a fast flash usually indicates a burned out bulb, you've obviously covered these bases. Your next step should be to check the turn signal solenoid, also called a turn signal "flasher", as these ususally cost between $6 and $12. If that doesn't fix your problem, you may be looking at a new turn signal switch (that's what they're called, even though they control the headlights, too.) Just make sure you exhaust all other options, as these cost around $270.

Signal lights not working

The way to check if you need a flasher is to turn on your 4-ways (emergency flashers), if you have emergency -- shut that off and then try both turn signals. I had a flash on my right (OK); The left had lights on both front and rear with no FLASH, which meant that the 2way flasher was not function.

I was told to turn my 4-ways on and it would help me locate my 2way ------ NOT So. I bent, twisted, readjusted and thought some ugly words, but it wasn't so bad once I found it (even though I disasembled almost all the bottom panels of the dash) so here's my version:

I just replaced my 2 way flasher: it was to the right of the steering column and was tucked up high and Clipped in the approximate vicinity where your right kneecap would be as you drive, behind the dash panel. Look for a silver flasher, the one I replaced it with was yellow. My 4-way I Heard on the left side of the column.

Best to you, it wasn't much fun not being able to see, not knowing what I was doing, and not being a young person anymore! But the ol' gal got it done, NOW THE COPS won't be following me for that anymore!!! ...................leathers

Left turn signal does not blink properly.

More than likely it is going to be your clock spring behind the steering wheel.
