Question about 1997 Buick LeSabre
My left turn signal stays on and won't automatically turn off when the turn is completed. And my right turn signal turns off almost immediately when the wheel is turned, so I have to move the lever again so that the signal is on during the turn. What could be causing this and how is it fixed?
Yes ,the plastic cancel peg on the left is broken ,right is close
to breaking also,only fix is a new turn signal switch,sorry.
should be about a 60.00 job ,plus the switch .another 60.00or so.

REplacing of the turn signal switch invoves the removal of the air bag and steering wheel for acess to the switch ( reminder to unplug the yellow connector for the air bag under dash first).

Back in the late 80's early 90's GM's turn signal switch in would get loose afetr some use and one side or the other turnsignals wouldn't flash or only the third bake light worked and/ or you couldn't flip your headlights to high beams and have them stay on without holding the turn signal arm back. Perhaps if turnining the bulb over as Mr. Scary suggested proves fruitless. and you may explore that option. Get an assistant and have him watch your blinkers tailights etc. and turn your blinker on and push the blinker arm firmly toward the dash and see if that resolves your problem.

there is either a short in the 4 way flasher switch or the turn signal switch. Actually quite common in GM vehicles. The switches will need to be replaced. Also replace flashers which are attached to fuse block and make sure all bulbs are new and same age.
