Question about 1998 Toyota Camry

1998 xle v6 camry - signal lights freezes at times. Right or left or emergency, they freezes at times. The signal light freezes, does not blink, just stays on. So I have to do the signal again. Usually it works the second time, but sometimes it does not. What is seems to be the problem with this. If my signal lights does not work properly, it could be dangerous to the vehicle behind especially if you want to switch lanes.

Sorry but it took me a lot of time before having it fixed. Well, I think the problem started with the turn signal switch. It used to make a noise. Something like "ZZZZZZTT" whether you're turning right or left. So I had them replaced for CN$300, including the labor. The actual problem is the "blinker". It's been damaged. To replace it will cost you about CN$100 just for the part. You can replace it by yourself.
I am not really a mechanic but it looks like what happened was the turn signal switch has damaged the blinker since it was not sending the right signal to it everytime it is activated.... Is it?

These functions are all controlled by the turn signal switch, also known as the multifunction switch, this is a common issue you have and will require you replace the switch.
