Remove the front turn signal bulb for the left side. There is a plastic lever if you look closely, push down the plastic lever and push forward and the lamp housing will come out.

Note: the plastic is very brittle and may break if not done carefully. Depending on the size of your hands the bulb socket can be removed in the car by turning the bulb socket base 45 deg. counter clockwise (if I remember right). Turn it one way and if it won't move turn it the other way.

With the socket unplugged start the car and see if the turn signal light on the dash is still stuck on. With any luck it will be off...

If the light is still on then there is a shorted wire somewhere in the system. If the light is off then we're on the right track.

Once you get the socket out remove and inspect the bottom side of the bulb. It should have two aluminum contacts on its base, if they are mushroomed and touching each other replace the bulb and recheck.

If the bulb is ok then replace the bulb holder. They sometimes short internally.

I hope this helps.

SOUNDS LIKE YOU EITHER HAVE A BAD T-SIGNAL FLASHER,& OR SWITCH, OR A BAD HAZZARD SWITCH,& OR FLASHER,YOU MAY WANT TO CHECK ALL OF YOUR T-SIGNAL BULBS ALSO, JUST TO SEE IF YOU MAY HAVE A BAD BULBS, IT ALSO COULD BE A BAD GROUND ON ONE OF THE T-SIGNAL BULB SOCKETS.
