Question about 1999 Chrysler Sebring

2 Answers

Hello Experts, Blinker won't turn off in my '99 Sebring! The blinker arm is in the middle (neutral) position but the right blinker continues to blink. I've pulled the fuse and then put it back but it continues to blink. Any suggestions?

Sounds like you need a new multifunction switch. Something in the switch is not releasing properly.

    yes the turn and multifunction are the same switch, it does more than just operate turn signals, hence multifunction.

There is a short or something is broken in the multifunction switch (headlight/turn signal switch). It will most likely need to be replaced.

Turn signal stays on


On a steering wheel are 2 pins. These pins turn the signals off as the wheel returns from making a left or right hand turn. They reset the blinker mechanism by bumping the blinker arm and pushing the arm back to the center position. You can sometimes see these little pins that reset the blinker if you look between the steering wheel and the steering wheel column. There is a little gap where the steering wheel is enabled to turn with out rubbing the column. You will also see a circular copper plate in there where the horn makes electrical contact by a little flat tension arm and rubs the copper surface as the wheel spins in either direction.
To repair a damage blinker pin, the steering wheel most likely has to be pulled off and the pin repaired and steering wheel returned back onto the column. Not a big job at all, just more of a pain then anything. Some steering wheels are on pretty tight on their splines and a puller may be needed. If the pins are still intact in the back of the steering wheel, then the blinker mechanism has a problem and is not be triggered to return to center by the pins.

Blinker issues


These are two seperate issues:

the light staying on solid green indicates a bulb blown at either the front or rear, this could also be a bad ground connection but usually is a bulb issue. If you replace the bulb, be sure to use bulb grease to seal our moisture.

As far as the signal arm returning to neutral and cancelling the signal, that is controlled by a part within the steering wheel itself, and could just be worn. It's a Plastic/Nylon piece that pushes the signal arm manually when you turn the steering wheel sufficiently. That would be a dealer part, or something purchased from a salvage vehicle.

good luck

You'll have to replace the blinker arm assembly. I had the same issue with my '99 GT. It turned out that a couple of the electrical traces had arced and fused together. You might be able to fix it yourself if you're electricly inclined. Otherwise it's only a couple of screws to pull off the top cover and then another for the blinker/wiper arm assembly.
