You have to check the wiring of your signal lights. Start
at the signal light switch mounted at the steering column. Then, at the fusebox for shorted or melted terminal. Finally, at the signal light sockets, by taking off the signal light lens.

Why signal light wont turn off in 94 325i BMW

Do you mean it won't automatically switch off after you turn, or do you mean it stays on, either flashing or just permanently on?

If it's the 1st one "doesn't automatically switch off after turning" it sounds like your turn signal stalk is broken & needs replacing.

If it's a case of the light just continuing to flash or stay on well then it could still be your signal stalk or the relay which times the lights to flash on & off.

Brake lights stay on even if i pull fuse or take off brake light switch

Sounds like the turn signal switch is bad, since the brake light circuit is routed through the turn switch.

I have a 2002 Volvo v70, 2.4t . The signal light on the right side stay on at all the time

I would think it is a short in the turn signal switch but I wonder how it is getting power with the key switch off.
I would unplug the switch and see if the lights go off. Could also be a short in the hazard switch.

My left turning light gets stuck just stays on even though you turn left and go back but my right turning light works fine

The turn signals are designed to tell you when a bulb burns out. Turn your signal light on and walk around the vehicle to check if the outside signal lights are working. Sounds like you have both front and rear bulbs burnt out for the left.

My 1998 ford explorer- the dash board turn signal lights stay on when the lights are turned on. also the engine temp gauge does not move even though the car does warm up. Any suggestions

The easiest thing to do is turn your emergency flashers on and off about 5 or ten times and see if it fixes it (sounds stupid but sometimes it works)Have you replaced any bulbs lately? I would check your turn signal bulbs to see if any filiments are shorted together. If you have trailer hitch wiring I would check for water in the connector and if it is not a factory wiring setup then I would completely disconnect it to see if it isn't feeding park lamp voltage back thru the turn signals.
Hope this helps
