Question about 2001 Ford Focus
Everything goes through the Turn signal stalk. You may be able to remove the plastic cover from the steering column. Sometimes the Ignition switch will prevent removal of the cover and it must be removed. If you can get enough clearance around the plastic cover you can see the mounting screws for the Turn stalk.
The stalk comes out of a box like shaped unit and has 2 or more female Torx screws. If there is a lot of play where the screws hold the box in place, your moving parts may be skipping over the slot needed to turn off your blinkers. All that may be needed is to tighten the mounting screws so the parts are tightly held together.
If the tab that stops the blinkers is broken off, you will need to replace the tab. If the tab is part of the stalk you will need the entire Turn signal assembly. This is called a MPS multi position switch and can range from $35 to $80.
You may find one cheaper in a Salvage yard, but they are available as aftermarket parts from Auto parts stores.
