2006 lincoln zephyr - driver side turn signal stays on (even with car off), passenger blinks once then stops. back signal lights blinks fast.

Have the turn signal stalk changed. It appears to be worn out. When the lighs are off and the key is off or out, there should be no power to a healthy switch.

turning the steering wheel alters the sound indicates that the load on the wheel bearing changes with a change of direction
Also have the power steering pump checked as the noise could be pressure changes as you move the steering wheel

Indicator won't stop flashing

What type of vehicle are you talking about? And does the opposite side operate correctly? What are you referring to when you say stalk returns to off position? If you are talking about the directionals or turn signals of this vehicle as to when you make either a left or right turn and it not shutting off when the steering wheel is turned back after the turn has been made then you're dealing with a canceling function within the directional or multi-function switch.Not sure if this is what you're talking about when you are reffering to indicator flashing.

How do i change my signal switch in my 1993 mazda 929

Hi Shannon, befor you dive in and replace the indicator switch I would suggest you check the flasher unit. To replace the indicator switch you will need to remove the steering wheel (this usually means using a puller) Don't forget to punch match marks on the steering wheel and the column which must be aligned when assembling. Remove the steering wheel center cover. then the covers on the steering column Removed the screws (usually four) holding the stalk switch. don't forget to disconnect the battery and the wiring connection to the stalk switch. After replacing the assembly is dismantling. Regards John

Hi, I replaced the high beam bulbs but the lights still aren't working

could be a fuse, a relay or possibly your light switch in the car is malfunctioning .
also check the dimmer switch if every thing seems has to be checked with a meter and continuity tester.
its a minor problem of a short or loose wire but it has to be checked.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

Where is the signal flasher located

on the indicator stalk left and behind the steering wheel connected ot the steeing column if you push it away if will set the headlights to high beam if you push it towards you fully it will flash the headlamps.

the indictors to signal left and right are also on the left stalk push down for left and up for right.

the hazzard flasher is located in the middle of the dashboad above the radio and is a red triange depress once to activate and once again to deactivate.

if the wiper active at any time then try the stalk on the oposite side of the steering wheel.
