Say my man, I figured it out! It's your turn signal switch. I didn't replace mine though. I had to pull my steering wheel off and get into where it's located. When you get to the point to where you can slide the white plastic piece out there will be one screw located on the back of the piece that will give you access to the metal contact pieces on the inside. It's simple not complicated. The little metal clips should be in there without contact to any other part. They look similar to the child proof clip on a bic lighter. I simply took a needle nose pliers and gently reset them in correct spot. It's kind of a tedious thing, but with some patience you'll persevere. If you want to replace the whole signal switch here are two websites.

<-- this part is for the 63 without the tilt colum. Again the part is called TURN SIGNAL SWITCH.
Here are the steps to remove.
1) remove two 1/4" screws behind steering wheel. Take out the chrome horn trim, and set aside.
2) remove the three clutch head screw holding the horn bracket in. (clutch head screws have a slot that looks like a bow tie in a way, you either will need a clutch head screw driver I believe 1/4" also, but in my case they shouldn't be that tight so I was able to loosen then with a small flat head screw driver) now remove the horn contacts. *Note- any auto store will have that type of screw driver if needed.
3) you will now need a Steering Wheel Puller. They are like $15 bucks at auto store. This is needed because you will not be able to remove the steering wheel with out damaging something. Simple tool easy to use. Just follow the instructions on package. Abc123
4) remove the shift handle with a 1/4" nutdriver. Now you should be able to slowly work the plastic signal switch housing forward, and once you have it off of the steering hub remove the Phillips head screw located on back.
5) now gently remove the piece that the screw was securing. "Carefully" because you don't want the little metal clips to spring out and then lose them.
6) now that that piece is off make sure none of them clips are making constant contact. If one is then it will cause what is happening. Adjust carefully with needle nose pliers till everything is sitting center. Once you see how it looks you'll understand more. Easier seen then explained, but you'll get it.
7) test till correct response is achieved and repeat these steps in reverse as removed.
