Electrical problem
2001 Acura CL 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 115000 miles

I have my right turn signal that stays lit solid whenever I apply brakes-- even when the signal's not turned on, the signal lights up when I brake.

If I'm not braking, the signal works as normal, but is definitely making a louder than usual " clicking" then it's on.

The left signal works fine, and braking does not effect the left signal when it's on. Just the right.

Suggenstions?

Sounds like the brake circuit is shorted to the right turn signal circuit-inspect and test the wiring

It turns out it was the wire harness for the trailer hitch installed by U-Haul; cost me only $65 but I feel U-Haul ought to cough up the dough for this (fat chance I'm sure).
