I have my Dodge truck and sometimes when I signal LEFT, the little green arrow doesn't show by the gauges and the lights on the outside don't blink. It happens every so often and I have to push the lever down harder to make it work. What is the problem?
Do you
have the same problem?

If pushing down harder on switch helps then I would suspect faulty multi-function (turn signal) switch.

I can post replacement procedures if you would like. What kind of truck is this exactly? Also is it a tilt steering column or standard steering column?

It's a standard. It is a 1990 Dodge Pickup W250.
