My left turn signal is on 100% of the time when the car is turned on. Even if you place the turn signal in the position for "off" or "right turn" the left signal flashes constantly unless you remove the fuse. Emergency flashers work fine. Is this the turn signal flasher malfunctioning? Does repair require removal of the steering wheel?

Hi sherilspain,

Thank you for the donation.

I would suggest checking the turn signal and hazard flasher unit first. It is located behind center of dash.

If the turn signal switch is bad, replacement requires the steering wheel to be removed. If vehicle is equipped with air bags, care has to be taken while removing and installing the steering wheel.
