I was driving my 98 Mitsubishi Mirage LS a few days ago. I turned on the signal to the left and it hasn't stopped blinking since.
I think I swiped it on a bit too hard. So possibly something has gotten stuck
I heard it could've been a bulb. So I have checked the left front blinker bulb and swapped it for the one on the other side with no improvement. Actually, the turn signal has now doubled in blinking speed.
Before this problem, it had an issue with not " clicking on" to the right (as in, you have to hold it up). Ironically, it now clicks on just fine. It just needs to stop blinking to the left constantly.
My next step is pulling the steering wheel. But I'm a bit scared of the airbag. Heh.
Any help ASAP is greatly appreciated, since driving with hand signals is not fun. Especially now that its getting cold out ; )
Let me know if more information is needed. I'll be checking back very often.
