    Hey all,
    I think my turn signal lever is busted. The blinkers used to work fine and then slowly stopped working like they were supposed to. (Like they wouldn't turn off after a turn) Now they don't work at all. What is the most common problem with these blinker systems and how do i fix it ????

    Have you checked your blinker fuse? It's the big round silver or plastic thing on your fusebox. Most trouble with signals can be fixed by replacing this fuse.

    It sounds like a turn signal cam inside your steering wheel. The lever won't return to its normal position. They get old and crack.You can buy the part at Autozone for about 10 dollars. You need to remove the steering wheel, and the lock plate, read the instructions carefully and have fun. Make notes of where stuff goes in there cos its a real pain in the ass to put back together! good luck.
