    So both left and right blinkers work fine but once I turn and straighten out again the blinker stays on....I have to flip them back off vs the turning shutting them off. How can I fix this?

    Broken cam in the column. Not uncommon. Have to take the wheel of and the horn parts to get to it.

    Do they ever cancel? Is it both left and right sides that won't cancel?. Turn your steering wheel upside down and see if they cancel. If they do, your steering shaft is clocked 180° out. If they never work with 360° turn of the steering wheel, you probably need above mentioned parts. Did this just start, or has it been like that since you got the car? If they used to work, and just quit, you need parts.

    Prob all disco'd now at your dealer, I went in to buy all the parts, 2 bearings and
    A cruise turn sig lever was avail. Now prob all gone. They still had the tilt lever then, snagged that too. Prob same as firebird. If you never checked out Ames, take a look, they still do a catalog too.
