turn signal issue

went to get an inspection the other day and failed because when you barely turn my wheel the turn signal shuts off. is this in the turn signal lever or in the steering column somewhere?

That would make you fail? Wow, stupid.
I would think the wheel is just in an odd spot

I made my Samsung SGH-I997 send this.

I would pull the plastic off around the column and take a look. U should be able to see the plug going into the signal switch and follow it. Obviously check wires around where the steering shaft is exposed also.

Mine is this way too. The signals all work fine it's more like the gears that make the switch disengage after the wheel is turned so far don't work correctly. The wheel being in the wrong place is what I always thought too. It's not that though you can have the wheel straight flip the switch for the signal and move the wheel not even enough to turn the truck. Boom signal switch back to off. Like the play in you steering wheel is enoght to do it. I guess I always thought they just sucked.

Yeah it won't stay locked. I'm sure I can replace the entire switch and it would fix problem.

Is this not too much trouble to replace? Mine switches itself off a lot, didn't happen 6000 miles ago. The cars I used to drive, the turn signal switch would wear out, but you couldn't buy a new one.
