Very nice. I don't know if I need to replace the siwtch or the relay, any suggestions? The turn signal works when I deploy the left side turn signal. But when I move the stalk up for a right turn, the dashboard right arrow lights but no blinking. Then after the wheel returns to center, the dashboard right arrow light goes dark. Prior to this, the right turn signal worked, but when it did and my headlights were on and the dashboard lights were lite, the dashboard lights would go dark. Thanks.November 17 , 2012 by Finley
