Turn signal arm/switch won't release in a right turn


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. This is my first post and before I ask my question, I want to take the time to thank anyone who has contributed to the wealth of information on this site! I have learned a lot and I am still learning a lot about my car (2002 Carrera C4S) from your posts. Here's my question. My turn signal arm/switch will not release after placing it in the down position to make a left turn. It won't stay in position at all (without me holding it down) when I make a right turn. Is my switch assembly bad? Your help is greatly appreciated.

:thankyou:

Thanks Scubadawg. I found this online, is this a good price to pay for a new one? Switch Assembly Were did you purchase yours?

I didn't buy it yet, my turn signal switch failed 2 weeks before I parked my car for winter, but I will be purchasing from Suncoast Porsche along with a couple of other items that have to be OEM Porsche, at the end of March, I usually bring out the Pcar out of hibernation Easter time. You can also check Sunset Porsche since they are a sponsor here on Rennlist. I dealt with Suncoast since on the 6speedonline forum.

Also you can post your used switch assembly for sale, because someone will buy it to use the 4th stalk for the OBC. I have a purchaser that contacted me for mine as soon as I change it out.

I would not buy a used one, no telling how long it will last. Mines a 2002 with 60k so a new one last you awhile. I would stay with OEM

Thanks for the advice. I haven't ordered it yet myself but it's getting real anoying. Sometimes I forget I put on a left turn and it doesn't release so I ride down the road for a mile or so with the blinker on like a fool. I use to think to myself, hey look at that idiot with their blinker still on riding down the road. Now I'm the one doing it. I'll keep that in mind (selling the old one) when I DIY it. I see a lot of people use Suncoast here. I've been comitted to Pelican Parts for a while now but they wanted $407 for the part which surprised me. Looks like Maurice found the best deal.
