The dash is randomly displaying the alert for a disfunctional left
turn indicator light. Signaling a left turn results in a rapid
flashing of the left turn signal indicator. However, it appears that
the fault may be with the signal lever itself rather than the light.
Jiggling the lever causes the alert indicator to go out and the signal
works normally thereafter.
Should the lever be replaced? Is this something I should consider
attempting myself or is it best a shop job?
Have you checked that both left turn indicators are blinking when the
rapid blink happens? The rapid blink is typically caused by a bulb being
out. Doubtful that the lever is the root cause of the problem, more
likely a bad bulb or wiring at the socket that reconnecting with the
lever wiggle clears up momentarily.
