The contact owns a 2006 Dodge Ram 3500. While stopped, the contact activated the driver's side turn signal indicator light but the passenger's side turn signal indicator light illuminated haphazardly. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for diagnostic testing where the technician stated that the multi function switch would have to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired.

Unsure what caused the issue. The issue is the failure and or uncertain action of the turn signals as well as the hazard lights. The turn signals at times will not function at all or will signal in the opposite direction that the switch was indicated. The fault started to occur at around 60K miles. Truck has 107K miles now and failure has increased frequency as the miles have increased. I have found that if I leave the turn signal switch alone while it is malfunctioning and adjust the tilt steering the turn signal issue may or may not resolve itself.

  • 47,000 miles
Turn signal sometimes shows opposite of what is selected. Phone interview update (8/26/2008): Mr. Madison was on the left turn lane waiting to turn left with the turn signal on. The motorist behind him horned and told Mr. Madison that his pickup had the right side turn signal flashing. Mr. Madison was puzzled because he had moved the turn signal stalk down to turn left. On that day and that day only, the turn signals were flashing in the opposite direction to what Mr. Madison had selected. The turn signal errors appeared on the dash indicators as well as the exterior indicators.
