I never had one, but I believe they use the GM signal switch - might need a new one if you can not free it. Just some thought here.
Standard 69+GM switch is used in these.
Could try loosening the 3 mounting screws a bit and then snug them up again.

Probably binding.

A weak cancel arm may keep the switch from fully returning as well.
