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.

jkeller Thanks for the suggestions. I will give it a try and see if I can get it to work before replacing it. I will keep you posted.

Ididit steering column problem

I installed a Ididit column on my 57 Chevy 210 and have found out that after I use the turn signal to change lanes my left brake light want work. If I use the turn signal to turn on a street and let it cancel on it's own the stop light works OK.
If anyone has experienced this problem with Ididit columns please let me know what I need to do to correct this safety problem.
