Blinker dash indicator stays illuminated

Swapped out my steering gear, shaft, and bearing; now my left blinker indicator light stays illuminated full time when headlights are on. It flashes when I activate the blinker, then stays lit solid once the steering wheel clicks it off on the return to straight. ANY IDEAS????

Which parts did you take apart ? Reason I ask is those areas are prime candidates. My blinker light comes on the speedometer when I have a turn signal or marker light out

check your exterior bulbs, that is a safety to let you know that one is burned out

Thanks guys...I was quick to assume that type of indicator was reserved for our newer cars. Just checked and the yellow running light
below the headlight is OUT!!!

Thanks again

This is interesting and kind of cool even if the math doesn't work out.

It might not work if you use the wrong size turn signal indicator bulb or LEDs

I never noticed this on mine because the fender marker lights always corrode away before one of my lights burned out.

Sadly,it wont indicate if one of the rear light goes out.
