Turn Signal Problem

My left turn signal works when I hold the switch to the left and only intermittenly when I let go of the switch. In other words,most of the time I have to keep my finger on the switch for the signal to work. The right works normally. Any ideas?

Think they both use the same blinker relay(but not sure) so thinkin it's the switch, open it up, soak with WD-40 then blast with air, repeat if needed

I've done this with ALOT of atv's and it usually works pretty good, maybe it work for you

Yup, switch sadly. You'll have to open it up and look for any breaks/loose connections. Clean it out as well and reassemble.

If I remember correctly, the switch for left and right is one piece that makes connection on each side when you slide it over. The screw holding that piece down could be loose or the left contact could be off. Nothing too complicated just need to dig into it.

Take note on how it all goes back together should you fully disassemble it.

Problem seems to have corrected itself. The signal works every time now. We shall see.
Thanks to all
