Am I in the limbo? Getting the silent treatment? Not one response to my
Lucas switch question. Hey I admit it I contributed a "No LBC" observation a
week ago. Mea Culpa! Sorry! Never so to do again. But don't leave me in the
outer darkness. I'm driving without my indicators waiting for somebody to
tell me if it's possible to fix that big switch on the steering column. It
makes all sorts of interesting sparks and smoke when I have it plugged in.
Not good (unless you want to light a cigarette). So if anyone knows the
magic trick to fixing them, or wants to sell me a used one, please reply.

I found out the reason for my strange flashing signal problem. The turn
signal switch on the steering column is shorting internally when
to the right, and sometimes when to the left. Sometimes it is just
to ground and then you hear the flasher clicking away even with the
in the central position. The telltale smoke coming from the column gave
away pretty quickly.
Question. Is it worthwhile trying to repair these units, or are they
once they start to go?
Not looking to go spend where I don't need to, but don't want to have a
meltdown on the road with a patched up switch either.
