So I've removed the airbag, the steering wheel, and I'm now a bit stuck. Sharky mentioned that the stalks are assembled like a puzzle and removing them can be a bit tricky, he wasn't kidding. I don't want to break anything trying too many methods so I thought someone could give me some direction.
The reason for all of this is to remedy my turn stalk that keeps ticking even after it's in the off position. I have replaced the emergency flasher relay already and that is not the culprit. My attempt is to remove the turn signal stalk, clean it, and then reinstall it. If that doesn't cure it I'll have to go back in to replace it, but that's another chapter I hope not to write about.
Here are some shots of where I'm at.
Right side (Key) Angle
And in case someone might know for sure, the below is a picture of what I thought could be the problem. It's an electrical strip (for lack of the technical term for it), that looks to be black coated everywhere else but on the bottom exposed section. Not sure if that would cause any issue like what's happening but it does seem that the coating has worn off here and it does connect to the turn signal stalk. Would this be anything that would cause an issue like this? Or would this type of wire strip be for something like the Cruise Control?
