    This is really starting to bug me. It seems that I have to make a pretty decent turn in order for the blinkers to automatically turn off. anyone else notice this? Is there a fix?

    I've taken a slight notice to it but surprisingly it doesn't bother me, and I'm the type of person that I would think it would.

    Really? Blinkers take too much turning to turn off? You have a hand. You can always bump it off. I don't even think about it.

    There is a switch in there that can become broken or loose. It broke on time on my bosses 4 runner one time. 400 fix, he said he would have just used his hand had he known it would be 400 for a switch.

    Hey. Me too. It is half an inch away form their hand. A monkey could signal at the right time on accident. What are people's excuses for not doing it?

    No it does not bother me. I'm just glad I notice it has not turned off, then I turn it off manually.

    It's also required by law for lane changes, at least in CA. But that is a whole lot of murder... and they deserve it, lazy assholes. Lift a finger.

    I just flick mine off after turning. After all, if I can flick it on with my hand, I can turn it off just as easy, especially if I hit it with my hand when returning back to center with the steering wheel.

    I forget to use mine. I usually remember 1/2 way through the turn.

    I figure people are only 1/2 pissed at me by then.
