I can't turn right when it is cold...

Okay..72 2002. when it is cold outside (under 30 degrees farenheit) and I turn my right turn signal on, it flashes momentarily and then doesn't work. Left turn signal works fine. If I jiggle it a little, sometimes it will work. Do I need to replace the switch, or can I fix.

Please help...I need to turn right eventually.

By the way, this is not intended as a political statement..

Lets see, first check all your connections. I forget what was doing this to seths car, but i think it had something to do with the connection to the hazard switch or something. Its a good idea to just clean all your fuses/holders, as well as all the bulbs/sockets. Unplugging and plugging back in various things can also break the crusty shit free and give you some more good amps-transfer... HTH!

1. Check ground, especially on front turn signal

2. Pull steering wheel and column surround, check turn signal lever for excessive play and old grease. You said it works sometimes if you wiggle it. Sometimes cleaning out the 30 year old grease and putting in a small amount of fresh grease will cure the problem. 3. Are you sure the stalk is actually turning all the way on? When they wear badly, the stalk (lever) may not be able to make contact because it's not traveling as far as it should. If there's a lot of wear, you may be able to peen the pivot point to take up some of the wear. You'll have to remove the switch to do this.

4. If all else fails, try another switch while you have the thing all apart so you won't have to do it twice.

Good luck

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
