Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 1 year ago.

that is the diagram i have for 1995 , but how about pulling each relay one at the time since we not sure on label and the one that turns them off will be the one ,

Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 1 year ago.

the turn signal switch itself also goes bad the one in steering column probably is stuck or shorted out internally

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

you can try unplugging the turn signal electrical switch connector from steering column

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
His trying that now but leave it unplaugged or reconnect it after 30 seconds or what?
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 1 year ago.

no just leave it unplugged if the trun signal light go off then the turn signal switch itself is the problem

than leave it unplugged until he can replace it
