    So you're the guy that leaves his signal on for 20 min!!! Seriously, we need more info. When it doesnt work does the left arrow stay on steady on the dash? if so, suspect the flasher, or a front or rear left side bulb socket. Put on the 4 way flasher and walk around the car to compare left to right side for correct bulbs coming on. report back

    I apologize....it is a 01 Seville SLS

    Left turn signal works fine through 20 minutes of normal city driving, then will just show a steady light on dash.

    It has done this every day for a month.

    I tried the flashers...work good, then turn signal started working again after I turned the flashers on and off.

    Keep your commutes under 40 minutes and leave 20 minutes earlier.

    Don't think about it. It doesn't mean anything.

    Re: left turn signal

    By "tried flashers" do you mean the 4 ways and everything lit up ok? if so, swap the 4 way flasher for the regular flasher. 4 way flashers are more heavy duty units. and report back. Another thing to do, is when the light stays on steady, get out and look at the front and rear and make sure all lamps are lit and at full brightness. A corroded socket can cause this and be time or heat senitive.
