Thanked: Once

Thanks Pathfinder, live2drive and Guru Ji. I guess, I know what to do now. Will get it settled when I get my alignment done.

hey, this is a common problem, usually happens when you get the alignment done and the mechanic then refits the steering because the alignment had turned the steering, better get the steering fitted properly before the tiny lever responsible for shutting the indicator breaks off as happened with my Matiz, and then you will have to get the entire assembly changed.

In my Zen the indicator auto-return cuts off prematurely before completing the turn. I saw a electrician but he was unable to rectify the problem - can anybody tell me what needs to be checked?
This is no stealing the thread. Relax. It is better to put similar problems in single thread rather than having separate ones.

Again this is a mechanical alignment issue with the steering – get a right mechanic to check and rectify it and not electrician. MASS should be able to do it.

the turn light not cutting off auto is very simple. nothing to panic.
i dont know about esteem but these stalk switches are similar on most jap vehicles. I am giving you my experience with ref to a Nissan vehicle.

open the plastic covers which hide the steering column. should be some 5 to 6 screws. now you will see the stalk switches the turn and the wiper stalks, which will be having generally 2 or 4 screws. unscrew these and gently get the stalk switch of indicator out.
spray some WD40 on the inside of the switch that was bound to the steering (there are 2 small nylon clips which should remain a bit out) and these 2 clips should have a spring effect. wipe off any excess wd40. with the turn switch NOT ACTIVATED fit to steering column and fix screws not full tight. activate the turn signal and turn the steering clockwise andticlockwise. the switch will release. fix up and your done.
