ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
12/30/2009
 When attempting to cancel turn signals (left or right), it is very likely that the opposite turn signal will be activated rather than canceling. this causes the driver to have to check the dash for turn signal cancellation. it is common to have this occur multiple times with each cancellation attempt, causing the turn signals to alternate left & then right multiple times all while trying to cancel it. several attempts and several seconds of the driver's attention is often required to successfully cancel turn signals. this presents a safety hazard as the driver is not watching the road and traffic and also because the driver is sending confusing signals of his/her intent to other drivers. this problem happens at any speed or while stopped. this problem can occur with every attempt to cancel the turn signal. this problem seems to be worse while wearing gloves.
