Left Turn Signal on When breaking

Heya Folks

This started today. My left turn signal is working fine up to the point I break.
Then it comes on Steady.
When I am not breaking, it blinks properly.
I have checked all fuses and bulbs and they all look ok.

Any ideas.. this is a bit annoying.

Cheers

Check Grounding on that side
The best way to check this is to pull light bulb out and see what happens

I would start with a rear turning lights
That should the easiest to access

Keep us posted

Here is what I have done...

I moved all the bulbs around starting in the back and moving in front with no changes...

So.. I decided to go in the steering column, I removed the bottom and was trying to get the top to go and the emergency signal switched changed and the turn signal starting to work normally.

So.. there is something wrong in the steering column, but it is working now, I think it is only contacts that need to be clean, but I was cold and decided to put it all back together. Hopefully it can last up to spring and in the spring I can take it apart...

Thank you all for your suggestions.. I learned a lot today

Are your break lights and turning light the same light.
Check your flasher and the relay that controls break lights

Nope.. they are not...

But.. I am wondering if it could be the Flasher Relay(switch,the yellow one) that does that...
