welcome to hell!!! its an easy fix, the quick cheap way is to replace the signal relay in the steering colum, a more expensive fix, and prob the one you will need to do is to replace the signal swtich intirely. I had it fixed (after triing to replace the relays) by the mechanic, and its been sweet blissfully silent since.
