Why might the turn signal in an 89 Ford truck not stay on but they work if held down?

The cam inside the steering column is broken. The cam is made of hard plastic and it allows the turn signal handle to stay in position. Otherwise you end up doing what you're doing - having to hold it. To replace, you have to remove the steering wheel. You can get the cam (plastic part only) from a parts store. From the dealer, the plastic part doesn't come by itself (it only comes with the wiring).

Transformers are devices that use the principle of coupled magnetic fields to step voltage up or down, or provide DC isolation in circuits. A signal transformer is a special application of a transformer that is used to couple a signal from one circuit into another circuit. The signal might be stepped up (or amplified), or it might be stepped down, or it might be coupled without an increase or decrease simply to provide isolation, impedance matching, or phase shifting from stage to stage in an electronic device.
