Blinker Problem?

Hey all,
When i go to use my blinker it works fine when you turn in on, but it won't shut off on its own, i have to manually shut it off.
How could i fix it?

There is a switch located behind the steering wheel (in the steering column) Its a simple fix on most cars (nvr done it on a jeep so can't say for sure....but usually the worst part is the fear you feel when you disconnect the airbag.)

Or you're out of Blinker fluid. I had to add that.

Is your steering wheel straight when you drive straight ahead and not rotated any to the left or right?

A blinker is supposed to shut off after you make one complete rotation of the sterring wheel. And i could put the blinker on (left or Right) and steer around in circles one way and back the other and it will not shut off unless i manually push it up or down.
Is there some type of gears in there or a switch? Can i fix it or do i have to replace it? If so where can i get it? Quadratec..

You can get the switch from nearly any auto parts store, you don't need to buy things like that from Quadratec who is about the most expensive source for Jeep parts on the planet. I replaced my turn signal with one from Autozone and it was the exact same switch I removed, down to the initials of the QC inspector scribbled onto the little blue final inspection sticker.
