Weird turn signal/electrical gremlins

My '98 TJ sometimes shows a solid left blinker indication sometimes when the vehicle isn't moving, seems to happen when the break pedal is depressed. I have no idea what could cause that to happen. As additional information, if it helps, the auto-cancel doesn't work when turning right (have to manually move it back), and if the wheel isn't exactly centered the stick doesn't want to click down to signal left.

Any idea what this could be, or if it could be indicative of another problem? It's also starting hard, but that's probably completely unrelated.

Sounds like a bad stalk to me. There has been lots of threads on the subject of replacing that stalk on this forum.

i have a similar issue, after replacing a busted ignition i get the left blinker go on when i come to a stop but that's only if i have used the left blinker before using the brake, i have to actually turn on the blinker and turn it off again.
