Default Left turn signal turns off dash lights

1995 SL1 Auto. When the left turn signal is activated, it also kills the dash lights. Only happens when signal is 'fully engaged' ( does not happen when using the 'lane change' feature). Right signal is normal and all other functions including cancelling also work properly.
Is there any cure short of replacing the entire multifunction switch assembly?
Is it possible to clean and lube the switch? Without removing it from car, perhaps only removing clamshell column covers and not removing airbag and steering wheel, then flushing with contact cleaner and lubing?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Turns off the dash lights....you mean the light return when you cancel the LEFT signal? If so, I'd just replace the multifunction stalk...sound like you will have other issues if you don't do it now.....especially while daylight is still somewhat longer and winter is approaching...get it done now than later in the cold..

Has nothing to do with cancelling, that works fine. The backlighting behind the instruments (speedo/tach) goes dark when left signal is selected but not with right.

Correct, I understood that, what I was attempting to say was that the stalk is bad, and is only affecting the left position INSIDE the stalk mechanism.

The dash lights do return whenever you stop the full left signal and return the stalk lever to normal position....correct?
