Hello, all! Do our cars use a standard blinker unit that can be bought at any auto store? I had an old Grand Am where I just had to take 4 screws off the bottom panel of the steering column and then slide out the old blinker and slide in the new one. Hoping ours are just as easy?

Edit, per question below: I'm talking about the turn signal lever thingie that we flick up and down for the directional blinkers.

You mean the bulb or?

if you mean what controls the turn signals, that would be the column switch first (the stalk out of the steering column), then the ETACs unit (body control module, needs to be programmed and married to car with specialized computer, do NOT just swap it), and then a lighting relay, and also fuses of course

I meant the stem from the column. Sorry, that was much clearer in my head but managed to fail to make it into writing in my original post.

You need one specifically for our car, the exact Mitsubishi genuine part, no auto parts store will have it I’m guessing

junk yard part, dealer, or get it online through a Mitsu parts warehouse by part number

heres your part #:
8614A001
and this part is both stalks, seems to be easier to find:

Well, this is not exactly the answer I was hoping for. You have rained on my parade 😢 😅😅 Thank you for the info, I appreciate it!

Is it also harder to install? It almost looks like they require removing the steering wheel (based on images which may admittedly be generic), please tell me that's not involved.
