Could just be some gunk-dirt build up underneath where the switch slides back and forth, might try getting some electrical contact cleaner in an aerosol can and give it a good spray down. Mine seemed to stick a little and this cured it.

There are 2 springs,a ball bearing,solenoid running on a detent in the bottom of the assembly.clean and lightly grease them.
Oh and the auto canceler could be energizing the solenoid trying to trigger the turn signals off too.
