[s-cars] No turn signals w/lights on

+1 for the ignition switch being to blame.

I've had to manually twist the key back to the "run" position for a couple 
of years in my CQ.  It becomes a habit.  The only bad thing about that is 
when you climb into a different car and try the same thing.  You wind up 
shutting it off as soon as you start it.

  Ignition switch.  Very common.  Not sure which of the 4 vehicles it's
  occurring on, but probably common to all.  You'll probably find that the
  climate control fan also does not function when this occurs.
  Essentially anything that goes through the X-cutout relay.  Ignition
  switch housing is cracked and internals are hanging up and not fully
  returning to "Run" when you let go of the switch after starting.  Make
  sure you move the switch back after starting as sometimes the starter
  remains engaged.  Switch is around $30 at the dealer.
