I have had experiences of cars wanting to indicate left as your driving along without touching the stalk,and it has always been down to the springs in the stalk being worn.As drive along,the stalk drops which then turns on the left indicator.

The units are sealed,so you need a new switch.You can try and take the switch apart,but there are small springs etc inside which never seem to want to go back in properly!

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
