2001 Mitsubishi Mirage Blinker

While driving down the road the right blinker came on. The blinker switch is on the column and in the center position. I pushed it down to the left but the right blinker continued to blink and the left did not. The flashers work both sides. I changed the flasher module to no avail. I can hear an audible click when I activate the switch to the left or the right position. Is the problem in the column switch and if so is that a dealer repair?
