    This is serious and could lead to fire.
    The contacts of the light switch are sparking, the problem should have been solved if the relay was installed properly.

    The best would be to get the complete (turn & wiper) unit replaced. Its easily available at junk yard.
    Do it asap.

    Bro replace the stick that you use for dipper.

    It is a problem with corolla.

    I noticed it in our corolla, if the dipper stick is held at a certain spot, it emits smoke

    Well it might be a good idea to examine the old one maybe it is repairable.

    Get rid of the hid, they can cause this problem, they are a hazard anyways,

    You might want to install relays with the switch. Some vehicles have this switch design flaw. Some flaws we create for ourselves by installing high wattage bulbs.

    I can vouch for existence of this fault in 03-07 City. Have personally experienced this kind of problem. And if my memory serves me well, the khyber had this issue of smoke from indicator switch as well. The best solution is to install relays if not installed in factory circuit.

    An Example:
