If the switch is on the signal stalk you can usually see the small wires if you look closely through the opening on the side of the clam-shell covering the steering column so you will need to remove that. If it's on the face of the wheel you will need to get the air bag out of the way first, which means disconnecting the battery to avoid having an issue with the restraint system going off accidentally. Once you have access to that area you can more easily see what to check. In the case of a wheel mounted switch the contacts must traven through the clock-spring behind the wheel to get to the car's wiring so if the switch checks out ok then you should probably replace the clock-spring. That's a common wear item these days.

Here's a couple of videos to give you the general idea of how to go about this.
