Sounds like the wire might be a bit tight, therefor when you turn the handlebars the pull makes the connection weak because it tugs on the wire. You dont have to change the whole wire, you can get a single blue wire, cut it to length and add it within the original blue wire where the connection is weak. Just splice the ends, and then twist the metal wire inside the rubber outer-part, get it thick so it's not in strands therefor you have a good strong connection. Do the same to the original wire ends. Once that's done, twist the new and original wires together and tape the joins up with electrical tape. That's the cheap and easy DIY method anyway, you can also solder them before you tape them for extra support. Or if you want it to look abit better then you can use connectors. You can then cover the whole wire or part of it with heat shrink, as Andy pointed out.
