I think the problem is you're checking for only a single pixel collision.

You have 2 variables for the mouse coordinates, and check to see if "mouse_x == the sign_x" and the "mouse_y == the sign_y" when what you want to say is:

"Is the mouse colliding with any part of the sign?";

So you can do this instead:

GML:
if (position_meeting(mouse_x, mouse_y, id) == true){
   //The mouse is colliding with this object
}

I think that should work!
 
If your sign is an actual Game Maker object, you can use the "mouse enter" and "mouse leave" events for just that!
Although checking in the step event is a valid solution as it would work, you don't really have to do that check in the step event
