  • Right turn signal

    Whenever i use my right turn signal, make the turn, and straighten back out, my right "blinker" stays blinking. Is there some kind of canceling cam in the steering wheel assembly or something? If so, where? Any part info for me? My left turn works like a champ, just the right stays blink happy.

    Probably a broken canceling spring in the turn signal switch. They rust out and break off.
    You can see there are suppose to be two of the circular springs in this picture.

    One is at the 12:30 position and there should be one at the 7:00 Position.

    You probably will need a new Turnsignal switch eventually. Why not replace it now.

        I think you have to buy the whole switch.

        Not to expensive.

        Try NAPA or whatever auroparts store in the area.

        It's a common GM part.

          mY SWITCH IS ONLY A YEAR OLD, COULD THERE BE SOMETHING ELSE? MAYBE SOMETHING IN THE STEERING WHEEL ASSM? WHAT KICKS OUT THE LEVER ON THE SWITCH?

            This thing:

            But it's pretty fool proof. If you replaced the TS switch, you've probably seen it.


            I have seen were if the steering wheel isn't centered then it might not travel far enough to cancel it.

              Alaskan, if you used an omix replacement the spring is probably broken already. I had to take one of the springs out of my old switch assy to use on the new one...Let's hear it for China!

                    Mine turns off when turning right, but not left. If you get a new one, send me the left over spring, I'll refund some of your purchance price!

                      Hey guys this sounds maybe too simple...when I got mine about 4 years ago, the turn signals were doing all sorts of funny things to include what was described. You'd turn back to centerline and hear the click as if it was trying to work as advertised...mine ended up being a bad flasher unit. If you can hear the mechanism trying to engage inside(shut off the signal)...could it be similiar to my problem? To be honest, it might have been a total coincidence and it just started working like things do in Jeeps:-)

                        FIXED....THANKS FOR ALL THE INPUT ON THIS ONE! TURNS OUT THE SPRING WASN'T BROKEN, JUST DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH "SPRING" TENSION TO KICK IT BACK OFF. QUICK ADJUSTMENT OF THE SPRING DID IT. STRUGGLED TO GET THE SNAP-RING BACK ON THE STEERING COLUMN (DON'T HAVE THE PROPER TOOL) BUT AFTER I GOT THAT, IT'S DONE AND FIXED. THANKS ALL. I HOPEFULLY WON'T EVER HAVE TO TEAR INTO THAT STEERING COLUMN AGAIN.
