    Chevy Cobalt turn signal issues


    There is a plastic piece inside the steering column that will automatically turn the turn signals off when the steering wheel is turned back to 'straight ahead'. This plastic piece can break, and if it does, they can only be turned off manually, as you are doing. I have not worked on anything as new as your cobalt to repair this, but on older cars it involves removing the steering wheel and turn signal assembly. You must also deal with the air bag. Don't attempt this repair unless you have a manual to follow to disarm the air bag and properly remove the steering wheel and other components.

    Air bag remove 98 gmc sonoma


    It's unlikely the turn signal switch. Try disconnecting the switch mounted directly above the brake pedal. If the light turns off the problem is in the brake switch. They commonly go bad and can be picked up at a gm dealer for about $15.
