On a steering wheel are 2 pins. These pins turn the signals off as the wheel returns from making a left or right hand turn. They reset the blinker mechanism by bumping the blinker arm and pushing the arm back to the center position. You can sometimes see these little pins that reset the blinker if you look between the steering wheel and the steering wheel column. There is a little gap where the steering wheel is enabled to turn with out rubbing the column. You will also see a circular copper plate in there where the horn makes electrical contact by a little flat tension arm and rubs the copper surface as the wheel spins in either direction.
To repair a damage blinker pin, the steering wheel most likely has to be pulled off and the pin repaired and steering wheel returned back onto the column. Not a big job at all, just more of a pain then anything. Some steering wheels are on pretty tight on their splines and a puller may be needed. If the pins are still intact in the back of the steering wheel, then the blinker mechanism has a problem and is not be triggered to return to center by the pins.
the light staying on solid green indicates a bulb blown at either the front or rear, this could also be a bad ground connection but usually is a bulb issue. If you replace the bulb, be sure to use bulb grease to seal our moisture.
As far as the signal arm returning to neutral and cancelling the signal, that is controlled by a part within the steering wheel itself, and could just be worn. It's a Plastic/Nylon piece that pushes the signal arm manually when you turn the steering wheel sufficiently. That would be a dealer part, or something purchased from a salvage vehicle.
you need to replace the blinker lever switch the whole unit take it to a dealership if you can't replace it yourself and be prepared they cost an arm and a leg but if you can fix ityourself check out a local junk yard for amatching car to see how it comes apart b4 you tear into yours.. but also could be the flasher located deep under the driver's side
happened in my 1997 dodge avenger, go ahead and replace the complete turn signal behind the plastic on the columb, very easy to do, 3 screws under the columb, 2 screws on the black plastic side of the turnsignal swithch facing the drivers side door, unplug, put in new or one out of junk yard, thats what i did and it fixed no problem...
I know this will sound Stupid. Get back inside to the Bulb that you Replaced and Turn it Over. Some of these Bulbs will only work if they are in a Certain way. Have that Side Blinker Going when you are Messing with the Bulb to Minimize the Work load on thisPlease Rate my Response, I need all the Help That I can Get! Thanks! Job.
check the socket whare the bulb goes for rust corosion. you can also test the socket by removing bulb and using a 12 volt test light. remove bulb and connect test light leads to the socket while the signal is on.connect one lead from test light to inner wall of socket and the other one to the terminals in bottom of socket
There are two cams on that plastic part which is actually called a horn ring.The cams push against the release springs canceling the signal blinker arm.It may be possible they are grooved and they don't push hard enough on the spring.You may also have the horn ring indexed in the wrong place. Check these out and send a post if I am in the ball park on this one. Good luck.
