My blinker arm does not return when I make a right hand turn

Why does my blinker arm not return when I make a right hand turn. It works fine when I make a left hand turn.

    I have just replaced the whole blinker assembly with a new one. This is a 79 cj7. is there something else i might be missing. The flasher springs work fine. I have the snap ring off at the moment and have put it back together several times only to have it do the sme thing. Is there something that works with it electroniclly that causes it to retun? I thought it might have something to do with the white plastic piece that has the copper ring that makes the electric connection with the piece on the blinker assembly. Or is it completely a mechanical response to have it click back?

Turn signal stays on


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.

Right blinker makes both back blinkers flash but only the right on the front


I would suspect the turn signal switch is defective. Do not place any parts until an qualified GM tech has confirmed this guess.

Blinker issues


These are two seperate issues:

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.

good luck

Why does my blinker arm not return when I make a right hand turn?


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.
