Re: turn signal switch return
Unfortunately the entire switch must be replaced. When you pull the steering wheel to accss the switch, make sure the cam is not worn out that activates the return. The switch usually wears out on the return but I have seen the cam worn out.
Hope this helps,

If the right side works fine, have to check turn signal switch and wiring. Sometimes, at the turn signal switch, you can use a jumper wire on the proper wire terminals and make them turn signals dance. The jumper just bypasses the switch, so if it works, I think the switch is the problem.
Make sure the indicator lever clicks into place when you turn it on. It is possible that the retaining catch is broken, and when you turn the signal on, all you get is the lane changer that will make the turn signal flash only for as long as the lever is making contact.
Listen and feel the switch. Does it feel and sound the same as the right hand signal when you turn it on? If not, you probably have to replace the turn signal switch on the column.
From the description you give I assume that the right hand side works OK.
If the turn signal filament of the right front park/turn lamp is known to be OK and the hazard switch is in the normal position, the hazard switch or the turn signal/multi-function switch could be defective
It could be the turn signal switch. the white wire comes from the brake switch into the turn signal switch. Make sure that is hot with brakes applied. the wires coming out of the turn signal switch to the left is Yellow, and Dark Green for the right. Same for the turn signals.
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.
Probably not a switch problem.
Most turn signals are reset via a mechanism actuated by a finger attached to the hub of the steering wheel and acting on a switch actuator that is set when you choose left or right blinker.
The entire assembly is probably plastic and some are quite fragile.
Unfortunately, removing the steering wheel to replace or shim anything requires the removal of the hub-mounted air bag and this is something better left to a Honda service tech instead of risking the $6-700 air bag and a black eye or two.
On a vehicle with working turn signals but the motor & radio off, try setting the signal with the wheel centered, then turning it in the direction signaled.
You will hear one or more clicks when the resetting mechanism is engaged.
You will not hear that on your car.
