Re: Does not self cancel any longer and needs to be...
You will need to remove the steering wheel. If you have air bags it will take some special tools. Without these tools you should not try it. Without air bags, you will unhook the wiring at the base of the column for the switch. there is a mounting bracket that holds the column up, remove it. Remove the screws that hold the switch in. Tie a piece of heavy string to the wires at the base of the column.Pull the switch out till you can get to the string. Tie the string to the new switch wiring, and fish it back down through the column. Then reassemble everything else. Good Luck

you don`t say what kind of car you have. there are turn signal cancelling lobes on the turn signal switch and sometimes they are cancelling springs that are pushed back when turning to cancel the signals. sometimes they break and require replacing, sometimes you have to replace the signal switch itself.
sounds like a worn indicator switch or may be a loose connection to the back of switch try pushing home the wire connector to back of switch ,and as you will have cowling removed check the action of the switch, as may be getting caught on something requiring you to apply a bit more pressure to engage the contacts, try with the steering wheel in different positions as self cancelling device can cause these symptoms and that would be an expensive thing to rectify , i would live with it but upto you if it is the self cancelling
Your turn signal switch is most probably faulty. You will need to replace it. Please, check the videos below. The first video shows a similar problem on a Renault Clio. The second one shows the operations to replace the turn signal switch. I think that the operations are quite similar in most modern cars. Good luck!
Your car or truck turn signal switch can serve a number of functions. First it controls the blinkers. It also can tell your cornering lights to activate, and it is responsible for cancelling the blinker while the steering wheel is turning back. If your turn signals are not working properly or your blinkers do not shut off after you have made a turn, you may be in need of a new turn signal switch. Our turn signal switches are exact replacements. The are designed to function as well if not better and longer than the original. Plue we'll deliver it quickly and support you for all your car or truck part needs.
This is common for the turn signal/multifunction switch to do this. They have little plastis tabs that are hit when the steering is turned to cancel the signal. If those tabs have worn down or broken, the switch continues to work but will not cancel. Replace the switch if this is a major annoyance to you. Let me know if you need instructions or diagrams.
