You will basically have to replace the cancel cam to correct this problem. Some disassembly of the steering wheel components may be required and if the vehicle is equipped with air bags it is probably better left to a professional.

SOURCE: Turn signal won't go back to "Off" by itself.

There is a device in the steering column that switches the turn signal back off. These do go out occasionally and since your vehicle is a 2007 it will probably be covered under warranty.

SOURCE: my turn signal lights wont work on my 95 firebird formula

Go under the dash on the drivers side, and locate the two flasher stat units. These are small round aluminum 'cans'. They plug in, and have flat blades on the bottom. (You of course won't see these flat terminal blades until you unplug them)

One is for the turn signals. One is for the four way flashers. I can't tell you which one is which.

Past this point, check all the grounds for the turn signals. The wiring harness at the front will have one, or two leads, (Wires), coming out that bolt directly to metal. Either sheet metal for the car, or to the frame. These leads have flat, round terminal ends on them, with a hole in the middle of the terminal.

The lead's terminal end bolts can work loose causing a bad ground, and/or, there could be corrosion in-between the terminal end, and the area of metal it bolts to. If so, use sandpaper, and clean the terminal end, plus the area of metal it bolts to.

There are ground leads, (Or lead), that come out of the rear wiring harness also. Check these.

Still no?
Then your turn signal bulb sockets have corrosion in them. This causes a bad ground.

You may be able to use a rolled up piece of sandpaper, and clean the socket.
(Also touch up the lead, {LED. As in the metal lead}, contact point in the middle of the socket. This is for the Positive connection, but it doesn't hurt to clean it while you're there.

After this is the turn signal switch in the steering column.
(My money is on a bad flasher unit)

replace the turn signal 'Clicker' also known as the turn signal relay. Most likely the problem unless you have a really wierd electical issue that will be hard to isolate...

2000 caravan headlights stay on. And no tail lites but brake lites and turn signals still work and horn beeps randomly on its own.


Replace the turn signal switch. All exterior lights run threw it, except the high mount brake light. The horn also. If the head light switch is on the handle, this should take of it also. If the headlight switch is in the dash, you might have to replace it also if they stay on.

Turn signal and break light


Make sure all the bulbs are working in the turn signal. Some front turn signals will use two or more bulbs per side. If any one of these bulbs are burned out it will cause the turn signal to flash at a fast rate. It also could be a bad control lighting control switch a.k.a. multi-function switch.

My turn signals on my 1988 Jeep Comanche dont work.


My first guess would have been the turn signal switch, which you said you replaced.
You'll have to get a wiring diagram of the switch and start testing wires for power out of the switch. Could be a problem with the main harness going back to the rear of the truck, or a ground for those sockets.

The directionals don't alaways work. I have to push the 4 way button to get them to work again


If your 3rd brake light always works, then the problem is the turn signal switch. To repair, you have to remove the steering wheel and air bag and replace the turn signal switch. If you have radio controls and or cruise controls on the steering wheel it will make a difference in which turn signal switch is the correct one. You will need some specialty tools to do this job such as a steering wheel puller and a compression tool and snap ring tools. Handling the airbag safely is very important, as it can severely injure you. If you have average or more mechanical skills, you can do it.

If the 3rd brake light does not always work, it could be a different problem.

1992 Ford Ranger Turn signal/Hazard light issue


Can you just check to make sure the ignition key switch is not staying over to far and not backing off when you try to start it. I had a truck that did that and it messed up my turn signals until I brought the key switch back a little after starting it. Just a simple idea. Be kind with your rating for me. Raz

Head lights wont stay on


Check your steering column. There is a switch that cancels the turn signals in there. If it's bad, your signals will act funny and this also affects the hazard switch. Banging on the dash is what triggers the signals to work as the vibration goes into the steering column also. You might also want to check the fuses, relay switch, located inside the the left fender next to the steering column. Sometimes, the radio and the turn signals will go funky at the same time. Make sure your radio is grounded.
Hope this helps.

1985 chevy s-10 rear blinkers dont work and no brake lights


First check all the fuses and make sure that they are good. The brake light wiring goes from the switch, through the turn signal switch, then to the brake lights. This is done so that when the turn signal is on and the brake light is on at the same time, the bulb will stay on steady on one side (away from the side you are signaling to) and the other side will flash.
If all the fuses are good, you have a bad turn signal switch. This requires a special tool (available at most parts stores or from the local Snap On man) to access the switch AFTER you remove the steering wheel.
