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.

Turn signal switch repair

The steering column wheel has 2 pins pushed into the back side of it and as you turn the steering wheel making a turn, the pins slide over the humps of the blinker signal. As you return the wheel back to center to drive straight, these pins then hit the humps in the turn signal and push the turn signal back to the original position. It sounds like one of these pins fell out or broke off. You need to pull steering wheel and check to see if these pins are still inserted on the back side of the steering wheel.

Why when I put my right blinker on and make a turn the signal light does not click off automatically like it should?

I would check the turn signal switch....or the detent under the steering wheel that makes contact with the signal switch to cancel the light. Good Luck

Left turn signal will not turn off no matter what

You probably need to look in the tube under the steering wheel to check the mechanical action of the turn signal switch. If this car has a steering wheel air-bag, then disconnect one terminal of the battery and let sit for 5 minutes to discharge the arming mechanism for the air bag. Look for screw holes under the wheel to release the air bag. Mark the steering post and wheel with matching points from a center punch to get the wheel back on centered properly. The clicking noise that you hear is normal when the signal is ON.

Blinker lever not automatically disengaging

You need to use a "steering wheel puller" to remove the steering wheel. You will not gain access to the turn signal switch without the steering wheel removed.

If the problem happened all at once it most likely may not be the bulbs.

Blinkers wont click off automatically?!

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.
