Question about 1996 Honda Civic
96 civic coupe EX. Blinkers will turn on/off just fine if you manually do it. But when steering wheel returns back to position, they dont click off on there own. What is the part that is causing this? switch or something?
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.

Mine does this when it's cold outside. Usually when warm weather starts, it works again. I've always thought it as some sort of expansion happening, but what do I know? :)
