Blinkers wont click off automatically?!

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? :)

You may have a bulb burnt out if the relay didn't help.
Check all bulbs.

If that doesn't fix the problem, you may have a broken blinker cam inside the steering wheel. (where the blinker lever connects inside)

I would check in this order.
Bulbs
flasher relay
signal cam

Sounds like a problem in the headlight switch, or multi-function switch, or light control module, if vehichle is equipped with one. I'm not real familiar with Hondas.

Blinkers dont work. the turning singles wont blink


Hello, what you should do is if the blinkers just stay on constant when you turn them on means that the turn signal flasher is bad, it is located under the dash on the drivers side below the steering wheel. it will be a little silver cylinder with two wires coming off of it. General Motors usually puts them up against a bar under the dash.

  1. First check the alternator maybe you need to replace it.
  2. The horn honks when you turn the steering wheel because the wire inside the steering wheel is not fix.
  3. Visit a good mechanic and good electrician to check the alternator and the wirings.
