Re: turn signal does not turn off automatically after turn

It maybe the turn signal return spring failure, or the turn signal cam has broken.
Reminder... some cars are equipped with air bags in the steering wheel. Those cars are also equipped with a device below the steering wheel called a clock spring. Have some zip ties nearby as you have to have the front wheels pointing straight ahead before removing the steering wheel. then remove the clock spring and bind it with a zip tie to stop it from changing position. Failure to lock it in position may result in its failure. If the turn signal is staying on even though the switch cancels, then the problem is in the switch
This is just one of the things you might encounter if you decide to fix or replace the turn signal switch.
Very well said. And a good reminder too in regards to the air bags that may come out when you decided to fix it yourself. Better off, go to a dealer and replace the turn signal switch.
