yesterday, i posted a thread about a clicking noise comming from my steering column when i was steering... it was like when the turn signals click off after you turn, except i didnt have the signals on...

NOW.. my turn signals DONT turn off after i make a turn... so they just stay on and dont turn off, i have to manually turn them off...

ANY clues

I had the same situation a few years back, got it fixed under warranty though:

Take apart the plastic box aroub thte back of the steering wheel and check the end of the handle to see if ti is properly connected.

everything is connected, and everything looks ok... everything works too, brights, left and right turn signals, they jsut dont turn off after i take a turn...

im gonna have a buddy that is/was a mechanic look at it.. im 100% sure he can tell me what it is, and i hope he can fix it... i just dont wanna go buying parts that are expensive if that isnt the problem... kinda poor..

from what i have read, it could just be the stalk? maybe? idk... i hope it is, that way it doesnt require removing the steering wheel....

if someone knows what the fork the problem is, or had a similar problem, please let me know... i cant stand maunally turning the signals off...

matt, sent you a pm about the turn signal, but doesn't look like thats your problem. I think I sent while your were posting videos. Looks like you found the problem in the steering column.
