The turn signal switch does not autocancel when the switch is used for a left hand turn. What part do I need to order to fix this problem?

The turn signal switch has a little lever that pops out when the switch is turned to left or right. A cam on the back of the steering wheel pushes on that lever.

Remove the switch and work that lever by hand. If the lever does not retract when you push it up or down, replace the switch assembly.

If the switch seems to work properly, you'll have to remove the steering wheel to inspect the cancelling cam.

So, how does the swith come out? Does the switch come out from the side or do you have to pull the wheel to remove it? How does the turn signal handle disconnect from the swith, it appears this has to come off before the switch can be removed.

Thanks

There were two different styles. The older style, with the cruise control switches on the signal lever, can be identified by a 1/8" diameter black wire leaving the base of the lever, and going into the column. That stalk must be pulled straight out, but don't pull it more than an inch or it could rip the wire.

The steering wheel must be removed along with the lock plate. Three screws hold the switch to the steering column. You will also have a flat wiring harness that must be pulled through a plastic tube through the column. Tie a wire to the connector and pull it up through the tube, then you can use that wire to pull the new harness down.

The newer style switch has a large body that is held on with two screws. You will have to remove the plastic cover around that part of the column to get to the screws. The electrical connector attaches to the back of the switch. This is the one that has the little lever that pops out when you turn the signals on.
