Title: Turn Signal Cancellation
Post by: december2017 on December 19, 2017, 05:47:25 PM
My turn signal cancellation isn't working and mechanic #1 says there's a part missing that connects the (aftermarket wood) steering wheel to a plastic piece that cancels the blinker. In other words, he contends that the steering wheel mechanically causes the blinker to cancel via a piece attached to it.

But mechanic #2 says that the steering has nothing to do with cancelling the blinker. He recommends I remove the steering wheel then take off the clamshell plastic shroud and that is where the problem will be seen. He says (contrary to mechanic #1) there is no "piece" that connects the steering wheel to another part that cancels the blinker.

Clear as mud? Sorry if I'm making it confusing. I have photos.  I have since sorted this matter out.
