    I couldn't figure out how to get the problem into a better thread title.

    I put my turn signal on.
    Stop.
    Make my turn.
    the Turn signal never quits blinking even after the steering wheel returns to neutral position.

    What part needs to be replaced?

    Based on pages 8-125 to 8-129 in the service manual, this could be a cam, a spring, or a switch.
    It seems to require 2 specialty tools.
    This is giving me a sinking feeling.

    We call that turn signal canceling.

    My guess is one of the tools is a steering wheel puller and the other is the lock plate compressor to get the clip off the steering shaft, so the lock plate can come off. Under that is the signal switch.
    Most common is the tangs are broken off which are part of the switch assy.

    So is this something I need to punt and have the mechanic repair?

    I mean, I can live with it but eventually I want to have the complete package including the auto cancel of the signaling.

    Miller tool number C-3428-B is a standard steering wheel puller – which you can rent from most auto parts stores (or purchase for about $10-15.

    I found a link for this Miller / Mopar Tools C-3428-B Steering Wheel Puller but no need for it, when it can be obtained a lot cheaper elsewhere.

    The design that Aspen500 posted is more useful for other projects.


    Miller tool number C-4156 is the steering lock plate depressor (to get snap ring out), and I think it can also be rented or purchased inexpensively.

    Once you get the lock plate out of the way, you will see the turn signal switch and may even find the broken finger at that time. Note: it doesn’t pay to re-glue the finger, just find a replacement.
