    2014 cascadia stopped canceling both left and right turn signals after the turn is complete. Was wondering if it was as simple as swapping some springs out or if it is a "once she's broke, she's broke." Kinda thing. All other functions of the switch/wipers/high beams are operating normally. Any help is appreciated!

    Take it apart slowly, keeping everything intact. Its only a couple springs,With small have moons on them, and a larger half moon center piece. They get sloppy. Usually the right turn position quits blinking, unless you hold it up. Half moon gets worn, in up (right) position, from gravity. Left turn position usually doesn’t. Mines that way now, intermittently. I’ve fixed them plenty of times. Never have bought a new one. Clean it up, stretch the springs out a little bit. Not too much. Look at the center half moon, it may have a groove worn in it. You may be able to flip it over. Or you can file it smooth again. Same with the small ones, swap them or file smooth if worn. Grease parts up, placing everything and holding things in place while putting it back together. Check operation for slop. Should be tight. Should last a while, till needed again.

    Really??? Lol. I thought I deleted the reply. Once I re read the problem was a self cancelling problem. I’ve never worked on the newer ones. Glad it worked. Those things aren’t cheap. Mines around $90 last time I checked. Ha ha! That’s funny. Glad I could help.
