    Do your rigs have auto-blinker resets where the turn signal shaft automatically resets to off after you have made your turn? Mine doesn't and I got into a debate over whether or not it should with someone.

    yes it should have a canceling cam in the steering column. it's a white plastic round kinda thingy, if I remember right it's not real expensive.

    There are two springs in the steering column that cancel the blinkers. They tend to rust and break, especially on Blazers where they seem to get wet somehow. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif They are very inexpensive and easy to replace.

    Mine cancels from right turn but not left. Always wondered how hard that would be to fix.
