Default Self cancelling turn signals not working

I have a 07 xl7 and about 2 weeks ago the turn signals stopped self cancelling for both directions. It seems I also now need to hit the signal a couple of times here and there to get it to stay on. Does anyone know of an issue like this. What can I look at or has anyone else had this and fixed it? Right now it's more of a pain but might end up a problem should that stop working altogether or fail to disengage even manually.

Thanks!

The problem is most likely in the switch assembly.

I began looking and have ordered a replacement assembly. Now I guess is how do I get to it. Just something about messing with the steering wheel or steering column with an airbag concerns me a bit.

It should - there are usually specific steps to be followed to disable the airbag and prevent it from exploding in your face - unfortunately I don't have those instructions for your vehicle.

You also need to know about the "clock spring", which is a helical cable in the center of the wheel that can easily be damaged - start with the wheels in the straight ahead position and don't turn the steering whilst you have it apart, and you should be fine.

I'll definately watch out for that clock spring.

The part is a standard Delco part (ACDelco D6254E) and is the same on many GM vehicles. I've looked at an HHR video that uses the same one and the thing just snaps into a socket on the column and has a couple of molex connectors.

Now tracking down how to disable the airbag just to be safe.
