2000 1500SE - Turn Signal Self-cancel
Last year I had to have may two radiators replaced on my 1500SE. After the work was done and I left the shop my turn signals would not operate properly - wouldn't lock into position (had to manually work them). I was told that it was the switch. This year brought back to shop with new switch. It was installed and guess what, the switch wouldn't lock into position. After some trouble shooting by shop and in contact with Honda Tech it was determined that the Cancel Unit (Turn Signal) in the steering stem had a wire that was not connected. This strikes me as an extremely odd situation that a wire in the steering stem would all of a sudden become loose (disconnect).
My question is when the shop performed the rad replacement last year is there any possibility that they disturbed this connection, eg, move the unit to work on the rads?
If they disturbed the unit then it means that the switch I just replaced was probably okay plus the extra hours they will want to charge to troubleshoot.
All feedback is very much appreciated. Thanks
