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

Changing radiators is a real pain. I am not sure why the plug was disconnected but they were working in that general vicinity. Hard to believe the signals worked for all those years and quit at the exact time they were working in that area, I suspect there was a cable in the way so they removed it. When they replaced it they did not push the plug home good enough.

Probably there was a loose or a poor contact/connection, disconnected plug etc. somewhere on the turn signal circuit, and during the radiator work it has turned out to be a non working turn signal.

Whatever had been the problem, it is obvious that a proper troubleshooting has not been done by the shop.

It could be understood easily that the switch assy was ok, before deciding on the replacement of the switch assy, if the procedure in the service manual had been followed by the shop.
