There are these little plastic cams inside the column that break. It may also be the spring being kinked or jacked up that returns it to center.

You'll need to pull the steering wheel, cover, and the plate off and check everything out in there. You'll need some special tools as well.

This will give u an idea of the job. If you think you can do it, these instructions will help.

Personally, it's a lot of aggravation and I'd probably just keep shutting it off with my hand

Mine failed inspection b/c of the same issue. All you need to replace is the turn signal switch. It's like a $40 part. You can replace it without removing the steering wheel but it is pretty difficult because of the plastic cover over the switch. I didnt pull the steering wheel but I did have to pull the dashboard.

O, and I have a TJ so IDK yours might be a lil different.

Nevermind, i just realized that the switch is totally different on a YJ, sorry. Looks like a lot more trouble that the TJ. If youre not getting it inspected any time soon, I would just turn it off manually.

I just fixed mine a couple of weeks ago. Cost me three bucks for new canceling springs. You have to pull the steering wheel and lock plate to get to the switch. There is a canceling cam on the shaft that bumps the springs on the switch to cancel the turn signal. One of the springs on mine was broken and wouldn't cancel the left signal. Chances are your springs are broken, but it could be the cam or the switch itself. Yjs use a gm turn signal switch, so keep that in mind when you go to get parts. The springs aren't usually listed for a jeep, mine were part number 49312. Orielly's sells them for $2.98 , but autozone wants $7.99 for them.
