Blinker/Flasher Problem

My flashers on my 2000 Cherokee Sport XJ are flaky...my flashers sometimes flash, sometimes just go solid on and don't flash... they NEVER turnoff after I have completed my turn...I'm worried this may be dangerous for my daughter who will be driving within a year and want to fix...

I ordered this part based upon what someone said in another thread http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/web...ontent=general think this will fix? or do i have somem other prob?

I had the same problem with my 2001 when I got it. I replaced the flasher and never had the problem again. 99% chance that will solve your problem.

First, replace the blinker flasher module first, because it is cheaper and easier.

To replace the 1997-2001 XJ or TJ multi-function switch/turn signal lever you do not need to remove the steering wheel.

ok for clarity the picture with the red arrow is pointing at the module to replace first. I bought one of those and am going to pickup... the other picture you show with the lever... that's a different part and is the one I would need to remove the steering wheel to replace should step 1 not work? This jeeoforum is the best!!! I'm looking forward to gaining enough knowledge to help answer some questions for other and pay it all forward...
