hazard light problems, but turn signals work.

Hey all
so all of my turn signals function correctly and both the front and back ones turn on when they are being used, the dash indicator turn arrows also light up properly during use too. For some reason when I turn on my hazards only the front drivers side one lights up, also only the left arrow indicator on my dash blinks.
Has anyone experienced something similar? Or have any ideas? I checked the fuses bit I couldn't find anything, unless I missed something.

Thanks guys

Could be bad relay, switch the flasher, and turn signal relay and see if the problem happens now when you turn on signals, and fixed when you use hazards.

Just had similar "odd" light issues. May be corrosion in the wiring. Specifically in the plug that the bulbs go in. I played hell trying to find why my lights would not flash properly 1 hr before state insp. That's where the problem was.

There is a decent chance your multifunction switch that controls turn signals and 4-way flasher is worn out.

I don't own an XJ any longer, but I still think they are the best of all the Jeep products ever made. My XJ was my favorite vehicle in my 50+ years of driving.
So...I stick around and give advice.

Sounds like a flasher. Located at the left front kick panel where you're fuses are. Switch the 2 flashers around and see what happins.

This, the flashers are the large round things in the fusebox.
About $12 at advance, if you dont have a cover on the fusbox you can accidently kick it and break it. Thats what happened to mine.
