need help.. no turn signals in my 88 Pioneer

My 88 runs great.. except that I have no turn signals.. the hazards work fine... have changed all the bulbs, all the fuses, the flashers, the switch and the circuit breaker... still no turn signals... where is the ground wire for these its the only thing I haven't checked and changed... am considering changing the whole turn signal assembly if needed... would love input and guidance

This really should be posted in the XJ Cherokee forum.

Use a steering wheel puller and make sure everything is good in the steering column

did you change both flasher relays? One for blinkers, one for hazards.

Beauty is in the eye of the jeepowner.

I suggest unplugging EVERY electrical connection in the engine bay you can find, whether engine related or not, and spraying it out with a good electronics cleaner, visually inspecting the terminals making sure they haven’t retracted into the plastic holder, and then plugging it back together. There’s a critical 10-pin connector for the front lighting system located in front of the air cleaner and behind the left headlight assembly. Don’t miss that one. Also be sure that the connectors to the ballast resistor mounted near the air cleaner housing are clean and tight.

ALL of the relays should be removed, the terminals wire-brushed until shiny, and the receptacles sprayed out with contact cleaner. Then plug them back in. I do this on every Renix Jeep I purchase or work on for someone else.
