Ok my problem is this, turn signals both work, for about 10-12 flashes, then go solid. Either side. Same with the hazards, go solid shortly after it's turned on. For everyday driving they seem fine, unless I sit at a long light, then they go solid. Sound like a flasher, or this commen signal switch problem? 2000XJ
Whenever I turn on my blinker, I push the stalk down and it'll blink a few time then shuts off even when the stalk is pushed down in the "on" position. Think it's the switch?
The Jeep is a manly device. And a womanly device. An American device. It’s a fitting instrument to transport the free people of a free nation with the respect to which we are entitled and the dignity that we deserve. Okay, we’re a little crazy to have a Jeep for a daily driver. But if we go off our meds, we might wind up in a Prius
Go to Heaven for the climate, go to Hell for the company.
Not sure if this has been posted or not. But instead of spending 100 bucks on new signal multiswitches there are a few vehicles that share the same switch.
Late 90's TJ's, of course late 90's XJ's - but if your locations are anything like mine, there arent alot of jeeps in the pick n pull yards.... SOOO do the next best thing! Go find one of the many hundred Dodge Neons your junk yards are bound to be chock full of - at least the yards up here are.
Any late 90's neon has the exact same signal light switch as 97+ cherokees.
I pulled one today from a 99 neon to replace the one in my 99 XJ - works perfect, same Chrysler model #s and everything.
Thank you for the instructions, they were easy to understand, I was having the problem with the turn signals not working, and my Father changed out the turn signal assembly, and after that I still had the same problem. My turn signal didn't turn off anyway after I completed a turn, so it got fixed anyway.
It turned out that my flasher was the part that was malfunctioning. My hazard lights worked, but the turn signals would only work a little, or not at all. He replaced the flasher, which is inside the dash- underneath the headlight knob on the left hand side. My father thought that they were on seperate flashers, but it turned out that the hazard lights and the turn signals are the same. You can locate it if you hear it clicking when you have the dash apart.
This worked great!!! I have a 2000 Cherokee Sport. Only difference was I did not have the bottom T15 screw. Also I was able to push the tilt lever toward the dash without having to remove the cable to get the switch out.
ps...I was able to get one T15 screw loose with a 7/16 allen, but in the end, I needed to stop at the store to get the T15 screw driver. Give the 7/16 a try but be very careful not to strip the screw.
Thanks for the writeup.
did mine today and had no bottom screw either.
Chrysler made the job just difficult enough that the avg Joe would go to the Stealership.
New turn signal switch but won't automatically turn off
Changed mine out tonite. Although the small white lever that resets the turn signal was broke it still stays on after turning. After further inspection there is a white plastic ring around the steering column that looks like a tab is broken off. So there is nothing tripping the new turn signal switch. Does anyone know what this part is called and how to replace it?
I am a "take apart" person and have developed a method to completely disassemble these switches and recondition them. I love to do detailede work and these were a challenge to me a couple of years ago. There are a lot of internal parts and the reassembly is a little tricky, but if you are careful, it can be done.
My time is abour 1 1/2 hours to do one of these.
I am currently doing this for a local shop with 100% success.
If anyone would like a rebuild, please let me know.
Also, I would consider buying your old one to keep in stock.
Instead of throwing your old one away, I could get you $10 plus shipping for your old one....help defray the cost of a new one.
These will easily fit into a USPS Priority Mail soft envelope...$4.95 anywhere.
I just replaced this switch, and I don't see how it can be done without removing the upper and lower dash panels along with the lower steel panel. I wrestled without removing the panels and finally decided I would end up breaking something in reassembly if I didn't take off the dash panels. I wish I would have just removed the dash panels from the beginning. Much easier to do that way.
