Thanks Rproject. I will look into cleaning those contacts as well. The difference I see between your issue and mine is that all my lights and blinkers work and the hazards work on all but the Left Rear light. The brake lights do not work at all. My left rear light is cracked and does allow some moisture it. Though my jeep is garaged and always has the top off and never really sees rain anymore. Muddy puddles on the other hand are common. They are probably in some sort of loops so who knows.... One blinker bulb goes out they both go out... kind of like Christmas tree lights.
Thanks remmons!! I'm gonna do a thorough cleaning of all light bulb contacts in the front and rear make sure all bulbs are good, do a little testing with the meter and as a last resort rip into the steering wheel. I've done it twice and have all the tools so it's not that big of a deal just time consuming. Thanks again all.
Mostly solved the problem on this issue. Started by pulling the light assembly and sanding off any rust on the grounding plate and test the light for continuity. Then spent hours with a couple buddies chasing back the wires from the left taillight and looking at the wiring diagram in the Chilton manual. Found that the hazard relay switch (round fuse like switch at the top of the fuse box under the dash) seemed to be causing an issue. Pulled it and reseated it and then the brake lights miraculously started working along with the hazard. I SAY MOSTLY because once the hazards are activated on the steering column it then only one hazard works and no brake lights again. Re-seat the round hazard switch again and whalla it works. Seems there maybe a short in the steering column after all. As long as I don't activate the hazards everything works fine. I did try and replace the Hazard relay switch and it still did the same thing. So for now... no hazards until I decide to take the steering wheel apart to test the wires.
It's good to hear that you may have solved the problem! I had a similar problem with my '68 chevy truck. I finally got the turn signals and the brake lights to work by replacing the turn signal cam, but I, like you, don't have the four-way flashers operating.

Hey, I am having the same issue with a 94 yj now, and was just wondering if you ever solved this issue. We replaced all bulbs and break light switch as well, to no success. Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated!
No I never solved it. Though I'm sure it's something in the steering column. I had to replace my whole column when the tilt wheel busted. Taking the steering column all apart is a major PITA so I'm gonna just leave it as it is. Sorry I couldn't be any more help.
