The blinker mechanism in the steering column is junk.

I do not know how to change it...I'd live with it.

You may be out of blinker fluid.









Seroiusly though it sounds like your gonna have to take apart the steering colum to get to the problem.

Mine has had the same problem for a few years, and the guy at the autoparts told me that it was a gear or something that never breaks, so they don't make them. He said that it is way too much hassle to even think of fixing it. And just a little friendly advice, give up on trying to make it 'perfect'. It's not going to happen. It's a jeep. Live with it and love it!

Listen, strange women lyin' in ponds distributin' swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.

Hey,

I had the same problem on my '88 YJ. It's a spring inside the steering column that's broke. There's a separate spring to return the switch to centre from each way (up/right - down/left).

Yes, you have to take the steering wheel off and the whole works to get to them... If you do fix it though, change both sides while your in there... the part will cost next to nothing -- it's just a pain in the but to get to.
