Hey guys, i hope you can help me on this, my turn signals dont work, they dont even flash on the little screen above the steering wheel, the other day they started to flicker really fast, and today, they dont even show up or work, but my 4 ways work?? i checked the fuse and it was ok, any suggestions?

its probably your circuit breaker. if i remember right, theres a seperate circuit breaker that causes your hazards to flash. how to check it, i dunno, but if you look under your dash, right above the fuse box theres 2 silver cylinders. ones for your signals, one for your hazards. i think. or is one for your wipers? lemme go find a wiring diagram

alright. figured it out. the 2 big cylinders are for your hazards and your flashers. theres a small square breaker in the box for your wipers. anywho. the rapid flashing pretty much tells you that thats where your problem lies. i guess if they get damp theyll break the circuit until they dry up, submerge your jeep lately? or maybe its just fried. <shrug> g'luck

One of the flasher cans is for the turn signals (the left i think) and the other is for flashers. Replace one see if they work, if not replace the other. Hopefully that will work.

check your bulbs first if you havn't done this... they usually flash faster when one burns out, or you could have faulty bulbs, mine was being stupid like this and i replaced the bulb even though it would light and it works again, also if you have submerged your jeep recently it could be cause... my turn signals filled witrh water burning out my bulbs soon afterward and then not letting anything work right... just a thought

belive it or not mine would work too... the bulb that was out just wouldnt flash, the rest would. -- i just messed with mine last night pondering for a half an hour... its worth a shot... bulbs are cheap i dont know what a flasher costs

Flashers are about the same no more than $2 a piece.
Usually when they are burning out the lights will flash faster and then stop working.

I believe that the 4way flasher and the signal flasher are exactly the same .. swap them over and see what happens ..
