Park lights blow fuse, one turn signal out

2005 Wrangler, 6cyl 6speed.

Just bought this jeep, checked over all but forgot to check parking lights.

Upon return to home found that parking lights won't light and 20 amp fuse was blown. Replace fuse and it blew again. Check all bulbs and wiring that can be found easily. Replace fuse and lights worked for a few minutes, turn on auxilary driving lights and fuse blows again. Auxilary lights still work.

Go back and check all wiring again can't find any short to ground with wires.

Now the drivers side turn signal does not work. It worked fine and all of a sudden it stopped. Rear drivers side works, light blinks fast due to no load on front light. Voltage at front light connector appears to ramp up to about 6 volts so it is being held back.

Dash lights don't work and interior lights over roll bar only turn on when you activate switch on column. Interior lights don't light when door is opened. Light under dash won't light but this may be the bulb.

Is the light switch control circuit contained in the steering column or is it under the dash?

I believe this circuit board has issues, saw another post about this but don't know if I should pull the unit out of the column or if the circuit board is located somewhere else.

thanks for any help.

You probably need to head over to the TJ section. The guys here are more used to working on the older YJs. Sound like possilbly several issues.

Problem solved

Main problem was the turn signal light control switch. Bought new unit at Napa Auto for $78.00. Very easy to replace, 2 screws to remove plastic cover over column and 2 that held unit in place. 2 electrical connectors and that was it.
