Well I put in a new flasher and the blinking is now at normal speed. The ones that came out (non-original) read 53ohms and the new one read 43ohms so I guess that's part of the problem. I also found one stripped wire under the dash that I fixed, not for a turn signal but I'm sure it saved me some future headache.
My fuel gauge still flies around though both when the turn signal is on and when I hit bumps so I still have another problem. I tried my flashers and get nothing which is probably a big contributer here. I'm going to go clean up my grounds and see if that gets me anywhere. Is it possible the flasher switch is bad and grounding out?
The bulbs are all good and it's both sides, a burnt bulb would only affect one side woudn't it? I've never had one go on a jeep before (only thing that hasn't broken so far) but most cars only the bad side blinks.
