98 ZJ Blinkers stop working

Fuse and Relay have been replaced and the blinkers still stop after a few blinks. This issue just started a few days ago.

I've searched the forums and didn't see anything on the ZJ issues with this.

Anyone have any insight on what may be causing this issue?

Make sure you changed the right relay, I bought a relay, and put it into an empty space (Didn't read manual right.), and it never worked. I replaced the switch lever before I took a look at the relay again, and found that I put it into the wrong place.


You could also have a bad bulb somewhere.(Maybe?)

I only show a relay and a fuse in the owners manual. Is the relay in the same fuse panel?

There is a fuse for the blinkers, which when you take it out, nothing should happen when you use the turn signals, and then there is a relay that is semi hidden in the upper left corner of the fuse panel. (All in the passenger compartment.)
