Turn Signal Flasher - Where is it located??????

Recently my turn signals started to slow down, and today they just stopped working all together. I don't have any bulbs burnt out, my turn signals stay light and don't flash when I turn on my blinker. I picked up a new flasher but I have NO IDEA where it is. I have a 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.0L.

Can someone please help??? I don't have a Hayes Manual or anything like that which is why I'm having a hell of a time locating it.

Yeah i found it what a joke, they couldn't have put it in a more jacked location, anyway it has been found and replaced and did cure the problem. Oh by the way it was under the steering column hidden behind the ding ding indicating you left your keys in the ignition.

I have my Haynes manual in front of me and this is what it says...i typed it quickly so ignore the spelling mistakes : (i have the illustration infront of me)

The illustration says: The turn signal and hazard flashers are mounted on the back of the convenience center on the 1993 models- in the interior fuse/relay panel on later models.

Turn Signal/hazard flasher-check and replacement:
Warning: These models are equipped with airbags. The air bab is armed and can deploy anytime the battery is connected. To d\isconnect the negative battery cable whenever working near the airbag components.After the battery is disconnected, wait at least 2 minutes before begining work (the system has a back up capacitor that must fully discharge)

The turn signal/hazard flasher is a small canister shaped relay that flashes the turn signals and hazard warning lights when either switch is activated. On 93 models, two separate units are mounted on the back of the convenience center located under the dash on the drivers side.

When the flasher unit is functioning properly, an audible click can be heard during its operation. if the turn signals fail onj one side or the other and the flasher unit doesnt make its characteristic clicking sound, a faulty turn signal bulb is indicated.

If both turnj signals fail to blink the problem may be due to a blown fuse, a faulty flasher unit, a broken switch or a loose or open connection. If a quick check of the fuse box indicates the turn signal fuse has blown, check the wiring for a short before installing a new fuse.

To replace the flasher simply detach it from its electrical connector and plug in the new one.

Make sure the replacementis identical to the original. compare the old one to the new one before installing it.

for the 1994 Grand Cherokee Limited model

this is what I found in the glove box (convience center?!?)

I turned ont he hazard lights to locate the origins of the clicking noise, and with the turn signals. As for whats under the steering column on the right side, must be for a different model.

When my flashers / hazard lights stopped then came back on I wiggled this fuse/relay/whatever and seems this is the culprit. Now I'm wondering if its this or the relay or controller that it sits in that might be the problem as well.

Maybe someone can shed some light.

As the guys at the dealership have said, this is the "flasher"



and this is where it's located in the glovebox.

That's it, but you realize this thread is more than a year old? Do you have any other questions?

I just bought a 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited and the turn signal and hazards don't work. I did a search and it brought me here but the diagram or pictures he had are gone and i have no manual. So i have no idea which fuse is the turn signal hazard flasher.

I have the flasher issue, found the flasher, but it will not budge, even with pliers. Of course now nothing flashes. Any ideas?

Can I spray wd-40 or something up in there to get it loose?
