Left Turn Signal Not Working

Hey guyz I'm a newbie to this site but I spend most of my time at the grand cherokee srt8 forum. Anywayz I have 02 Liberty Renegade that I use as my daily driver. A few weeks ago my left turn signal stopped working. It does not work with my hazards, my key fob, or the turn signal switch. I replaced all the left bulbs both front and back and have yet to find a fuse that relates to the blinker. The little arrow in the flash does'nt flash either. Any ideas maybe I'm missing something. Damn do I hate electrical gremlins.
Thanx In Advance for any thoughts.

I have a similar problem. My small center left turn signal on the side of the jeep is not working. It does not work with the hazzard light either. Does anyone know where the ground is located for it? I would imagine that there is one fuse for all 6 turning light, correct?

Prob not a fuse. Check your relays.

I'm starting to think that my Flasher went bad. Does anyone know where they are located and how to get to them. I'd like to replace them before I bring it somewhere and get raped for a diagnostics and repair.

I have a 98 wrangler tj. The left turn signal is not working, it is not the bulbs or the flasher relay, and it's not showing up on the dashboard either. Help me please.

Some assembly required.

As crazy as this sounds, your problem may be in the turn signal switch itself. A contact might have worn or a spring may have failed. The only drawback is that you have to replace the entire assembly as that it is a unitized unit that also contains your headlight switch and the wiper switch(s). You will have to remove your steering wheel, but you have to follow the instructions on disarming your airbags first.

No I do not think it is the Multifunction Switch as the Hazard Flasher should work even if you pull out the Multifunction switch.

To the OP:

I would first suspect the wiring coming out of the Hazard Switch to the Left turn signal, the Dark Green/Red wire on pin 7 of the Hazard Switch/Combination Flasher. Put a meter on this pin 7 and check if you get +12 volts there when the Hazard switch is pressed or when the Left Turn Stalk is activated...if +12 volts is there then there is a break in your wiring coming out of the Flasher Switch.

If +12 volts is not on this pin seven then the Hazard Switch is defective.

Good point. But since I use to work at an auto parts store years ago, we use to diagnose and sell the turn signal switches and cams. When any of my vehicles had failed to operate on one side or the other, the fix has always been a new turn signal switch. BUT, with the Liberty, I am learning that the Hazard switch "could" be the culprit. I will follow along on this thread and see what the OP comes up with when he repairs the problem.

The OP hasn't stated if all of his flashers work with the Hazards on.

He did say it didnt work with hazards on, which I think implies that the passenger side was working with hazards on.

As I reread the thread I see that they have. I have overlooked that when I made my comment. My bad. I concur with your diagnosis.

Yep would be only one fuse probably...I will check the circuit diagram!

Put a voltmeter across the offending bulb and see if you pick up 12 volts there.

Then move the ground lead of your meter to a good clean chassis point....if you now pick up 12 volts on your meter then the ground is missing.

Easyist thing for a missing ground is to make up a new one from any nearby good clean chassis or body part.
