2004 fuse #20 keeps blowing

I had my turn signals to quit working but the hazards work fine. I followed the steps to resoldier the pins on the flasher relay but did not fix the issue. I looked at the fuses and 20 was blown. Put a new one in and instantly blew again. Any suggestions?

Soldering was not done right and it sounds like there was a short created?
...assuming 20 is for turn signals.
New relay or check solders again and test one to the other with a meter to see where you have connectivity between the parts soldered.

I replaced the flasher relay with a new one, $60, instead of trusting my soldiering job. Replaced the blown fuse as well. Turned the key to the jeep and instantly the #20 fuse blew again. New relay with the same fuse blowing. Hazards work fine. Individual indicators still not working. Any other suggestions?

Hmm...so #20 was blown (or could have been) before the initial soldering job was performed.
Tell me what #20 is labeled to control...


Been towing a trailer recently?

I had a problem like this. If you tow check the wire harness from you hitch plug to your tail lights...if aftermarket. I had a bad wire that was tapped into the wiring from the tail light. Fixed it, fix my problem blowing the fuse.

wjjeeps.com/fuses.htm is where I found the diagram with descriptions of each fuse. I tow my mower and that's the heaviest thing I tow with it. After rereading the descriptions, my A/C is not working either. If I can stop #20 from blowing I might have A/C again!
