Help!!!!! CJ 7 Turn Signals

OK guys here we go, 1983 CJ 7 4.2L Base, Non Tilt Column.

Turn signals worked but cancel cam and signal switch both had broken plastic pieces and needed to be replaced. Utilizing John Strenk's write up I dove in to this project.

Replaced the cancel cam, turn signal switch and a few defective horn parts, no problem. Now the horn and hazard lights work, but no turn signals.

I have already replaced both flasher fuses, even though they tested good. I also replaced the key lock cylinder and the ignition switch but still no signals. Any help is greatly appreciated.

As you probably realise your hazard light switch is part of the turn signal switch. If it is working it may not be an issue with the switch but i have seen broken ones where the plastic is bust and no matter how much you wiggle the turn stalk it will not close the switch. If you can feel it clicking, it is probably not the switch itself. Make sure your hazard button is all the way out.

You will also be aware that the Haz fuse is seperate fron the Turn fuse. You need to check you have voltage at the Turn fuse and then at the steering column connector. It should be the yellow wire I think but worth checking the wiring diagrams. If still no joy you may want to check continuity betewween the yellow wire and the light green wires when turning.

Thank You Bagus Jeep! Spent most of the morning tracing wires and found that the PO had retrofitted the plugs on the ignition switch and the "yellow" power wire that feeds the fuse block was in the wrong location. Restored all the wires to their factory locations and all of the sudden I have turn signals. Thank you again!!!!!
