My Jeep's having some weird issues with the left turn signal.
First the Left Signal started blinking much faster than the Right Signal. It did this for a while...
Today the Left Signal light on dash turned solid (not blinking) and makes a loud buzzing sound when it's on. The signal light itself is not working at this point.
Also, maybe unrelated but weird. During the "fast blinking phase" the beeping noise that you hear when the keys are in the ignition and you open the door would randomly come on when i was driving. It would beep for a couple minutes and then stop. One day I discovered if you turn the Right Signal on it would stop the beeping. Weird.
Anyone experience any of this kind of craziness with their Jeeps?
Is the signal something I can fix myself? (I'm not much of a mechanic, but I like to tinker)
If anyone can help with this I'd really appreciate it! Thanks in advance!!
Had a similar problem on my 06 LJ. Turned out to be water inside the the left turn signal enclosure. Turn sharp or stop too fast and it would short out the bulb and act crazy till the moisture got out of the connector.
I had some issues similar to what you're having on my 99 TJ. It drove me crazy chasing down ground points and checking bulbs. Finally, I checked my front socket on the side I was having issues with and found the metal contacts inside were the problem. I had one missing and one loose. I did have a bulb burn out prior to the crazy issues which gave me the fast flash. The contact must have fallen out when I replaced the bulb. Hope this helps!
I had a very similar issue, after replacing damn near everything, it ended up being the flasher relay. But i would agree with every one else and start small with looking at the bulbs and harnesses first.
A standard function of the electrical setup is to flash fast whenever the voltage changes significantly (when a bulb is out) so your Jeep is doing what it is supposed to do. Check all your bulbs, replace everything that doesn;t look right (bulbs are cheap) and your problem will hopefully go away.
My 97 did something similar, and it turned out to be a worn out socket that allowed the bulb to shake loose.
I think I'm having the same issue.
Last week I noticed my Rt Front Turn Signal was out. Tapped on it and it came back on. Took it apart and it looked like the bulb was a little loose. Also, the socket had separated from the wiring harness a little. Couldn't get it to click back together though. Think it needs to be replaced?
