99 TJ Turn Signals & Hazard Lights

Before I start let me say I've just found this forum so please excuse any new post-er mistakes.

I've searched the FAQ and the forums, found similar issues but not quite the same.

So here it is .... I have a 99 and my turn signals & hazard lights are inconsistently working / not working. Here are the scenarios - I think its a connection or electrical issue somewhere (admittedly I don't know much about these types of things).

The left turn signal works consistently. Sometimes it blinks really fast, other times normal. But seems to consistently come on.

The right turn signal doesn't work.

The hazard lights are intermittent. Wiggling the hazard switch can make them come on if they are off and vice versa (not all the time, but sometimes).

Sometimes when I turn the hazard lights on, then off, the right turn signal will then work.

I've checked the fuses behind the glove box and they seem to be fine. Not sure what else to check - if there is anything I can do to provide more info let me know.

Appreciate any thoughts or feedback.

Sounds like your flasher relay might be bad.

Thanks biffgnar - really appreciate the insight. Do you know any way to test or should I just pick one up and give it a shot? Also - is this something I can find at a local parts store (i.e. autozone) or a specialty shop?

You can get it at any parts store. No real test for it and the flasher shouldn't be that expensive. Give it a shot. If it doesn't work, come back and let us know. We will keep troubleshooting.

Oh, and welcome to the forum!

Could also be the multi switch in the steering column. If it is the flasher relay, they aren't expensive and most auto parts store have them. It's located under the dash and you can hear it clicking when the flashers are on (or turn signal if it's working).

Can one of you all help me with which flasher relay I need - I found two versions. One has five terminals, another four. I read a little online and apparently the five terminal module is the newer version (so I assume better) - but not sure if the two modules are interchangeable?

Appreciate the help.

Four-pronged relays are 97-00. The 01's and up are five. Not sure about their interchangability, but I would assume you should go with the year of Jeep. Please fill out your profile.
