Brake lights,turn signals,hazards Not working

I have a 97 Tj and the brake lights all dont work along with the turn signals and hazards. All the fuses are fine and there is power to the fuses but not to the taillights. The park lights in the back work and so do the reverse lights but the stoplights and blinkers dont. Any ideas?

Thats weird, I would say change the fuse anyways just in case it has a small crack that you can not see.

Could be a relay, perhaps...I'm not sure what's run alongside what in a '97. Check all of your connections.

If it's worth doing, then it's worth overdoing.

If you want to check the switch before replacing it, and yes the stop lamps do feed through the switch, go to...

Jeep Service Manuals

Select TJ, 96/97, and Turn Signal and Hazard Warning Systems in the drop down boxes. The continuity test for the pins is on page 3.

It does appear to be the switch as the stop lamps, turn signals and hazards are on on different fuses.

I have the same problem so i just replaced the turn signal switch thinking it would fix everything, however it did not. Any other ideas as to what it could be? A friend of mine said check the ground connections but im not sure where they are located or really what they look like.
