My Jeep is Possessed - HELP!

It was raining here this evening and when I turned my lights on I noticed my right turn signal indicator was on steady (not blinking) but my turn signal wasn't on. I turned on my left signal and it worked but the right signal indcator stayed on (steady without blinking). I turned on my right signal and the outside signal blinked but the indicator stayed on (w/o blinking).

I turned my lights off and the left signal worked fine. However, when I tried to use my right turn signal, the signal didn't work but my dash lights flashed on and off.

What's up with THAT?!?

Clock spring or turn signal switch

Before you go throwing parts at it, I would give it a few days to dry out first. I leave my doors/windows off the entire summer and occasionally my turn signals do goofy things for a few days after it rains, but they eventually dry out and go back to normal

I had some issues with possessed driving lights and waited it out. Everything dried and they're back to normal.

I also have issues with the check engine light coming on after a really hard rain. Dries out and it's fine again. *shrug*

Leave it alone for a week to dry first and if there are still issues then I'd push for the clock spring. I've had a few weird things like that go away after a couple dry days.

It stopped raining last night. This morning the problem disappeared. Evidently it was moisture in the clock spring - whatever that is.

THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!!!
