Turn signal and flasher wont work

Hello everyone(anyone),

It seems my turn signals will not work along with the flasher. I have read that it can be the relay, so I picked one up and it still wont work. Was wondering if anyone could think of a different reason before I blow the money on the multi functioning switch? Yes, the fuse is good and it is getting power. Everything else works on the (MFS) except what was noted.

I had a corroded bulb that kept mine from working.

Turn signals won't work when flashers are on.I'm guessing you really didn't mean what you said.

I would try a new flasher relay. They're pretty cheap.

I just had the issue where my side marker would work and blinker would work when turned on however it would not stay on as a running light. The passenger side was vice versa, the blinker would work to blink and running light but side marker did not work. I replaced the blinker socket on both which was corroded in the same place, the center pin. After replacing that my driver side worked perfectly. The passenger side side marker was corroded but after using a little pb blast and a small brush and cleaning it out very well, everything works and I finally have all my lights working.

Sockets could be the issue, which I got at the dealership for 12 bucks and, or it could be sockets being corroded or bad. Try replacing blinker sockets and then cleaning the side marker sockets.

Hope this helps.

Actually I did mean what I said,"It seems my turn signals will not work along with the flasher". Said nothing about turn signals working with flashers.

note: I did replace the flasher. My other lights work, except turn sig. and flashers. I'll check corrosion. But, I think I better get ready to fork out $118 to auto-zone....

I had an issues that sounds alot like yours. replaced the bulbs, cleaned the grounds and checked the flasher. It ended up being the socket the light plugs into. Replaced the socket and it works fine. Driver side turn signal.

You must have factory fog lights on the switch.If you don't,the switch is much cheaper.

Picked up a 2000 TJ tonight, no brake lights, no turn signals, no 4-way flasher. Fuses okay, sprayed electrical contact cleaner into 4 way flasher part of switch. Now have brake lights and 4-way flashers. Still no turn signals, but out of cleaner. Will try flooding it tomorrow. Lots of years fixing electricla problems, that stuff is magic for switches.

I'm surprised Boogie didn't suggest flushing your blinkers and adding some aftermarket fluid.... Boogie, love your posts I always find them humorous that's why its kinda hard to believe you have to get rid of your jeep for the reasons you stated in a different thread , if true, I'm really sorry
