Turns signals dont work hazards do

Okay my problem has been intermittent. 1 time the turn signals work and then later they dont. My hazards work. I grounded the grille wire on the passenger side and the wire that's on the drivers side to the battery. And verified continuity between them. Hazards illuminate all the lights they should , front grille , front fenders and tail lights. I hooked my test light to both terminals inside the front grille lights and the one of the two terminal flashed my test light when hazards were on but nothing when turn signals were on. If all these lights work then I dont see why it would be a ground issue but I dont know. I had my hand on the turn signal switch connector squeezing the wires but nothing came one. I also hear what I guess is my flasher click when I turn on either signal. What do you think ?

Turn signal flasher, turn signal switch, or a corroded connection somewhere would be my guess.

Do you have a TSM? The wiring diagrams are a good place to start.

agear,

With all the tinkering you seem to do on your CJ, you really need a TSM. Here is a link to the 1982 TSM. I like it much better than the '84-86 TSM.

Download each section to a folder on your computer. Then you will always have it. I use the alphabetical index to find which section has the info I'm looking for.

I'd trace the power from the turn signal switch to the flasher, then from flasher to turn signals. Somewhere along the line you are losing power, assuming all your grounds are good.

FYI, the turn signals ground thru the special shouldered screws that hold the TS housing to the grill.

Thanks pretty much what mechanic told me to do. We went kinda around our elbow because all along the flasher i replaced was for my hazards. My t.s. flasher is not mounted to the fuse panel but just hanging along the harness. Thanks guys. I also found a dim headlight which was a dirty chassis ground. Thanks again. Always something on mine.

What do the front fender turn signals get grounded to. If I remove the front grille turn/parking light the fender light will not come on. But if I put that turn signal on it will stay on solid not blinking.

The grill and fender lights are on the same weird circuit (kinda wired in series). You aren't using LED bulbs by chance are you? Do they behave any differently with the parking lights on/off? I assume the rear signals are working okay?

It's not the Voltage, but the Amperage that will kill you.

This may help to understand the TS/Parking light circuit.

Compliments to John Strenk.

Time to upgrade your browser, bud. It's difficult to help you, if you can't see attachments.
