Arjay Check the contact boards in both tail lights for any warping (usually in the running light socket) between board and bulb contacts. This is a known issue in WJ tail lights where the rear bulbs start acting whacky if bulbs are not making a good contact. There is a thread about it on this forum somewhere if you do a search.

We found our Lexus uncomfortable.
So we flogged it.

GoatGuy I've got both aftermarket LED headlights and taillights. I switched out the flasher relay when I installed them and everything seemed to work fine to start. When I use the flashers, without the brakes, they work great. It's only when I apply the brakes do they stop flashing.

Lol good one. Nope. Had 7 yes seven AC head units, a rear driver side window that rolls down on its own intermittently out of the blue. Replaced all window motor systems, replaced the wires in the door-body grommets due to cracked copper crap alloy they used. He’ll I have 100k more miles on my Lexus and I’ve replaced one window motor only. Nothing else electrical. I just replaced the alternator (yes OEM original) at 310k miles!!

Mechanically I LUV the WJ. Electrically mine SUXs. Baaaaaaad. Inexcusable.

'04 Overland here with the similar problem.

Do you have aftermarket taillights or have you swapped any of the exterior bulbs over to led?

Mercedes have the exact same problems and their owners don't complain.

The Merc techs have seen it a thousand times and just fix it and the customer expects to pay the bill. Same for the timing chain guides and a host of other things.

Bigrigr Agree with Delta here, sounds like a bad ground somewhere. Double check the bulb holders in the rear lights . They are known to have bad connections that effect the turn signals. Just a place to start...
