blinkers on strike

So I've come to the conclusion that my blinkers are on strike. they work when the want to. This started 2 days ago. I turn my blinker on and it would just stop working. No matter which way I tried to go, blinkers didn't work. At the end of the day I get back in the jeep to go home and everything works. Half way home, same problem. Any one have any idea? I checked the wiring connections and everything is fine. no cracks, splits, breaks, everything seems kosher.

Re: blinkers on strike

Sockets are a common problem. Have you checked those? Try to clean them and see if the problem persists.

1) "Use contact spray to clean the bulb socket. The sockets are prone to calcification, rust and debris. Use a tip of sandpaper to clean the bulb contact points inside the socket to assure good contact. If a good bulb illuminates after a socket cleaning, the socket connector caused the problem."

2) Locate the main fuse box. Depending upon the model, it will be located in the engine compartment or behind the left front passenger side kick panel. Examine the fuse for a broken filament; replace if it shows damage. Use a test light to check both ends of the fuse holder while someone applies the turn signal. No flash from the test light indicates no electricity to the fuse. In some cases you might have to turn the ignition key to the "On" position.

I think F20 is the turn signal fuse.

Re: blinkers on strike

Most likely the flasher relay.. its located under the drivers side dash with the other relays above the fuses.

Re: blinkers on strike

Had similar issue when I brought my jeep and it worked out to be the hazard lights mechanism. Easy fix by replacing the indicator stalk (US $34).
Went through all the motions with connections, relays, fuses etc....
Easy to replace yourself providing you take the precaution of removing fuse/relay to fire the airbag (sorry cannot remember which one it is).
