Hi there I posted a new question regarding the issue of my blinker problem. It seems that you have to pull the whole headlight assembly off to access the turn signal bulb. The question is now how do you do that? I for the life of me cannot figure it out. By the way there is no access from under the bumper. Thanks though. If you know how the darn thing comes off, that would be really helpful.

There seems to be a common problem on a lot of Jeeps with the rear tail light sockets or the wiring right at them. You would need to pull the whole assembly out and apart. See if you can spot a problem with the sockets. It would help to have a voltmeter or test light to keep checking for power at the sockets as you wiggle wires and bulb sockets. If you can't find the problem, consider replacing the whole assembly with new or used.
The turn signal socket, where the bulbs are fitted, needs to be inspected.Also the wiring needs to be inspected.Wiggle the socket and wiring a bit, then check, if the blinkers start working or not.----------
There is a troubleshooting procedure to confirm the fault,Click this link below and go through the procedure :---
This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.
I had a SIMILAR problem for months. I thought the solenoid in the emergency blinker button was broken (because that was where the abnormal blinking would come from) but that wasn't the problem.
Take the top cover off of the steering column.
Remove the three screws from the underneath side of the column and remove the bottom cover.
(this may be a pain in the **** to get back on later!)
there is one screw on the top of the column that you must remove and then the whole blinker assembly will slide right off the top.
Disconnect the harnesses at the back of if it and take it to a workstation...here's where your problem is.
On the blinker side back side remove the cover screws and notice that the copper plate the blinker switch moves across is probably full of dirty grease that is probably preventing good contact or abnormal blinking. Take care to remove the grease from the plate and from between the different gaps along it's path.
Re-assemble and take care to push in a couple little switch/buttons when placing the blinker assembly back on the column.
I hope this helps. Since you are having a problem with irregular timing on your issue then, IN MY OPINION, you have something that must be making irregular contact. This really isn't too bad of a repair and if you'd rather just buy new parts (though I don't know why you would) it's about 60 bucks at autozone or probably around 15-20 at a U-pull-It type auto salvage.
