Question about 2000 Jeep Wrangler

1 Answer

When I indicate, my radio turns off, and indicators/wipers go out

This has been happening for ages, but it usually only happened 1/100 times I was driving. It's now been happening much more frequently, about 90% of the time.

When I go to indicate, my radio will turn off and my Jeep won't indiciate (the wipers also stop working). If I re-start my car, it usually restarts fine (i.e. radio, wipers, and blinkers all working).

Does anyone have any ideas what is going on here? I'm going to take it in as its getting pretty dangerous driving without indicators, but this seems like it should be something small, and I don't want to get totally ripped off.

Thanks

    I have the same problem. It is fairly frequent that the wipers, the indicators and the radio will not come on. However, when I turn the key back towards me (when the car is off) they all work just fine! Sometimes, if you jiggle the key just right when you are driving they all come on, as well. Seems like it should be something simple but maybe it is hard to get to in the steering column?

Check that all bulbs are working, if one of the indicators light is gone it will tick faster.

When this happens usually you have to replace the indicator light relay, you find it in the fuse box.

Battery indicator light comes on above idle RPM, gauges start fluctuating.


The first thing you need to know is what the alternator output is when this starts happening.
It could be a faulty connection in the wiring harness, or a bad ground connection, or a failing alternator.

Thats pretty wild. The a/c and power windows are on different circuits.
The only thing I can think of that everything would be connected to is the ignition switch.

Intermittent wiper, turn indicator, rear screen demister not work


Electrical problems are rife in these models. Try replacing the relevant relay box - a black box situated in the fuse box bay. This will hopefully solve your problem. Good luck!

Driver's headlight is dim; wipers only work if headlight is off


Sounds like the jolt from the barrier has caused a bad ground to occur. Look for a bad ground wire around the left headlamp in or around the headlight bucket.
Tighten or replace the bad ground wire. A poor contact will cause the headlight to light dimly.
